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.
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.
In this episode Lippy discovers the hidden taste secrets between the 100% agave Quita Penas blanco and the less pure “mixto” version of the same. Which tequila will reign triumphant? And will Lippy EVER stop singing?
Th’ Lip goes for the slow and steady approach. He tastes all three ages of Pueblo Viejo tequila (old recipe “TREASURE BOTTLES”) — then tops ’em off with a taste of their patriarch, Orgullo 2 yr. anejo. It’s a Casa San Matias mash-up you don’t want to miss. Add the formidable (and visually elusive) “Vicky V” into the mix, and you have yourself another first class tequila frenzy! Enjoy!
Lippy is Captain of the tasting ship on this wild and raucous tasting between Partida blanco & 7 Leguas blanco. Who will win? Which tequila gets ANNOYING? Which tequila does lippy pull out of the “vault” to ease his palate – pain??!?
