    Going to Mexico, may want to bring back tequila. Scotch is my drink but I'd like to take home a bottle of good sipping tequila. Suggestions?

    If you're looking for a good sipping tequila, the only choice would be a fine anejo tequila - those aged in barrels for at least one year.  As far as brands go, I'll suggest a few favorites:

    Patron Anejo - lots of agave flavor and a gentle yellow hue.

    Corazon Anejo - deep brown color and robust flavors from the barrels.

    El Tesoro Paradiso - actually a blend of anejo tequilas from the reserve batches at El Tesoro, this is a collector's bottle of ultra premium stuff.  Complex, smooth and elegant.  Since you're buying the bottle in Mexico, this might actually be the best bargain of the bunch.

    I second the Patron Anejo. I have a bottle of that at home. Very tasty.
