Sauza 901 Tasting {#sponsor product review}


A little while back I was contacted by some media folks who offered me a bottle of Sauza 901.*

Why not?

I mentioned it to some friends on our last camping trip in September and they all had the same question: Where is it?

Whoops. I hadn't brought it.

So, for our annual Halloween camping trip last weekend, I packed the bottle, some skull shot glasses - that seemed festive -, organic limes, and some Himalaya salt.

I had many willing tasters around the campfire that evening. Thanks, guys and gals!

About Sauza 901...
At first I thought this might be just another celebrity endorsement...and typically I steer clear of those. However, it appears Justin Timberlake traveled to Jalisco, Mexico and actually took an active role in creating his own tequila several years ago. This triple-distilled tequila is the result. Its name: 901 refers to his hometown area code in Memphis. That's kind of a nice detail.


Tasting...
I didn't muddle it up with too many other flavors and steered clear of making cocktails. I wanted to taste it mostly pure. So, I served it with just some salt and lime. And I was delighted. Sauza 901 is super smooth with light spice and some smoky and herbaceous notes.

At first I thought that I would just taste a little for the review and end up cooking with the rest. But I just might enjoy the entire bottle with friends and skip the tequila shrimp. Salud!
