Casa Noble Reposado

S1035-2

We’re on to the second round of Casa Noble’s most basic line of tequilas. We started earlier this week with the Crystal (blanco) which exceeded our expectations with a very pleasant sweetness and earthiness that was strikingly different than other blanco tequilas we’ve reviewed.

French Oak

This Cocktails, 365 original utilizes the pepperiness and sweetness of the Casa Noble Crystal (blanco) with light touches of bitterness from Campari and citrus. The name comes from Casa Noble’s decision to age their tequila in french oak barrels. 3 oz Casa Noble Crystal tequila .5 oz Campari bitters Juice from one lime 2 dashes […]

Casa Noble Crystal

Casa Noble is closely tied with godlike guitarist Santana. It offers ultra premium tequilas in a range of offerings, so we figured we’d run down the main line (blanco, repasado, anejo) to see how they stack up and if you’re just paying extra bucks for Santana’s stamp of approval.

The Botanist Dry Islay Dry Gin Part One: The Taste Test

TheBotanist_Neat

So, we were legitimately fascinated when we first came across information about The Botanist. You see, it was using terminology that we have more often come to associate with scotches more than gins. Which stands to reason, actually, at The Botanist comes from the Bruichladdich distillery along the Rhinns in Islay. Scotch is their bread and butter. In fact, their scotch […]

Campari Part Three: The Verdict

Campari

So, we here at Cocktails, 365 are often wary of recommending expensive liqueurs. They don’t often take center stage of the cocktail, and you can get away with some really solid liqueurs that aren’t too ridicolous. As such, you know you can always rely on us for our recommendation on the higher-end liqueurs and bitters. We say, […]

And so we did! We have an opening night party coming up next week when the show opens, and today’s cocktail will be […]
