    Default Highlands vs. Lowlands

    Highlands agave tends to grow larger and mature more slowly thereby producing sweeter, fruity tequila; though many say the flavor can be reminiscent of "wet cement". Lowlands agave is usually drier, rounder and has more earthy, vegetal and woody flavors.

    Please post all highlands and lowlands tequilas that you are aware of so we can all come back here for easy referencing.

    Isn't Fortaleza a lowlands tequila? Wait, I guess I don't have a favorite growing region. My top favorites are from both! I'd like to see a definitive reference listing that quickly shows which region a tequila comes from.

    Looking at the list I'm going to have to say I'm partial to the lowlands, but I like my Martinis painfully dry, my fruit exceedingly sour and my women equally as bitter so go figure.

    Also keep in mind that some Tequilas buy their agave where ever the best price is so this can cloud the lines a bit.

    My top five consists of two lowlands and three highlands...

    Fortaleza - Low
    El Tesoro - High
    Penca Azul - Low
    3 Amigos - High
    Chinaco -High

    I think it all depends on what flavor Im seeking at that moment.
    Tequila, el espíritu de mexico, mi quierido.

    Isn't Penca Azul highlands? Their agave is grown in Los Altos. If that's true, you're pretty much a highlands man, like me.
