Costco Tequila: Cooking With Color Product Reviews

Cooking with color Costco Tequila Review

Continuing the “Stanning” Costco series at Cooking with Color, allow me to introduce – or suggest – to you some Costco tequila to complement your evenings and gatherings.

At Costco, three tequilas will more than often be in your sight. The Kirkland Signature Tequila Anejo, the Clase Azul Tequila, and the 8-pack patron tequila. They are all unique in their own regard, and by the end of this, you’ll have some more intel on whether or not to act on your instincts and buy them.

Let’s get into it.

Costco Tequila Anejo by Kirkland

Kirkland is Costco’s own brand, so it’s not a surprise if their products are literally in every corner of the store. With Tequila, you can multiply that probability times three. Kirkland offers Silver, Anejo, and Reposado. Here, I’ll only cover the Anejo and save the other two for a later blog – no particular reason here, just a preference.

So, the Costco tequila Anejo by Kirkland is amber-colored with a coconutty and baking spice aroma. It comes in a great-looking bottle, and the aroma is quite enjoyable. It’s the flavor where people have mixed feelings.

On paper, it has the butterscotch flavor to make it a great desert-style Anejo that is not “that sweet”. If you dial your taste buds to eleven, you can actually feel the remainders of the oak barrels used for aging. The caramel and vanilla flavors will assist the oak presence.

However, those who describe it as a vanilla glycerine bomb aren’t wrong either. It does have additive flavors. Some people have even said that it’s a cup of sugar that smells like Tequila. So, that not “too sweet” label doesn’t really have any ground.

Still, it does give you the bourbon feels, and that’s a huge selling point – but not the biggest. The biggest selling point is the value for money. Almost everyone agrees that you will be getting quality tequila at a bargain. Priced at $22, it is far better than a lot of others that cost significantly more and come in smaller bottles.

Overall, the Costco Tequila Anejo gets the Hipstafood rating of 6.5/10!

Clase Azul Tequila

I’ll say it right away. This one is all about the bottle design. I think only collectors or people who’d want to have a classically fancy-looking bottle on their shelf would be most inclined to get this one.

The one I am talking about is the Clase Azul Reposado. In two words, I’d describe it as sweet and smooth – like a lot sweet with artificial flavors. A lot of people, like me, don’t like the fact that this one goes through a defuser in the production process. It is fair that the manufacturers have to use a diffuser for mass production, but it really takes out the soul of the Tequila.

However, despite that, it’s not as bad as you’d think. I’d even go ahead and say that it tastes quite nice and feels pleasant to drink. It’s not an unpopular drink.

The makers do hint that their target audience is the one that doesn’t usually enjoy the conventional Tequila. They prefer the sweetness. In other words, they have prioritized being different than being better. In that case, like Tom Holland,  I’d say, “Alright, fair dudes.”

Overall, I think it is good for people that are just beginning tequila drinking. It does seem like the proper way to build up to the conventional and natural stuff.

It’ll cost you $135.99 for the reposado bottle. Again, I think the price tag is really for the bottle and the aesthetics you get for it. So, keep that in mind as I recommend it to you.

With that being said, I’d give Clase Azul tequila Costco a Hipstafood rating of 7/10!

Patron Tequila

Anejo Patron Tequila

I’ve saved the best for the last. Costco offers you an 8-pack of mini tequilas with four different flavors. For me, that’s already the most intriguing product in the liquor section. But wait till you hear the price tag. You’ll really appreciate having Costco stores around.

The 8-pack patron tequila Costco gives you two bottles of silver, two bottles of Reposado, two bottles of Anejo, and two bottles of XO café.

The bottles can be described as rich, exquisite, and even “Cute”. They look like potion cups a wizard would have. What I am trying to say is that patron tequila Costco nails it with the presentation.

As for the flavor, patron silver is quite common, and it will be what you expect. The Anejo gets aged for 12 months in oak barrels, the Reposado gets aged in the same way but for two months, and finally, the Xo café is a coffee liquor.

Drink them as-is, make margaritas, or give them as gifts; you’ll find this a great deal. And that’s not entirely because of the range it provides; it is the price. The 8-pack at Costco sells for just $30.

I can agree that they might not be the best in terms of taste, but when you look at the price tag, it is one of the best value of money products at Costco.

Overall, the Patron tequila Costco gets a Hipstafood rating of 8.5/10!
