Avion had just launched when it was featured on Entourage and there was a need to fill the demand of people wanting to buy this tequila. Oprah chose Avion Espresso as part of her O-List. Bloomberg did a segment on the growth of Avion. This tequila has really leap forward. As a fan of the show and of tequila, I knew I needed to try it.
Voted the "World's Best Tasting Tequila" in 2012, Avion is sweet and crisp with hints of pineapple and grapefruit. Typical of the highland tequilas, it also has that black pepper finish. I thought it was smooth enough to not need any citrus (and I never use the salt training wheels) but the citrus wasn't necessary. I can fully admit that mostly myself, with a little sharing between my husband and brother-in-law, we polished off a bottle in an evening. Truth is I had very minimal hangover the next day. All it took was a little coffee and I was ready to do it all again! We had another brand of tequila that night as well to compare - there was no comparison. Avion won us over instantly.
