Ocho Tequila Anejo or Reposado is also very good. This is sipping tequila, not to be mixed. I find most tequila aficionados avoid the silver tequilas.

I don't drink tequila often, but when I do...........
I don't care for for mixed anything. I like a quality that begs to be sipped. There are more than one, and I am not picky. I do have preferences, however after the first couple drinks, I'm easy to please. Tequila and I have some interesting history (operative word; HISTORY). I'll save it for a BT party.

That’s my old brother in laws company Casa Dragones. People sure seem to like it. It’s popular when we serve it.

I got so sick on tequila in college I have never been able to drink it again.

I got so sick on tequila while on a road trip, in my early twenties, I made it a very personal vendetta to conquer. It would take 10 years, blood and tears. Now, I just sip the top shelf on special occasions, with special friends. It is a great treat, when treated right.

I cannot recommend a brand per se. But - to me a - a good 100% blue agave is well worth the price. I know some tequila folk that are fine with good gold tequila. I'll recommend the clear /blue.

Like any good liquor - if it's good on the rocks, it';s good.....

I believe "Dragones" alludes to the French Dragoons quartered around Arenal, Jalisco during Maximilian's ill-fated reign. Arenal was the birthplace of Tequila, and there, the Orendain distillery was one of the main competitors to Sauza. As a child in the '50's we spent weekends there, as guests of the Orendains and the Faviers, French expats living in Guadalajara.
I had a chance to taste Mezcal, the base material for all Tequila, and confirmed the ordinary wisdom that those potions were the province of the low, illiterate class. In time, I became fond of the reasonably-priced Tequila Herradura (reposado), having risen to a somewhat more exalted lower middle class. When my guests merit, I will break out my small reserve of Don Porfidio, somewhat amused that I paid so much for what I know is the same old refined Mezcal in a fancy bottle.
The fact that Tequila has risen to such world-class levels in the spirits industry is true homage to brilliant marketing.

My current faves in order left to right. The 1800 is for Margis.

The Casino Azul seems to be well liked and has a cool bottle with a rose inside. Nice gift.

I don’t drink often so I prefer GOOD stuff when I do. Good tequila is a totally different experience vs. most folks’ memorable Cuervo experience. I have never found anyone who doesn’t appreciate the ‘42 and if you are ever in Puerto Vallarta that Almond Mama Lucia is a party fave, even with non-drinkers.

For drinking, don’t forget your caballito (hollowed out bull’s horn) with your name and address on it so you can remember who you are and find your way home tomorrow. :D

I recall about 20 years ago thinking that Patron Silver was such a very extravagant purchase...oh my how times have changed. At $35 a bottle now at Total Wine, and compared to these offerings, it's looking like a total bargain!! :D

That was a bottle of Ocho Reposado consumed during Oshkosh 2012. Here are 2 pictures of next morning after finishing a bottle of tequila with 3 good friends (Neil Keller, PMC and Jim Swanson) in one night. The universe rewards those who drink Tequila!

Note: The universe may not reward those camping around the Tequila drinkers, we stayed up a bit late that night!

I like most of the "Ultra" or Platinum tequila's

They are older but clear, So they have the smoothness of a 10 year but not as smoky. Silver's are one year and the harshest to me. Anejo is 10 year but sometimes a little heavy for me. So the Ultras and Platinums are a good balance.

Everyone has their own taste but I have spent a lot of time and money to try everything out there, hey if you are going to do something do it right LOL

Here ya go:

Tequila Silver - Blanco - Plata - White - Platinum
This is the Blue Agave spirit in its purest form. It is clear and typically un-aged, where the true flavors and the intensity of the Agave are present, as well as the natural sweetness. It can be bottled directly after distillation, or stored in stainless steel tanks to settle for up to 4 weeks. There are some Blanco products that are aged for up to 2 months to provide a smoother or "Suave" spirit.

Tequila Reposado
A Reposado Tequila is the first stage of "rested and aged". The Tequila is aged in wood barrels or storage tanks between 2 months and 11 months. The spirit takes on a golden hue and the taste becomes a good balance between the Agave and wood flavors. Many different types of wood barrels are used for aging, with the most common being American or French oak. Some Tequilas are aged in used bourbon / whiskey, cognac, or wine barrels, and will inherit unique flavors from the previous spirit.

Reposado Tequilas are also referred to as "rested" and "aged".

Tequila Añejo (extra aged)
After aging for at least one year, Tequila can then be classified as an "Añejo". The distillers are required to age Añejo Tequila in barrels that do not exceed 600 liters. This aging process darkens the Tequila to an Amber color, and the flavor can become smoother, richer, and more complex.

Añejo Tequilas are also referred to as "aged" and "extra-aged".

Tequila Extra Añejo (ultra aged)
A new classification added in the summer of 2006, labeling any Tequila aged more than 3 years, an "Extra Añejo". Following the same rule as an "Añejo", the distillers must age the spirit in barrels or containers with a maximum capacity of 600 liters. With this extended amount of aging, the Tequila becomes much darker, more of a Mahogany color, and is so rich that it becomes difficult to distinguish it from other quality aged spirits. After the aging process, the alcohol content must be diluted by adding distilled water. These Extra Añejo’s are extremely smooth and complex.
