Looking for a good tequila for someone that knows his tequila. I figure price range in the "same as or a bit higher" than Patron, only I know Patron is played out so I'm not getting that. Suggestions?

Can't help you here. But if you were a man of mezcal (https://www.eater.com/spirits/2015/6/5/8734643/understanding-mezcal-and-its-amazing-ascent), I'd have tons of suggestions (https://www.theguardian.com/travel/2015/oct/31/mezcal-tour-oaxaca-mexico).

That said, I don't think you can wrong with Cuervo Reserva de la Familia (https://48xreb3gy9n71lo1k91t6q9n-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/themes/cuervo/images/cuervo_reserva_bottle.png).

Also for whites, Don Julios are pretty decent.

There is no such thing as good tequila.

I guy I knew from Mexico City had a favourite he swore by. He pulled out a very special bottle at a party once. Dang, I wish I could remember what it was, but that was over ten years ago.

We have a bottle of KAH tequila (http://www.kahtequila.com/en/), it's decent sipping tequila. :up:

Much obliged everyone. Except RWA, that is, who is very wrong.

Oh don't worry. I understand that there are different levels of quality in tequila.

But none of it is ever good if it feels like you're putting your brain on a frying pan.

Indeed. There is only bad tequila, and GREAT tequila.
