Casa Noble Añejo


As the week winds down we hit the third of the Casa Noble examinations. (To be clear, however, this isn’t all of what Casa Noble has to offer. They have a whole line of single barrel offerings as well that we haven’t managed to get our glommy mitts on yet.) Finally, we hit the añejo – […]

Ethereal


We’re mixing with the reposado Casa Noble today, so when mixing with a heavier tequila (or any heavier liquor) it’s best to remember that balance is the key. The Ethereal takes some of the sweeter notes and turns this into a borderline dessert cocktail, but it’s salvage by the quinine tang of the tonic. 3 […]

Casa Noble Reposado


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.
