Tequila Tasting

There’s more than one type of tequila and they’re not just for margaritas. So how is one tequila different from another?  There’s only one way to tell: tequila tasting.  As with fine wine, quality tequila is a drink to be savored like cognac or brandy. Quality tequila does not need lime and salt, which dull the flavor, but benefits instead from cinnamon and orange, which enhance it.  Tequila tasting combines various small but important details to make the flavor pop in your palate.
