My Thoughts:

When we were looking for a house a few years ago, I had a wish list that included a pool, fireplace and lots of closet space.  My husband, on the other hand, only wanted a man cave with bar for himself.  Now, he is not a heavy, but likes being able to experiment with mixed drinks here and there, as well as entertain family and friends when they come to visit.  On holidays and other gatherings at our house, you will usually find the men downstairs, while the women stay upstairs in the living room, having tea and chatting.  So, when we found the house we are in now, we were both excited as it had everything on our wish list.  Fast forward 5 years later and my husband has a full fledged bar in his man cave, and can offer guests a multitude of spirits.  My husband loves getting different types of Tequila from Mexico when his friends and family travel that way on their way to El Salvador, where he is from.  I was surprised when I showed him the three bottles of Partida Anejo that I was sent to review, that he had never sampled this.  And the samples came at a good time as his brother from FL was coming to visit for the recent holiday weekend.  Guess what my husband was serving from his bar -- Partida Anejo.  Everyone who tried the Tequila loved it, and couldn't stop raving about it -- and, heading back down into the basement/man cave for another glass.  I am not usually a Tequila drinker, but after hearing everyone talk about it, I gave it a try.  As the party moved to the deck, so did the Tequila bottles.  What a great ending to a perfect holiday gathering.  The weather was wonderful, as was the company and spirits.

Does your Dad have a man cave or bar, or wish that he did?  Partida Anejo would be a great addition to his collection.  My father loves collecting fine spirits, and would love to receive this set for display.  Thanks to Partida Anejo, shopping for my Dad this Father's Day will be a breeze! :-)

  1. My dad loves this stuff, but I'm not a big fan of tequila, unless it's in margaritas, haha.
