Avion Silver Tequila
If you’re like me then you a pretty excited to have HBO’s hit series Entourage back for its final season. If you’re familiar with the shows plot-lines over the last couple of seasons then you’ve assuredly seen the new tequila line that, Jerry Ferrara’s character, Turtle has been helping to distribute across the world on the show. Well, due to the shows crazy popularity and its ability to mix the real world with the fake, HBO advertised Avion free and now they are reaping the rewards of their success. I recently got a chance to sample the, until recently unheard of, tequila and I can certainly say it is actually not bad. I tried the silver and two words come instantly to mind, peppery and spicy. The nose was surprisingly mild considering how potent the brew was. The finish was long and I would really only suggest it as a sipping tequila. Avion is currently available in three incarnations, the Silver, Anejo and the Exposado. All in all it is good but not necessarily great. Even with all its press it’s still a bit difficult to find at most retailers but if you’re in the mood for a truly fiery tequila look no further then you’re favorite online alcohol store.
Price: $40 per bottle
Characteristics: Get ready for some peppery heat
Verdict: Try it but be prepared.
