  1. I was waiting for this to pop-up because I missed the first few minutes the other night. 9pm sneaks up on you quicker that one might think. I always know when it’s 7pm but 9pm is another story! (CST) LOL! Excellent show! Trader Joe’s was the winner! The bottle looks somewhat like Siete Leguas! The TJ’s had a real cork too! And you know it’s good when the reposado beats out the extra anejo!

  2. Thanks for the comments. Rasta! I think I’ll keep the doodling around as another “arrow in the quiver” kinda thing. It’ll also be good to be able to sketch out flavor profiles and tings that might resemble a football game’s graphic overlay (X’s & O’s..)

  3. I coulda done without the prison music, HaHa but other wise a good show as always! Sorry I missed you this week. Enjoying the archive.

  4. This is definitely one of my favorites! I’m linking to it in our post tomorrow for our loyal Bar Flies! Thanks for sharing your tequila expertise with the world!

  5. i liked that Trader Joes. mind it was taken pass’n’swig at the ritual level, high desert,
    that kind of thing.

    you’re adorable.

  6. My first taste of Trader Joe’s “Distinqt” was at a fireworks show on the water in Sausalito. I guess it’s a kind of ‘celebration” repo??!?

    Thanks for watching, “Floozy”!
