I'm attending a function where we are each responsible for bringing a bottle of mezcal for tasting. I want to find something unique or rare because others attending will go to our local big liquor store and buy what they have on the shelves. There will also be some collectors there that should have something cool.
I live in Texas and travel to Houston, Dallas, Austin and San Antonio. I'm hoping for a recommendation of where I can find a reliable source to purchase on the Internet or in these cities that isn't the local liquor store.
I notice old forum entries reference Ebay, but I don't know what I'm looking at. This is what is currently available so let me know your thoughts about whether these are viable candidates:
Tequila Dos Gusanos Mezcal $20
ULTRAMARINE MEZCAL BY MEXICO Reg. SSA 155391 "B" 70 cl $9.99
Is the Pyramide 40 year old quart bottle for $269.95 worth it?
Scorpion 100% Agave Mezcal Reposado $60
Tequila Juana Gallo Mezcal $45
Arte Mezcal Limited Edition Bottle# 187/300 worth $189?
Beneva Mezcal Gran Reserva Hand Blown-VERY LIMITED worth $199?
Don Aquiles Mezcal Collector Classic $89
MEZCAL CON GUSANO TEQUILA $39.99
Thanks for any help you can provide.
