All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5–8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.

Score : 92
This Margarita-ready Tequila features mellow vanilla and dried herb aromas. It’s perkier on the tongue, showing spearmint, fennel and jalapeño, plus a vanilla and coconut fade and just enough alcohol punch on the finish.
Score : 94
Though it seems shy in the glass, with its light-gold hue and mild vanilla fragrance, on the palate this añejo is quite bold, with caramel and vanilla drying to leather, baker’s chocolate, cinnamon and a hint of dried fig. Addictive and easy sipping.
Ramonas Reserve Liqueur
Score : 85
Made with añejo Tequila, agave nectar and spices, this viscous liqueur has a bold, sweet, nutty aroma reminiscent of amaretto or pecan liqueur. That nutty sweetness comes through on the palate, but accompanied by a surprising and fiery cayenne pepper singe on the finish.
