Cazadores Tequila

NOM: 1487

Distillery: Bacardi and Compañia, S.A. de C.V.

Region: Los Altos (Highlands)

Cazadores tequila has become a staple brand in Mexico. With its distinctive deer logo and practical marketing approach (fair product at a fair price), Cazadores stands as a go-to tequila for budget-conscious aficionados.

Bacardi and Compañia, the distillery in charge of production, also owns Corzo tequila, a high-end brand comparable in price and quality to Don Julio and Herradura.

How do we recognize Cazadores tequila?

That's right, Cazadores is "the one with the deer on it".

Why should one consider buying Cazadores? Let’s face it. With the way the global economy’s turning out we‘d all do well to watch how we spend our money. If you like to indulge in tequila (and you should, why else would you be reading this?) then brands like Cazadores acquire a whole new dimension.

What brands does Cazadores’ compete against? Main rival brands include 1800 tequila, El Jimador, and Hornitos. Which should you buy? Keep reading!

Cazadores Blanco

Type: 100% blue agave.

Aging: no aging.

Price range: $ 25-35 (750 ml)

Cazadores Blanco is an OK tequila. The citrus and pepper notes come through well. The agave taste, however, takes much longer to come out. It also holds a medium burn in the end too.

I prefer tequilas that go down nice and smooth and this one’s a bit pricey for the value. Still a decent buy.

Cazadores Reposado

Type: 100% blue agave.

Aging: 2 months in American white oak barrels.

Price range: $ 25-35 (750 ml)

This reposado is the most sold Cazadores tequila in the market (reposados tend to sell best). Strong alcohol bite, firm vanilla flavor… very straightforward tequila.

If you find it for $25, buy it. Anything higher than that means you should go for Don Julio or Herradura.

Cazadores Anejo

Type: 100% blue agave.

Aging: 12 months in American white oak barrels.

Price range: $ 30-40 (750 ml)

Wood, wood, wood… that’s all I get from this anejo. And it’s not that cheap either. A real disappointment, Cazadores Anejo fails to deliver.

Summing things up...

Cazadores Reposado for strong shooters and sipping, Blanco for everyday use, and Anejo to be avoided at all costs. Follow these general rules and your Cazadores experience will rock!
