Jose Cuervo Reserva de la Familia Anejo Tequila

Jose Cuervo Reserva de la Familia Anejo Tequila - 100% Añejo. 100% Blue Agave. Aged in oak barrels for an average of 3 years. Final blend includes Tequila from reserves aged over 30 years. Only the estate’s finest 10-year-old agaves are hand-selected. Only the most flavorful inner portion of the agave’s piña (heart) is used. Vibrant, with a full, mellow flavor, combines floral, agave, vanilla and Cognac-like flavors.

Reserva de la Familia is the Cuervo family's finest Tequila. In fact, for over 10 generations it was a family secret only shared with the closest of friends. In 1995, to celebrate their 200-year anniversary as the world's leading producer of Tequila, the Cuervo family decided to share this blend of its special Tequila reserves with people who truly savor an exceptional taste sensation.

Reserva de la Familia is often served in a snifter, where its complex flavors and aromas can be fully appreciated. Produced in limited quantities with a distinct personality that varies from year to year, Reserva de la Familia has been recognized with several prestigious awards in Mexico, the United States and Europe.

Each bottle is handmade, numbered, dated and sealed in wax, and every year the Cuervo family commissions a different Mexican artist to design the new collectible box for Reserva de la Familia.

It's a tequila that every tequila drinker should try...and that most will really enjoy. It's a very good tequila.

Aroma: Great agave smell with some woody and caramel notes.
Initial Taste: Agave taste with plenty of wood and spice notes.
Body: Thick mouth feel with a nice smooth flavor throughout.
Finish: Pleasant finish and burn with the aging really coming through.

Let's be honest...this is a very good tequila. It's not in my top 10, but I enjoy it every time that I have it. However, at $100+, I need to enjoy it more for it to be worth the price. There's tequilas at half the price that I enjoy more. It's always nice to have the box and bottle on the shelf, but if I'm making recommendations to people with cost being a consideration, this isn't one that I tell people to rush out and buy.

Very good tequila. Dark, with very good body, tastes variety of flavours like caramel, oak and a little "toasted sensation". The only bad detail is the price, it's a very good tequila but for sure there are other tequilas "añejos or extra añejos" that can give this one a very tight match at a very lower price (comparing with this one). The over price affects the enjoyability because you expect a divine elixir for the price you're paying and finally you see that it is just a very good tequila but nothing extremely amazing.

Is an excellent tequila that makes you bright in a good dinner, because it is a very good tequila and even more because everyone will know what is the price of the bottle.

Carameled and Woody tasting, nice long final, very good aroma but over priced (not excesively over priced but you have the sense that you can have some a little bit better for the price) to me, even in México you can find tequilas "artesanales añejos" that costs a third part or half of this one, of course the knowing that you paid a lot and is not the very best tequila affects the enjoyability.

Acaramelado y amaderado, tiene un buen y largo final, tiene un buen aroma pero esta sobrevaluado (no excesivamente sobrevaluado pues al final es un buen tequila, pero te deja la sensación de que pudiste obtener algo mejor) para mi, incluso en México puedes encontrar tequilas artesanales añejos que cuestan la tercera parte o la mitad que éste. Por supuesto saber que pagaste mucho y no es realmente el mejor tequila que hayas probado afecta el ser disfrutado al máximo.

As a Long time Scotch drinker and new Tequila fan I would describe this as an exceptional spirit. I enjoyed the deep vanilla flavor from the oak aging and found it to have a smooth Carmel mouth feel. I understand that to many people this lacks the strong agave flavor they desire, but to a whiskey drinker like me this has the drinkability of a fine 18 year old scotch from Speyside.

This is a very enjoyable anejo. This dark and aromatic tequila must be enjoyed in a snifter. I enjoy the aromas as much as the flavor. The price is high but do not expect the best anejo. Do not set your expectations based on price and you will be very happy with this tequila.
