Notes: This tequila is produced on the estate Agua Escondido in the village Zapotlanejo,Jalisco, the heart of tequila country. This is the youngest expression another slightly older expression the Dos Lunas Reposado and a Dos Lunas Anejo. They use a natural yeast which can take up to five times longer to ferment than some in use by other tequila makers.
Appearance: Crystal clear, lovely body. On swirling, it leaves a very light coating on the glass which then forms some legs which then leave a constellation of droplets on the sides of the nosing glass.
First Impression: Has a unmistakable aromatic hallmarks of a good tequila: salty, sweet brine, savory, citrusy thai-lime leaves.
Taste: Oily wonderful body. Savory, like a sweet olive brine and a thai lime dish with salt -Agave but not oak woody notes (probably a by product of the extended fermentation - a delicious new taste). Dry but savory ending, leaving you wanting more.
Finish is medium long, very smooth.
Drinks: Actually very nice on its own- sip it don't shoot it. One of the few Silver Tequilas you can put in a snifter. Wonderful margaritas, be sure to use fresh juice and Grand Marnier - anything less would be an insult to the tequila and a waste.
Cigars: An Ashton, or Credo, Connecticut shade wrapper.
Final Thoughts: Delicious, smooth, and bracing.
Bottle: Unlike a lot of the competition, Dos Lunas does not use recycled glass and hand blown bottle (that also weigh a ton but can be very fragile at the same time). Some people have remarked that it looks like a bottle of shampoo (which could be useful in some situations) but it is a striking contrast to the rest of the tequila shelf in the liquor store or in your bar.
Cork took a few seconds to figure out (you must pull directly but gently straight up to open). Frosted with clear window to a picture of Blue Weber Agave make s for a striking presentation. Far from the rustic look others are trying.

Somewhat brief information after a beginning that alternates slow and frenetic. Well laid out, if a trifle busy. Some links (such as product information) do not work.
