Tequila Jose Cuervo Anejo
Jose Cuervo Anejo is 100% Agave Tequila aged for at least one year in American oak barrels, and produced at Tequila Cuervo La Rojena.
Jose Cuervo Anejo was bottled in its short amber container that features a slanted neck. Each neck of every bottle is individually skewed, making each one unique. Along with the skewed neck and wax sealed top, the wrapped label (neck) exhibits a copy of the land grant presented to Jose Antonia de Cuervo by the King of Spain back in 1758.

I drank lots and lots of this stuff. Used to get it at Costco for $27. Now it's a collector item worth $200?. I'm down to the last bottle and I dig it out now and again. (like right now) Great aroma, a bit of oak and Chocolate. Initial taste like whisky barrel and Tequila. The body is in the full flavor category. Nice finish. Very nice bottle. If you get a chance to try some.. DON'T Miss it. over all rating of 91 cause you can't get it anymore.
I confess to being a little prejudiced in my judgement of this tequila. I believe it to be one of the best anejos ever offered on the market and I've probably drunk more of it than anyone else alive today. Unfortunately it is no longer available except for occasional finds in dusty backrooms of a few liquor stores (or maybe not). I may actually own some of the last bottles left that are available (I currently have five). This tequila combines the proper amount of bite at the same time as it provides a beautiful, slightly congacy like flavor, with a very smooth finish. In my mind, if you're going to drink anejo, this is the way it should be. There is something about the extra bite that makes it more tequila like than some of the super smooth, more aged products (Don Julio 1942, Casa Nobles, etc.) which sometimes seem more cognac like than tequila like. You get distinctive hints of the agave plant in it as well. This also used to be the best bargain around. I originally was able to purchase this for as low as $30/bottle (by the case). Unfortunately, now that it is no longer in production, the price has skyrocketed. My last find of 6 bottles in a place in San Francisco (I took everything they had) cost me $125/bottle (not to mention the shipping costs to get it back home). My wife was able to score a couple of bottles for me a few years ago but they cost even more ($150). Not sure it(or any tequila)is worth these prices but I have such a fondness for it that I don't mind paying.
