I disagree. As someone who has taken middle school spanish it appears to say Asom Bros. Dangerously close to Awesome Bros aka the Bang Bros

Hey, I didn't mess this up. Look at the bottle. They obviously made it two words.

Re: Double-Blind Tequila Taste Test

To drag this thread into the gutter, the description my friend gave me when saying I should try AsomBrosa is that "I can't remember the name, something Rosa, but the bottle looks like a huge penis."

She was, in fact, correct.

Re: Double-Blind Tequila Taste Test

Thanks Wookie.
We have tried this with just 3 types a couple of times. We had a mix of crap(Cuervo Gold), Special edition Sauza Añejo and El Jimodor Reposado... Sauza won. 4 1sts and one 2nd. Cuervo voted last by everyone.

2nd Time was a Two Fingers(don't remember what type), 1800 Anejo and Sauza Hortinos. The Sippers prefered the 1800 and everyone else(4 people) picked the Sauza. Two Fingers was a step below and was much harsher. But I believe it was just the cheap stuff.

We just have someone(a tequila hater) pour everyone three one/two oz glasses in another room and bring us marked glasses. So everyone does know the red glasses are the same stuff... not perfect but blind with a small social bias.

Love your booze reviews.

yeah i agree with this - it CAN be done. although for me it's hard not to think of various terrible experiences on tequila so i can't do it anymore. alas.

nice post wookie, wasn't surprised where patron ended up, the winner i've never heard of.

Re: Double-Blind Tequila Taste Test

Doesn't the AsomBros bottle say 200% Agave? I don't even know what that means, but that's what it looks like.

I also like how you got the gf brag in there as well.

Fun times Wook. Glad to see Patron is probably more marketing than taste, cause I don't particularly like it.

I think it's just the oddities of a digital picture. My bottle definitely only says 100%.

Interesting. Do you remember if the Two Fingers you tried was gold or clear? Also, was the Sauza Hornitos you tasted the blanco, reposado, or anejo?

And also, I don't think too many of us are actually planning on sipping many of these straight in the future, although I'd consider it with the Asom Broso and the Hacienda Vieja. It's just that in order to get a good sense of what we liked the taste of, we'd take a few sips to give it a more thorough evaluation rather than a quick shot. We did the same thing with vodka.

Re: Double-Blind Tequila Taste Test

MrWookie,

I wish to commend you for your great public service in performing these tests.

As an aside, I would like to report that some friends and I performed a similar double-blind test using all the white tequilas available in San Miguel de Allende in 1975. There were approximately 7 of them. First place was unanimous: Herradura. This despite the fact that Herradura, at ~=$1.90 a liter, was ~70¢ more than any of the other runners.

Second place was not awarded.

Re: Double-Blind Tequila Taste Test

Awesome thread, gonna have to try some Asom Brosa.

I forget what won the Vodka thread, but wasn't Smirnoff rated much higher than a lot of the expensive stuff?
