So I have had a bottle of Maestro Dobel Diamond Tequila in my liquor cabinet for a month. It’s a high-end tequila that is endorsed by Perry Farrell and sells for about $55 a bottle. It’s a combination of reposado (6+ month aged) añejo (1+ year aged), and extra añejo (really aged, ok?) tequila, but it’s still diamond-clear.
Unfortunately, I don’t like the taste of the stuff. It doesn’t mix well in drinks – I tried several margaritas and a Brave Bull, and I really disliked it. The bottle itself is absolutely classy, though: hand numbered with a steel base and crystalline glass – plus the stopper is heavy enough to kill a man when launched at a high velocity.
Unfortunately, as much as I’m a sucker for a snazzy package, the taste fell short.
I hope this isn’t the last time I need to write this phrase in my lifetime: “I’m sorry, Perry Farrell.“
