    Default Purchasing unique/rare mezcal

    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.

    I personally wouldn't order any of those off of ebay.

    Try mezcal.com for Del Maguey products, or see if you can find some Ilegal Mezcal online, and keep your eyes peeled for Los Danzantes.

    When you do finally find a source to order from, in my opinion if you show up holding a bottle of Del Maguey Chichicapa Mezcal, you will be very popular! I would stay away from anything with the mere mention of "Con Cusano"
    Good luck!
    Sip & Savor... please don't shoot!

    Default Del Maguey

    Del Maguey is widely available in Texas. I'm pretty certain someone out of this group will show up with some. That is why I'm trying the online route. However, I've tried Del Maguey, Sombra and several of the other higher-end mezcals and I do like them.

    Default One more thing

    Yep, my local liquor stores even carry the Del Maguey Chichicapa Mezcal and it seems to be pretty popular. Del Maguey and Sombra are two of the ones I actually do know of. I don't have a clue about any of the others.

    MrAgave - I found Los Danzantes online. Is there a specific type I should get? Is there any illegal mezcal you can recommend I look for online?

    I'm one of the few females invited to this shindig so you can imagine I want to trump whatever the men bring.

    I enjoy the entire lineup of Los Danzantes, and the repo or anejo would be a good selection if you think others will bring sombra or DM products.
