Rating Description

Tier 3
This is a Tier 3 score in the Tequila category. It means critics recommended the spirit but it will be a value brand or have an exotic taste.

Proof66 Notes

Tarantula tequilas are said to be a blend of tradition and technology, made in modern copper stills using traditional brick ovens to roast the agave.

Tarantula Azul tequila is their plata (un-aged) version and then flavored with what they describe as "natural, citrus liqueur." This will create a flavor profile of sweetened lemon/lime, almost like  a traditional Margarita cocktail. It presents a swimming-pool colored blue.

The Tarantula tequila brand is owned and managed by Missouri's McCormick Distilling Company.

(2 out of 5). This is the sort of brand that irritates me to the core, since, along with Jose Cuervo and Sauza, it tarnishes the reputation of a spirit that has so much potential. First of all, dyeing this spirit blue is a gimmick that's just as silly as putting larvae in bottles of mezcal. Plus, it's only 35% alcohol. It's really a shame that Mexico doesn't have more strict regulations of what can be called tequila. As for the juice itself- it's palatable, and that's the most I can say. Doesn't rank with the worst liquors I've had, but doesn't deserve to be called tequila! You can get 100% agave tequila for cheaper. Also, I'm not sure about the average price, but I'm quite sure it's lower than the $28 listed (not saying you should buy it, just trying to be accurate).
