Soltado Tequila: Mexico, Packing Heat

Tue, 21 Mar 2017 01:38:45 UT

I was sent a sample bottle of Soltado Tequila about four months ago and actually laughed out loud when I opened the box. The notion of a true añejo Tequila (this stuff spends twenty-eight months in oak barrels, folks!) infused with Serrano peppers and Mexican canela (cinnamon) led logically to two questions: 1) Why mess with a properly-aged añejo? and 2) Why, period? Soltado is a Mexican brand that’s produced by all 80 of the agave farmers in Juanacatlán, a town in the midlands of the tequila-producing state of Jalisco. What possible marketing rationale could these presumably sane people have for doing this;  for making a Tequila that would seem, at least,



PICK OF THE WEEK.

Sat, 18 Mar 2017 23:19:01 UT

We all know that Merlot gets a bum rap. Hollywood, without knowing it at the time,  hurt Merlot sales for many years with the entertaining movie Sideways. Unfortunately many people who watched that movie did not catch the irony of the last scene. But, that is not all that hurt the sales of this noble grape. Merlot was hugely popular in the seventies and eighties. As a result many producers from the central coast of California pumped out tons of insipid Merlot hoping to benefit from its popularity. Now, I am very excited to see a slow comeback of this varietal. Washington State is a big reason for that as

Full Sail’s Iconic (Canned!) Session Lager: The Craft Newbie’s Gateway Pour

Thu, 16 Mar 2017 23:45:21 UT

First, let’s stipulate that what you’re about to read comes from a very unapologetic Beer Snob. MAJOR beer snob. I’m not a snob about wine or Whiskey or Vodka or anything else I review and, even in beer, I’m a snob about ONE thing: cheaply made, cynically conceived, watery, insipid, mass-produced adjunct Pilsners like BudMillerCoorsPabst. That’s it. That and anything else made along those dumbed-down lines. I’ve had people who took this to mean that I just don’t like Pilsners; some even extrapolated that to include all Lagers…which is crap. I adore a well-made Pilsner but, until the past eight or ten years, most Americans had never tasted a well-made
