I enjoy a good tequila now and then, both in margaritas and straight. Yes, straight. A good tequila can be sipped just like a fine bourbon.

It so happens that I am a fan of Herradura, specifically their reposado, so I noticed with interest the news that Brown-Forman has acquired the company, which also makes the El Jimador brand.

In another thread where this came up, WKU88 recommended Cuervo Gran Reserva. ("It may be the best tequila ever. It is expensive, though.") As well as Cuervo Traditional and Sauza Hornitos, which are reposados, and Cuervo 1800, an anejo.

So, what do you like in a tequila, either for sipping or mixing?
