Hacienda Vieja tequila...opinions?

Veggo | Jun 7, 2008 06:53 PM

I am busy making austerity adjustments to my F& B budget. Months ago I substituted Cazadores reposado ($28) for my old-habits-die-hard Herradura reposado ($45). Today I noticed and bought a Hacienda Vieja reposado for $18 that claims to be 100% agave, from Jalisco, and aged in white oak for 90 days. I drink reposados neat, with a side of homemade sangrita.
For the price, it tastes surprisingly good. I had never heard of it. There are so few 100% agaves under $30, and $18 seems too good to be true. Anyone have any information about the brand, or an opinion?
