Re: Los Angeles, CA Area
Today after some research (thanks to El Tesoro site) I found a gem of a wine and spirit store on the Glendale/Atwater border.
Topline Wine & Spirit CO
4718 San Fernando Road, Glendale, CA 91204
El Tesoro Platinum for 39 bux
Penca Azul Blanco for 49 bux (750 ml!)
7 Leguas for 38 bux
Its not a typical liquor store, its in an industrial park without much fanfare, I passed it twice before seeing.
there selection is no comparison to Ramirez, but they have a great top shelf tequila selection, Don Valente Licorice line, 7 Leguas, Purasangre, just to name a few. What Im saying is they dont carry the crappy lines. About 30 different lines of all the good stuff at good prices.
Anyway, I bought the Penca Azul blanco, it put me over budget, but they have great prices.
Tequila, el espíritu de mexico, mi quierido.
