Now that's how you do a tasting!
Oliver Hiller we tip our hats to you sir.
We started with some great history/mythology surrounding the Agave and Mexico.
Without wasting time, he brings us the El Jimador Blanco. When it comes to white tequila, I'm not the biggest fan. I can say however that El Jimador blanco is the best of the lot "for me, this embodies exactly what agave tastes like" - Oliver Hiller.
Then we have the reopsado (rested). This is my go to tequila, even if I'm going for something else. Not only does it make the only margarita you should drink but it's fantastic neat.
To finish we had one of the most amazing spirits, Montelobos Jovan Mezcal. I describe it as if whiskey and tequila had a baby. It's smokey, smooth and slightly spicy. I mixed it in an old fashioned using
10ml honey water
2 dashes of orange bitters
This for me is a perfect serve for this intense spirit.
See you tomorrow for oysters and cheese!
