Just as Casa Noble calls their fine tequila “The One”, this episode is completely worthy of being named THE ONE NOT TO MISS! Lippy welcomes special guest, David Yan – Marketing Director for Casa Noble Mexico. The two of them break down the flavors, history, and creation process for just about EVERY Casa Noble product ever made!
Watch in rapt attention as Th’ Lip puts his treasure bottles on display and methodically opens each one to compare it to the current line of Casa Noble products. How does the current stuff rate? Is there a “future treasure bottle” in the current product line? Will Lippy keep his palate “straight” after so many tastes? An epic tequila line deserves some epic time to break it all down. And this episode IS an epic 2 HOURS! Not a speck of filler, though. Enjoy and sip along!
*yawn* It was a lazy day in the Mighty Man-Cave, so Th’ Lip decided to choose this episode’s tequila brand in accordance with his overall feeling after the big Holiday Season. Introducing Manana tequila: The lazy, hammock-swinging, kinda sleepy, agave juice that’s just right for kickin’ back!
Manana is yet ANOTHER tequila brand from the mighty NOM (distillery) 1414, home to many of Lippy’s favorites like, Buscadores, Yeyo, Muchote, Viva Mexico, and others. How will Manana differentiate itself from these other “sister” brands? Or WILL it? Watch and see!
Get out the pruning shears and make sure the lawn bags are emptied! This is gonna be one GRASSY tasting event, Friends! Presenting Meloza tequila, perhaps the most VEGETAL and “green” tasting blanco currently on the market.
In this omnibus Meloza tasting (from blanco to extra anejo!), Th’ Lip walks his palate through the 4 ages of Meloza looking for that vegetal goodness to be present throughout the product line. Will he find a “Harvester Heaven”, or a “Hackneyed Hell”? Watch and be surprised at how it all shakes out!
How long can one King reign, friends? In this harrowing taste-off our YEAR-LONG CHAMPION, El Ultimo Agave goes head to head with upstart challenger, Hacienda Vieja. Lately the EUA repo has been annoying Th’ Lip with its over-oaked spiciness. How will it fare against a brand with some great credibility? (Hacienda Vieja is made by the same family who originally distilled the mighty Cazadores brand!)
Chinaco – Blanco, Reposado, Anejo & “Negro”
Get ready to make some history, people! In this episode Lippy runs down the flavor profiles of one of the most respected and historic gourmet tequila brands on the market: Chinaco – the mighty! As perhaps the FIRST gourmet tequila to be introduced in the US (mid-80’s) this brand has seen a lot of competition come and go, yet it remains a top contender for Best of Category in all ages and expressions.
