    Over my many years going to Mexico, I have enjoyed many, many margaritas. To Kill time while my wife was flea market negotiating, I started doing tequila tasting in the little shops - first out of curiosity, but then, I started to appreciate there are some excellent sipping tequilas - many of which are almost impossible to find in the USA. I find it great fun to seek them out and generally bring 1 or 2 bottles home and enjoy them over ice.

    Are there others out there that enjoy sipping tequilas? Any recommendations as to where to shop and taste - particularly in the Nuevo / Puerto Vallarta area? Any favorite tequilas?

    My favorite is Adictivo Anejo or Extra Anejo.

    Thanks for any info.
    Mike

    My wife also seeks out the different tequilas as we travel. She found one in Sedona at a importers, Dos Artes reserve especial 100% agave extra anejo. She claims to be extra smooth, and likens it to her 20 yr. scotch. Comes in a one of a kind hand painted bottle/numbered, and they ship. So you can see my predicament...;)

    I heard the Kirkland (Costco) Anejo is quite good for the price; I would like to try it; unfortunately, it is not available in Texas - nor can we have spirits shipped to us in the states.

    I do like that the little tequila shops in Mexico have a lot of nice tequilas to try before buying.

    Milenk, how far are you from a Costco California store that sell liquor?
    Maybe, a weekend trip to California, you can purchase some Kirkland Premium Tequila, or Kirkland Premium Vodka and they also have excellent deals on the various brands of Crown Royal, plus, Johnny Walkers red, black blue scotch brands labels.

    Also,We will stop up on Costco egg nog brand on our trip to OceanWatch in November.
    Their egg nog is the best.

    I love tequila! And PV is sure a great place to try many kinds. You just got to watch the tequila shops disguised as timeshare presentation centres.

    Extra old tequila for is my best friend. Anything smooth like water as it goes down with no burn is a ok. I like so many brands. There are too many to mention.

    Hacienda San Sebastian (reposada) just over the bridge toward San Sebastian is one of my favorites.

    We like Clase Azul Anejo. It comes in a white and blue porcelain bottle. The Silver comes in a clear hand blown glass bottle. We sip it straight up like a good Whiskey. Very occasionally you can find it at Costco. A few years ago we got a 1.750 bottle in Las Vegas for only $150.00 at Costco.

    If you venture to Louisiana, they sell it at Costco there. Very reasonable and great product.

    When I was last in Cancun area, they have a lot of local Tequila at the Duty free and they provides samples. I purchased a Chile Caliente. It is not chile flavored but rather comes in a bottle shaped like a Chile.

    My tequila purchase at home is usually Herradura Anejo.

    The Costco Anejo Tequila reminds me a lot of Patron Anejo, but a whole lot less money. It’s not the really good stuff you get in Mexico, but for the price, the Kirkland is outstanding.

    Thanks for this link - quite informative.

    I would like to try the Costco brand - but not really up for travel to get it and doubt it is good enough to justify the travel cost.

    So far, my only experience in tasting is the Tequila Pharmacy in Bucerias. While I have been impressed by the quality of what they offer, I really want to branch out to other stores within the region.

    I agree with your taste buds. The Costco Anejo Tequila is so much cheaper and is still good.

    Recent houseguests brought us a bottle of Don Julio 1942 ($125/bottle, I believe). It's the smoothest sipping tequila I have ever had, and I have had several good ones...though I never ventured into this price range.

    For what it's worth, if you did not know so already...when sipping mescal, Mexicans do so with a wedge of orange, not lemon and salt as many do with tequila...at least they did so in our favorite hangout in Merida. I found mescal to be much nicer than I had anticipated.

    try Don Julio 70 - less expensive than 1942 (which i have had and is very good - bought my wife a bottle for her birthday and then ended up buying a "case" since was cheaper per bottle that way).....Don Julio 70 is a clear anejo and also very smooth

    in san jose del cabo or cabo buy Don Malaquias anejo....don't think you can buy that anywhere else but it is very smooth - he also has a lot of different flavored tequila's that are good

    in cozumel i liked Los Tres Tonos anejo
