The First Must-Buy Bottle of 2017

I'll have to interrupt the current Australia narative to bring you news of a more important story, one that's actually in stock rather than conceptual. While I'm often excited by a number of the spirits we're able to feature at K&L, I'm also a curator who understands that there are different strokes for different folks. Not everything I write about or feature is meant for everyone. Here, however, is a clear cut case of spirits mastery that represents the first "must-buy" bottle of the year in the K&L booze department: a blanco tequila from Enrique Fonseca, bottled under the Fuenteseca label (as our previous projects have been done), that represents the highest possible quality expression of the style I've yet to taste. I don't care who you are or what you normally drink, you need this bottle (as long as you like tequila). What's perhaps even more exciting, however, is that the fact that it represents everything I've come to understand about the potential of agave spirits over the last few years: that tequila and mezcal are really much more like wine than whiskey. What do I mean by that? Have a look at the the full story over here at On the Trail. That should illuminate and intrigue you further.

Or just buy a bottle now if you want. But you're missing out on the story of the year for white spirits if you skip the logistics.
