1921 Tequila Cream http://www.tequila.net/media/reviews/photos/thumbnail/350x350s/19/65/15/86_tequila-1921-crema_1319914312.jpg Hot
We just got our first bottle from our recent trip to Mexico. It is far better than Bailey's. While we were tasting other tequilas, our host mixed half and half with another tequila licor (it was Licor de Vanilla) and it was delicious! We should have bought a few more bottles to bring home - at $19 a pop, it is well worth it!
My wife and I finally got around to trying this over the holidays and now we can't get enough of it. I hadn't ever tried any other cream liqueurs, so I don't have anything to compare it to, but it is fantastic. The hints of coffee, chocolate, butter, cinnamon with a backround of agave are a wonderful combination. Who cares if it may be fattening, it's worth it.
I was served 1921 Tequila Crema at Malo this past Friday. It was served on the rocks as an after-dinner treat. This stuff drinks like dessert. It is smooth, sweet, creamy - delicious. If you are a fan of Kahlua or Bailey's and you also love tequila, I can all but assure that you will thoroughly enjoy 1921 Tequila Crema. I'm adding it to my bar as soon as I can find a bottle.
It's difficult to review a cream with the standard catagories so I just rated it a 90 across the board (what I would rate a very good tequila). The only exceptions were for smoothness and Presentation with I think are both fantastic on this bottle.
I am normally not a big fan of any kind of cream liquor, but I fell in love with this stuff. For me it's not something you have a lot of but it makes a very nice late night drink when poured on the rocks. Highly recommended to at least serve cold. Huge cinnamon overtones.
It must be stated this is more like a Baileys, Kahlua, or rompope than it is like an Agavero (which is more clear).
I can see lots of options in making drinks with this.
This is made with their 100% agave blanco tequila (makes up 30% of the creme).
A delightful liqueur with tequila, coffee and cream. Try mixing up a vanilla shake with a shot or 2 of 1921 creme. Ohhhhhhh yummy!
Not a big fan of sweet but it is good Tequila liquor, needs a bit more... I don't know just disappears after a few seconds.
