Deleon Diamante Blanco Tequila 750ml (Elsewhere $130)
Deleon Diamante is being hailed as the new bench mark for Blanco tequila, the Deleon Diamante is in a class of its own. High altitude agave and very old pinas create a rare freshness of fruit and depth of flavor. Completed in an ornately designed bottle, the Diamante has few rivals. 40% abv/80 proof. "While sipping silver tequila is unheard of," write the folks at De Leon, "with [the Diamonte] it has become the benchmark. We recommend the Diamante's smooth taste be savored neat, on the rocks, or as the perfect base for the highest quality cocktails."
