This is not a typical blanco, and not a typical nose...and I don't mean that in either a good or bad way. There is some sweet cooked agave in there, but I mainly get yeast - bread...maybe sourdough. It's really like nothing else, so hard for me to compare. Once it hits your mouth, the typical Cuervo taste kicks in - more yeast with some sweetness, but I'm not a fan. Again, it's hard to compare this; it's not that this is awful, but I just don't care for the JC taste. Moving on, actually a nice velvety body with this platino, and a nice, mild mouth-numbing. Overall, a very above-average body. Hard to rate the finish here; on the one hand, it is smooth with a medium-to-long duration of good quality; on the other hand, it has the classic Cuervo taste and lingering.

This is really tough to measure for overall enjoyability. My scores jumped around a lot. It has a nice body and a decent finish from a physical aspect, but the JC taste is not my thing. Price really fails on this product. It has an ultra-premium price wherever you find it, and it simply is not worth it. If you can find it at a 'bargain' of, say, $40 or less, it might be worth having in your collection, but not as a go-to blanco. A very elegant bottle normally packaged in a nice wooden box. The label is colorful and artful.

In short, this was a decent blanco tequila that is wonderfully packaged and not at all worth the price.

Aroma: Simple agave and maybe a bit of earth and spice.
Initial Taste: Clean, light agave and a touch of bitterness that I didn't like that much.
Body: Thin, but the agave comes through a bit more.
Finish: A bit of burn and it doesn't stay with you.

If you bought it, you'll enjoy it and enjoy the bottle. From a value perspective, you can just flat out do better. It will look great on a shelf though.

Tasted with ice on May 13, 2008.

Jose Cuervo Platino Reserva de la Familia

Color: clear
Aroma: agave & the smell of the ice
Taste: light on the tongue with the taste of wet cement thoughout finishing with very little burn

This is a blanco that I felt is all name and over priced. I will not try again without the ice to see if the taste changes as other blanco have cut thru the ice with great flavors. I favor the blancos of Chinaco, Corralejo and Milagro. My current top three blanco picks as of the writing of this review.

Beautifully packaged, but I think I was paying more for that than the tequila itself! In my humble opinion, a bit overpriced. But is it a great blanco? Id have to say yes, but it doesnt break into my top five.

Aroma: Nice hints floral and earth
Initial taste: Slightly bitter but very tasty
Body: intense flavors of agave and earth
Finish and duration: A bit of a short numbing finish for me.

Jose Cuervo Reserva de la Familia Platino 2007 NOM 1122 Tasted on 11/23/07 at 7:00pm. I tried this tequila at the Davis Graduate Tequila Bar and tasted it in a snifter glass. This bottle comes with a wooden box. With clear color, this tequila has intense aromas of floral and earth. Other aromas include moderate spice and smoke with mild fruit accents. The tequila has a thin mouth feel and on the first sip is sweet with mild bitterness. Intense flavors of agave, earth, and smoke are followed by moderate notes of spice, chemicals, and floral flavors. With a medium duration of flavor this tequila finishes with a numbing finish. Jose Cuervo Reserva de la Familia Platino 2007 has received the rating of 86 points out of 100.
