Anyone tried Lunazul Tequila yet?

Apparently a Mexican made Tequila distributed by Heaven Hill, Lunazul Tequila is 100% Agave and pretty darn cheap. I can't find any good reviews about it online, so I was wondering if anyone has tried it yet? I'm thinking about picking up a bottle today, but I don't really want to try something new without knowing anything about it.

  1. I just saw a bottle of Tequila 30-30 today and I was wondering about that as well?

      30-30 is not bad, and I believe is inexpensive.It's great for an everyday tequila, but I wouldn't spend more than $20 for it.If I'm correct the reposado retails around $20 in Tijuana and should be the same here, give or take.Nice bargain tequila, so snatch it up.

    2. Just picked up a bottle for some margaritas. I took a couple shots to start off and it is extremely smooth, almost zero bite, but peppery and flavorful. I strayed from my normal margarita selection (Jimador) to give this a try and I'm happy with it, about $20 for a fifth. Definitely worth a try.

      1. Hey!

        Just ran to the liquor store because I was out of a few things...I LOVE the upper end...V.S.O.P. Cognac, Bombay Sapphire, Patron, etc. I was out of tequila and going for my usual brand, at $45. a pop, when I overheard one of the workers talking to someone about Lunazul Reposado at $18 for 750L....she was pretty well informed so I bought a bottle....she was right! It is just as good as anything else I've tasted....smooth with a peppery could sip it if you wanted with no lime needed!!! It's got my vote. Finally, a premium tequila that is cost effective enough for me to justify using it in a margarita! But it's great on its own...Go ahead 'theginguy' you will not be disappointed.....

        1. I have tried lunazul and it's a decent tequila. Especially good for mixing margaritas and stuff, that would be my recommendation, it's not too great for sipping straight.

          1. For the price, I think it's definitely worth a try. I bought a bottle of the resposado, and have really enjoyed it in El Diablos and Palomas. I used most of it to try making some tequila por me amante; it'll be a couple weeks yet before I know how that went! I'll definitely put it into my home bar rotation.
