K&L Notes

We are sad to see the 86 Company go, but we're glad to help them move through the last of their product. When industry giant Brown Forman acquired Ford's Gin, they decided to not buy the rum, tequila, and vodka portion of the 86 Co lineup. The end result of that transaction is we were able to help move the remainder of this wonderful brand at insanely low prices. Built by bartenders for bartenders - these are the perfect staples to stock up on for all your mixing needs before they become extinct. The perfect mixing tequila developed by the world's best bartenders with some of the world's greatest tequileros, the Vivanco family. This ultra high-quality blanco is designed to capture the fresh, full flavor of agave without any of the sweetness that so many other brands are after. That's because it was specifically designed to go in your drink, so they haven't adulterated it with glycerin or any other type of additive, nor have they over-oxygenated or adjusted the product in any way. This dry finish is perfect for cocktails because you can always add more sugar, but you can't take it out once it's in there. This is a must-have for any home cocktail maestro.

Peppery bold scents meld with gently fruity agave notes. There are light caramel flavors belying the fact that this is a Blanco Tequila. It's got nice citrus acidity and honey tones that make for a well-balanced spirit. Pour it on the rocks and add tonic for refreshing summer beverage.

The inexpensive tequilas are normally that way for a reason, as they need a lot of cocktail ingredients to cover up their mediocre taste. This is not the case with the 86 Co Cabeza Tequila. This is the ultimate cocktail tequila, though I wouldn't be opposed to serving it on its own. Super bright and fresh with tons of citrus notes on the nose, this has margarita written all over it. The mouthfeel is quite creamy and a little rich, with nice weight and a slightly spicy end. I wish this one was hanging around longer, but I will definitely enjoy it while it lasts.

For me this is a classic Blanco. The nose has citrus notes and is expressive and inviting. In the mouth it is soft and easy, almost fruity, with citrus flavors dominating and nice subtle spice undertones. It will drink well alone and will go great in cocktails.

When opportunity knocks, open the door! Typically 30 bucks (and a screaming deal at that) The Cabeza Tequila from the 86 Co will be going out of business, but will always be in style. A true classic - no sugar, no additives, just pure agave flavor made by a master. Bright agave fruit combines with an expressive cracked pepper bite to stand out just right in any tequila cocktail. While you don't have the glycerol texture you find in many tequilas today, it does have a very smooth mouthfeel, but without any of the added sweetness. Just squeeze a lime, drop in some Cointreau, and stir up your best house margaritas until you run out of this incredible tequila. Then wish you bought more, cause you won't see Cabeza again and you'll never find a tequila of this quality for $20 anywhere else.
