Awesome Bottle - Tequila's Not Bad!

From Tequila Gringo:   We were pretty sceptical of this just because the bottle looked like a marketing gimick (it is).  But we picked up one anyway as a gift for a friend because that marketing gimick works (it's awesome).  Two things happened.  One, the guy we gave it to absolutely LOVED it.  Two, it shocked the heck out of us when it turned out to be an ok tequila, we liken it to Cazadores Repo.  Pale yellow color and an agave smell.  Medium heat.  Agave notes.  WAY better than Cuervo.  Not on the best list, but who cares, it's a completely awesome gift.  Next time you're going to a party, taking a trip to Mexico, whatever - show up with a couple of these and you'll be talked about for the rest of your life as that awesome guy/gal who brought the tequila in the pistols.  And yes, they also make a rifle - it's $100 bucks but it's pretty amazing looking and comes with a wood stand.  One note - we're getting reports that this is a mixto, not 100% agave.  Bevmo lists it as 100% agave on their site but our readers are saying it's not.  So, beware of hangovers!

No store in the state carries these. They have been turned down a couple of times by the LCB in trying to place the product in state liquor stores. I would look on eBay or at an online retailer.

Tequila is not bad, but a definite conversation piece

4

It's not often I get home from the store and sample a tequila I just bought. However, I had to know if this was a gimmic or a well worth the purchase. I took a small sample, and would guess it is a mixto, but had a hard time deciphering. It was very drinkable, with agave notes and a little smokeyness, but burned on the way down and was somewhat unsmooth. It wasn't a bad reposado, I'm glad I only purchased one. I will sample it out to a few of my tequila sipping buddies. Other than a conversation piece, the Hijos de Villa was $22 for a 200mL bottle, which put an approximate $75 price tag on a 750mL - not worth the price.

I'll give Hijos de Villa Reposado Tequila a four out of five star rating for two reasons: one presentation which makes it a great conversation piece. And two, the tequila is very drinkable and well worth sampling at the smaller price even though it's a smaller bottle. Just don't set your expectations too high; there are much better reposados around - just not with a bottle as cool as this!

what a great gift

I loved it. I am not a reposado lover. Siilver is my thing. But I love the botle. Excellent conversation piece. Not many tequila lovers where I am. This was the best. I can't wait to get the rifle!

Great Find

Bought mine at Costco after Finding a bottle with the number #1911. Since this is the actual model number of the pistol (Colt 45 Model 1911) I had to buy it. Very Cool
