Lou gives high marks for Olmeca Altos Plata as both a sipper and a mixer.
Why does good tequila have to be so damn expensive? It doesn’t! Even though there are a variety of tequilas at wide-ranging price points, buying a cheap tequila can feel like a risky proposition for many people.

Today we visited the distillery Pedro Domecq, where they make Tezon, Olmeca Altos, and Olmeca tequilas. I wrote about this distillery before on Alcademics.
Aroma: Grassy agave, ethanol. Citrus, lime specifically and clearly. Tiniest bit of vanilla. Palate: Agave and ethanol, definitely a little hot. A peculiar bitter herb note, and white pepper. I use a lot of it in my cooking and recognize that flavor. A little vanilla bean, very curious. Verdict: Wonderful budget mixer. I think this is definitely mixer but it’s very tasty, just a bit harsh and hot for sipping. I think a little sugar and lime would take the edges off and give you a nice margarita with a good, juicy agave bite. I routinely see this on sale for $17-22 for a bottle, and that’s hard to beat. As it’s opening up, it’s actually developing into a nice tequila, I could see this being a passable sipper with a little time opened up and/or a little bit of ice. Overall, I recommend. Will definitely keep this in the “well” rotation.
