    This is good tequila, here where I live El Tesoro anejo costs about $50.00 for a 750 ml bottle. This tequila taste good enough to drink it strait up on the rocks. Goes good with 7up too. I still have just enough in the bottle to smell it sometimes.

    El Tesoro is quite possibly the best Tequila out there and very few people know about it. Carlos is the master distiller and forgive the fact that I don't know his last name. These are Tequilas that are what Tequila should taste like and not those that are ruined by the American Yippie taste. Old World with earthy Agave and style. If you "really" like Tequila then this should be your next. Don't worry the ghost has never left Mexico and fortunately for us the excellent Tequila has.
