Before it was chic for so many celebrities to own their own line of tequila, Vince Neil started Tres Rios in 2007. And while I don't know the entire story behind it, I at least know that he didn't go to one of the contract giants to just bottle something and slap a name on it. He went to NOM 1482, which is a smaller distillery. I've never sampled anything from 1482, so this will be fun.

Price: $35-40/bottle

Aroma: A crisp and fruity agave aroma. Just a hint of spice as well. Interesting.

Initial Taste: The agave and spice notes are at the forefront. There's just a hint of earth there as well.

Body: Fairly thin body overall. The spice notes are still there with a nice peppery agave punch. The sweetness has faded, allowing the earthy notes to come forward a bit.

Finish: Fades away quickly, but has some nice green agave elements and pepper.

Overall, this is a pretty solid tequila. Thought was put into what went in the bottle rather than just who would be promoting it. Solid stuff for the price and a definite buy if you can get it on clearance. Rock on, Vince!
