So finally posting about this delicious pour!
As you can see, this bottle of @tequilamalavida añejo has been cracked several times over before this post and may not last through the weekend!
I also decided to pair it with another stick out of the amazing @708cigars lineup.
This one is the 708 Cigars Three Tone box press stick that starts with as a maduro, transitions to a connecticut, and ends as a habano.
This tequila has a unique flavor to it!
I’m tasting more of a oaky, vanilla, and agave mixture to it with little to no pepper on the back end at all.
It’s kind of making this stick even sweeter than it actually is.
It’s a different pairing overall, but I like the change up as a whole!
Definitely would recommend you guys going out to grab both!
I picked up this bottle from @kenwoodliquors for about $55-$60 and the stick from T.P. Cigar Lounge in Matteson, IL for about $15 a stick.
Keep scrolling to check out all the ways I recommend you enjoy Mala Vida Tequila’s añejo expression.
Also, make sure to go visit the Mala Vida Tequila TLA Brand Page, link is also posted below!
My Recommended Ways Of Enjoyment
As you guys already know, I drink most spirits neat and this is no acception! I honestly think this is a perfect bottle for a neat daily pour and at the price tag it’s not too expensive to have a block of ice or a couple cubes added to it.
I don’t think it needs any ice though!
I feel like it would also be nice in a tequila old fashion or a nice tequila pineapple and lime cocktail on a hot day.
Either way you choose, I don’t think you’ll go wrong with this expression!
Ranking–Cork & Keep
My ranking on this bottle is definitely a cork & keep bottle!
Even though it’s not that expensive at $55-$60, it’s unfortunately kind of hard to find in the wild!
So unless you want to order this bottle through the link in their brand page posted below, you’re going to want to hold on to this añejo until you find another one out there to replace it.
Taste Category- Well Balanced
This bottle is definitely a great blend between sweetness, black pepper, fresh agave, and delicious fresh water.
From start to finish you’re getting a mixture of each and it perfect for an every day pour for all.
Man I wish this was more readily available near me!
Cheers TLA Fam!
