Kendall Jenner’s possession of 818 Tequila is an comprehensible turnoff for a lot of drinkers and an indication that celebriquila has lastly reached a tipping level… or so I assumed, not less than, till 818 began profitable a bunch of awards, together with the highest spot in a blind tasting of celebrity-owned tequilas (which, admittedly, will not be the best of bars to succeed in).

Nonetheless, I used to be curious, so figured we should always put 818 via the Drinkhacker wringer. Whereas an anejo is obtainable, solely the blanco and reposado are reviewed right here.

Each are 80 proof. NOM 1607.

818 Tequila Blanco – “Rested in oak barrels for a recent vanilla roundness,” an uncommon step for a blanco — although this has apparently been filtered to take away any remaining shade. Very candy on the nostril; the “vanilla roundness” is entrance and heart, alongside pastry cream and a few strawberry notes. The one the barest trace of agave right here, a transparent transfer to appease KUWTK followers who may be postpone by a punchy, herbaceous blanco. The palate follows go well with: Creamy, with plenty of vanilla and extra purple berry notes. A tinge of earthy greenery on the end is about as gentle as might be. There’s nothing actually incorrect with it because it stands, but it surely doesn’t style very similar to tequila. If you happen to instructed me this was a vanilla-flavored vodka I might have believed you. B- / $50 [BUY IT NOW FROM CASKERS]

818 Tequila Reposado – Aged a minimal of two months in American and French oak barrels. Once more fairly candy on the nostril, however with a transparent chocolate observe that provides a bit extra nuance to the vanilla bomb of the blanco. That cocoa character continues to the palate, which layers in some cinnamon notes to supply a Mexican chocolate really feel, although once more it feels closely dosed with heaping spoonsful of brown sugar. The end is as candy or sweeter than the blanco, although not less than the cocoa-dusted barrel affect evokes one thing a bit extra thrilling and off the crushed path.
