1800 Select Silver is a well-rounded silver tequila with the extra spark of a higher proof than its counterparts. The crystal tequila is distilled twice and blended with a small amount of aged tequila, which adds a smoothness that separates it from the average blanco. It is a nice change of pace for the premium tequila market and one that tequila connoisseurs should be able to appreciate for its unique qualities. However, I can also see this becoming a tequila shot that gets out of control. That higher proof is appealing for the party crowd, but one that should be respected for what it is: a potent libation. Obviously, slamming two shots of 100 proof is not the same as two shots of 80 proof and even in mixed drinks one drink too many is really one too many.
