"Sophisticated Tequila Drinker" an oxymoron you say? Perhaps, but that doesn't mean the tequila itself can't be and Clase Azul is one sophisticated experience, starting with the visual: a beautiful blue and white hand-made ceramic bottle that looks good behind any bar, to the taste: incredibly smooth & slightly sweet, almost like a cream soda (similar to, but not quite, the sweetness you find in a Ron Zacapa rum). Seriously, take a look at that bottle. It's beautiful. And the taste inside matches the aesthetic. A bottle of Clase Azul will set you back a bit ($90 for a 750 ml bottle), but this is something to savor and enjoy a little bit at a time and, once you're done, you'll be able to enjoy gazing at the bottle sitting on the shelf, whether you leave it as is or decide to fill it with Patron or Cuervo and serve to unsuspecting guests (in that event, using for body shots and tequila poppers is acceptable).
I don't even like Tequila and I love this stuff. For me, its a toss up between the Clase Azul and the Don Julio 1942 Tequila Anejo for the best Tequila out there. Give it a try if you have a chance and let me know what you think.
