Only buy tequila that is 100% de agave or 100% puro de agave. Better to get the decent stuff and drink less than to get a bottle of liquid death. This is one of those things that just really shouldn't be up for debate.
We heart tequila. Below are some of our favorites. Do you agree with our rankings?

Reposado - aged for at least two months in French or white oak barrels
