Alexander Perez and Mike Morales from Tequila Aficionado do a recap on the historic CATA that took place at the NM (New Mexico) International Intimate Tequila Tasting that took place July 22, 2011.

Find out more about M.A. “Mike” Morales’ experiences and efforts in tequila education at www.TequilaJournalist.com

Organized by Mike Morales, the NMIITT is an official “Cata de Tequila” or tequila judging held under the guidelines of the American Academy of Tequila and/or the Mexican Academy of Tequila.  The “Catadores”, or judges blind taste a series of tequilas by class (Blanco, Reposado, Anejo, and Extra Anejo) having no knowledge of name or distilleries participating.  Each tequila is scored on its own merit of sight, smell, and taste then rated on a twenty-point scale.

The event was held at Nativo Lodge over a full weekend, where the judges first gathered in a private room for the Cata.  The following day a public tasing was held along with the announcement of the winners in each catatgory.  ~ Forbes Magazine

Sipping off the Cuff: Cuestion Tequila #1

Cuestion Tequila, Part 1

Alex Perez and Mike Morales of Tequila Aficionado.com taste and talk about Cuestion Tequila.

Monday Madness

Monday Madness was created as a blooper by-product of our production process for the Tequila Aficionado exclusive video program, Sipping off the Cuff. When M.A. “Mike” Morales and Alexander “Alex” Perez get together, whether in person or via Skype, to review tequilas for Sipping off the Cuff, something silly is bound to happen.  Rather than present these clips with their reviews, we chose to respect serious viewers’ time and get right to business with each SOTC episode to keep them at ten minutes or less.  The outtakes are often funny and show our silly side, so we chose to share them with you for your amusement, as well as ours, in our Monday Madness video feature.  Monday Madness is the evidence of how very much fun we have doing what we love here at Tequila Aficionado Media.
