Superstar owned tequilas have grow to be fairly widespread in recent times with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson representing Teremana, George Clooney representing Casamigos (although he has since bought it), AC/DC representing Thunderstruck, and lots of extra. Effectively, right here come one other: Casa Del Sol tequila is co-owned by actress Eva Longoria of daytime cleaning soap opera and Determined Housewives fame.

Past its movie star affiliation, Casa Del Sol Tequila does have a particular factor to its manufacturing that deserves consideration. The aged expressions don’t spend time in ex-bourbon casks, as is commonest for tequila. As an alternative, Casa Del Sol is aged in French oak and ex-Cognac barrels.

Immediately we are attempting the Blanco and the Reposado expressions. There’s additionally an Añejo expression which we didn’t obtain for tasting.

Each are 80 proof. NOM 1460.

Casa Del Sol Tequila Blanco – This 100% Blue Weber agave tequila is crystal clear, like most blancos, however on the nostril and palate, I discover pronounced vanilla notes, which generally end result from time spent in oak. I’m guessing it spent a while in barrels and was then filtered to clear. The tequila moreover reveals a flowery, fragrance word, which can be widespread with French Oak in addition to some somewhat disagreeable candy bubblegum parts. Herbaceous agave will be discovered behind these stronger notes, however it’s pretty effectively hidden, and a peppery end is available in to shut the expertise. If I attempted this with my eyes closed, I’d assume it was a reposado, however its sweetness and bubblegum character are off-putting. At this value level, I anticipated extra. C / $60

Casa Del Sol Tequila Reposado – Aged for at least 4 months, this reposado is much like the blanco however reveals extra vanilla and fragrance on the nostril and palate in addition to even sweeter bubblegum notes. It’s fairly cloying. It is a tequila for those that don’t like tequila however somewhat desire a sweeter, much less herbaceous liqueur. C- / $70
