Our Experience of Tequila & Mezcal Tasting @ Hotel Nikko !

Well, we when for Tequila and Mezcal tasting at Bentley’s Pub in Hotel Nikko! I never knew that there’s a pub in Nikko Hotel till I when for this event ! And I never heard of the word Mezcal before thou! With 3 different tequilas and 4 types of Mezcal plus delightful Mexican snacks to enjoy ! Its theme with Mexico. A Festival of Flavours !!

This is one of the Tequila Tizoc. With just a sipped, your definitely gonna be hot all night long! its totally different with those we drank before. it doesn’t taste like those Tequila Pop we have in the club with salt and lime! this taste so strong and bold! And its all the way from Mexico!

That night, we were given the opportuity to taste 3 types of tequila :-

1) Blanco

2) Repesado

3) Anejo

And this is Mezcal which the aroma smell like wood/leather. Well it taste very bitter and we had diff type of Mezcal that night which ranging of Mezcal of Espadin Maguey (9-12 years old), Mezcal of Wild Bicuixe Maguey (12 to 15 years) and Mezcal of Wild Tobasiche (12 to 15 years), Mexicano (13 to 16 years) and Bicuixe Maguey (12 to 15 years)

We were quite fortunate as well cause this guy – Mr. Kevin Tapia, one of the best somelier from Mexico was there to taught on how to taste Tequila and Mezcal !Its not about drinking but to feel it and taste the drinks. One of the tips on how to see if the tequila is real?? “You need to shake on the bottles and if the bubbles/soap is more, the better it is of the quality of the Tequila” !!

Mr. Kevin also taught us to put a bit Tequila on the hand and scrub on both hands for few seconds and smell it! This is where the leather or wood smell came from especially on the Mezcal!

Its a great experience for us on that day. And the price per person is only RM80++ !! you got to drink and got to learn how to drink it ! Faboulous aren’t ??

That’s not all… we also bring back home a wine class of Mexico as a  souvenir!! ^^
