5-Way BLIND Tasting (episode 6) tequila review

Lippy puts his (ample) ass and reputation on the line in this special 5-way BLIND Tasting event! Can th’ Lip pick out not only the AGES of the 5 tequilas, but also their BRANDS?

Check out the HUGE pours his lovely “assistant” has provided and you know why the 2nd half of this show gets LOUD, LOOSE and LETHAL! Can he even stay atop that stool? Watch and be AMAZED at the prowess.

*Addendum* –

On this show I came down MIGHTILY heavy on Corralejo repo. I commented that it tasted “chemically — like strange chemical soapy dishwater”. And I HATED it more with each sip!

Well I recently attended a wedding and tried a current bottle of Corralejo repo and it was NOT anywhere near related to the junk I had on the show! It was a solid repo if somewhat BORING. I’ll be re-tasting Corralejo in the future — but for now, let me state that I must have gotten a “bad” bottle.

My sincere apologies, Corralejo.
