The tequila taste test is conducted by amateur tequila tasters in a relatively uncontrolled environment on multiple occasions, spanning weeks, months, or even years. We haven't tried all the tequilas available, or even all the good tequilas out there, but give us time. The tequilas are separated into Anejos, Reposados, and Blancos because it is harder to compare them outside these groups.
Each of the groups are subdivided by taste with the current "favorite" at the top of the list. The ratings and taste evaluations are arbitrary at best and the tequilas in the middle tend to get blurred, but you can pretty much bet the farm on the top and bottom of the list. Actually I don't think there are any "bad" tequilas here, there is a time and place for each and every one of them.
Since prices have fluctuated so much the last year I have revised the price designation as $, $$, or $$$ which basically correlates to <$30, $30-$50, and >$50 for a 750 ml bottle in the Dallas, Texas area. Feel free to email me your personal evaluations or you can send me a bottle of your favorite and I will include it in the list. Some of our favorites are shown below.
