Definitely a great Tequila Podcast

After episode one I was hooked. If you are true tequila lover and want to learn more then just your basic information. Then this the podcast for you. Give it a listen. Share it with friends. Sincerely Tequila Maestro

Barely tolerable

Good info from interviews but otherwise it’s very amateur.
Brent is good but listening to Gary (G Hawkinz on Twi-ahh as he likes to say) is clueless. Implies he is the anejo lovwr, yet the only anejos he likes is low on agave flavor and drinks it on the rocks. Why have someone on to comment about tequila when they do all they can to hide the agave. He doesn’t like blancos, and thinks cristalinos (he calls them cristaleens) are clear because they are distilled one extra time. Do some research, you insult the intelligence of your audience. Plus he can’t stop saying how smooooth overly sweet anejos are. If you’re on a podcast about any liquor and can’t come up with a descriptor other than smooth, you should find another topic to podcast about. His stupidity really kills the credibility of this podcast.

Tequila is for Drinking

I love tequila. Love the stuff.

But I have a hard time getting into this podcast. It doesn’t spark joy.
