However, When suggesting this idea people have looked at me like I have three heads, or suggest that such an event would be no more than an invitation to spend the rest of the night emptying their stomach into the nearest receptacle. Oh well.
I’m curious if there is a universally accepted way for “aficionados” to take their tequila. How do you enjoy drinking yours?

2) Herradurra is considered a benchmark of good tequila by many. Haven't had it in a long time, so I really can't comment.

Sorry to say, I enjoyed these samples much more. I can appreciate tequila neat on a cerebral level, but for pure enjoyment & relaxing on a hot day, I enjoy the doctored up “margarita” version much more. I guess I have to turn my tequila enthusiast card into the authorities immediately.

Now, that's just ridiculous, Frodo. Fratboys are never sorry about anything!
