Deserted island tequila?

Read More

I just conducted a thought experiment. Let’s assume the tired old trope of being stranded on a deserted island indefinitely. If by some serendipitous circumstance you find there are crates upon crates of tequila on the island as well, what tequila would you most like it to be?

I had to think about it for a bit. If this is the only booze I’m able to have for the foreseeable future, I’d like it to check as many boxes as possible. I adore a pour of Pasote blanco or Fortaleza Still Strength, but they’re devoid of any cask influence. A reposado would address this, but most reposados I’ve had have (appropriately) restrained cask notes and would not really quell the craving for a wood-forward spirit like bourbon or cognac or some rums. So I settled on an extra añejo that retains robust agave notes.

TL,DR: my deserted island choice is Tapatío Excelencia XA. I bet it would even mix well with juices made from whatever fruits I can forage.
