bibamus, moriendum est
Maybe I've posted this before, but 1921 Reserva Especial (Reposado) is probably the best tequila, especially for the $55 cost. Note the dark red top; not the green of the regular reposado, which is ok, too, just not great.
Great for sipping or for a killer margarita ("martini" style). I started drinking it based on a recommendation by my barber, who's from Mexico. He told me to get it on a trip to Puerta Vallarta. It wasn't even imported then. A few years later, it was imported, then seemed to disappear. Now, it seems to be readily available again.
1921 was the year the Mexican Revolution ended
all the 100% de agave tequilas have a NOM number, which is a number given to the distillery by the government. different brands made by the same distillery will have the same NOM number
remember, dark red top, not green! not that I had any trouble going through the regular reposado in Margaritas!!!
"A man can take a little bourbon without getting drunk, but if you hold his mouth open and pour in a quart, he's going to get sick on it."
I'll have to grab that. It's summer now and I do prefer reposados.

The 1921 cream tequila is equally delicious.
