Like most, I like bargains, especially on tequila. So I took a chance on a rebate deal recently that bundled Cazadores Tequila with one of my go-to gin brands. Priced at $23 for blanco and $26 for reposado, both were more than affordable, and with some cash back incentive, I figured it was worth the chance to grab both. If not thrilled with either, I knew they’d likely serve well in cocktails.
Those familiar with Tequila Cazadores’ labels know its mascot is a proud stag. Yet a good swig is all it takes to convince that this reposado isn’t quite as fuerte as that big-racked buck.
Neither the label nor the brand’s website shares any details of just how long the Highlands agave tequila is rested, but the straw color and light body attest to a fairly brief stay. The site does say it enjoys a double distillation and maturation in virgin American oak, but that’s it.
