The Tequila Whisperer Show is always fun to watch, but it’s even more fun when you get to be an actual guest on the show, as we were last week. Not only does Lippy have a talent for tasting tequila, but he’s gracious, and highly entertaining – both on and off the air. We remain big fans, and it was an honor to be invited.
The show went for 1 hour and 40 minutes, but it seemed like 20 minutes to us (and to the viewers, we hope!). In that period of time, we compared Olmeca Altos using 100% stone-crushed agave with Olmeca Altos that used 100% shredded (“molino”) agave and the commercially available version of Olmeca Altos (80% shredder, 20% stone crushed.)
We also tasted Yeyo blanco, El Tesoro “white label” blanco, El Reformador blanco, a special version of Casa Noble gold single barrel that is 108-proof (!), and Fortaleza añejo (lot 12.) What a wonderful lineup!
Or, you can watch this video (and many more episodes) on the Tequila Whisperer site.
We also got to spend a chunk of time talking about Tequila Matchmaker, our new (free) mobile app.
