Had to grab a bottle of Tres Generaciones Tequila añejo expression out of NOM 1102 to pop open for this glorious Sunday Football tequila menu!
I’ve had this before on a previous occasion, but was admittedly already lit when I finally poured up a glass of it hahaha!
So today I wanted to actually try it with a sober(ish) mind to get a real idea of where I’d rank this expression.
Their añejo was going for about $35 a bottle at the time I bought it.
So obviously that’s a great price for a bottle to share with a large crowd on a football Sunday where everyone is just drinking instead of sipping to appreciate everything in their glasses.
The cheapest place I was able to find it online was $37 from Caskers.com before tax & shipping.
However, this is a widely distributed brand throughout the nation so you most likely can find it at your favorite local spot.
From the first sip, I get a good amount of pepper on the front end with some slight vanilla sweetness to it.
There was a little bit of alcohol heat to it, but subsided once I let it rest and get a little bit of air.
The agave that came through was good enough for a $35 bottle to me and I rather enjoyed it for the price I paid.
TLA Recommended Ways To Enjoy
As you’ve heard time and time again, I’m always going to recommend you at least try a tequila neat to start.
This one is no different!
I enjoyed this mostly neat and was able to sip on it all day neat without wanting to switch to a cocktail or a better quality tequila for a more enjoyable neat pour.
I also enjoyed this in a paloma and honestly liked it even more!
The pepper added a nice spice to the paloma and the agave really blended well with the grapefruit from the Squirt Soda I used to mix up my the paloma with.
Rating & Tequila Taste Category
In terms of rating..
This is a Table Bottle all the way!
The $35 price tag alone lands it in that category.
The flavor and the rest just makes it better than a mixer bottle.
The main taste category I would put this in is the Pepper Bomb Tequila category.
That was the main flavor I picked up from start to finish on each sip of this expression.
This tequila would definitely be good for those bourbon/whiskey lovers looking for a cross over tequila or those who love a stronger pepper tequila.
Check out the photo below of the bottle to see what to pick up on your next liquor store trip!

As promised in the last post, these are my top 15 añejos (as of right now)! Of course these are in no certain orders and are coming without any explanation of why they make my top 15 but that’s to come at a later time.
I’ve been fortunate enough to try a ton of different extra añejos over the years and I’ve loved just about all of them! Over time though, there were some clear cut winners and losers when it comes to which one is the best.
