Lat year I received a bottle of " Casa Dragones" it is the smoothest silver I have ever tasted. Its not cheap $225.00 US numbered bottle looks like a decanter and comes with a crystal bottle stop. Most of the guys I work with in Mexico drink Don Julio

Herradura Anejo is very nice. My next choice would be Cabo Wabo Anejo. Or a Reposado in either is not quite as expensive, but very good. For day to day Tequila Espolon in any type is nice.

Milagro is a solid Tequila for the price.

Don Julio Real. Bit more pricey.

This shop has a great selection and they ship. My favorite is Cava de Oro Extra Anjeo, has a sweeter taste, sip it straight.

Patron is owned by Paul Mitchel Hair Products.

That's my opinion on that.

Corralejos is a nice medium expensive bottle that is surprisingly sippable.

Julio 42 make sure you get a modern bottle. They had a 3 year problem where the bottling plant manager switched out the good stuff for the bad, and if you ever hear about people trying it about 5 years back and saying it was shit, that's why.

The real stuff is REALLY good.

Also, for whatever reason, sipping tequila does not give the hangovers shit tequila (Patron) does.

I am a big fan of Chinaco.

But, any good Tequila, 100% Agave, should be sipped like a good Scotch or Whiskey.

Got to make it before too long
I can't take this very much longer
I'm stranded in the sleet and rain
Don't think I'm ever gonna make it home again.

This! Casa Dragones makes the finest tequila around. I lived in Mexico for several years, and Casa Dragones Joven was my favorite by a long stretch.

Well, I got some Corzo Repasado
A Tequila expert went through all the different ones there, with my list from you all.
This one was also priced good. Some were just to expensive for sipping on Christmas breakfast with Bangers n Mash.

Make sure you add a side of Sangrita for breakfast.
Bangers N Mash? somewhere in the highlands on a cold misty Christmas morning? Have a Merry!

Caza azul definitely gave a smile. But, he was going through quickly explaining flavors, barrel charring, regions etc.

I've always been a fan of Patron and vehemently opposed to Joe Crow (Jose Cuervo)

That said, Jose Cuervo makes a "Reserva de la Familia" (Family Reserve) tequila that is no shit better than Patron. Wow, that is world class tequila. Makes every other tequila taste like pure crap.

I think it should also be mentioned that if you ever do get a bottle of really good sipping tequila, it pretty much ruins regular tequila for you.

I literally cannot buy a bottle that is less than $30 bucks now because otherwise it tastes like turpentine.

My go to drink when out is either a tequila or vodka on this rocks. Beer and me just don't get along anymore.

Don Julio and Patron suffice as very few dive and sports bars stock anything better. I still prefer Riazul though. Slightly spicy sweet and great over ice. Any decent tequila will sour you permanently from Jose and the like.

Tequila is Spanish for, "I'm OK with being surprised where I wake up".

The winter time scenario of this can really suck! I know this for real, but I was a young lad then!
