This Tequila is perfect for Bourbon lovers.

Every fifth Tequila bottle sold in the world is made by Jose Cuervo. These guys really go way back with Tequila as Jose Antonio Cuervo was actually the first person to obtain a license to make Tequila from the King Carlos IV in 1795. But even before that, in 1758, another royal figure King Fernand VI was like, here, some land for you to grow agave and maybe see where it goes. Over 250 years of experience means something in the Tequila world (And in other worlds as well.) and it's impressive that the company is still family-owned today after being passed down for generations (And with it, the methods, the recipes, the craftsmanship). The Beckmann family of Mexico are descendants of Don José Antonio de Cuervo and Juan-Domingo Beckmann is the 6th generation leader of the company.

Jose Cuervo Reserva De La Familia range is as special as it sounds. These small batch Tequilas are the result of an artisanal process that's been passed down for generations in the Jose Cuervo family and that starts with the mineral rich soils of the agave fields. There are 3 expressions in this collection with Extra Añejo being the first one to be released. Aged in a combo of American and French oak for 4-5 years, it's easily recognisable by its amber color. Bourbon lovers will be delighted by the flavor profile that's reminiscent of typical Bourbon flavors with notes of caramel, vanilla and cinnamon. Obviously, this is a Tequila, so expect cooked agave notes galore. Bottled at 80 proof, this Extra Añejo was revolutionary when it was released and it's still relevant today.

Adam
Adam,
This tequila knocked my socks off. I was hesitant at first to try due to price and brand. I can now say without a doubt, this is the best tequila I’ve ever had.
 
Tim
Tim,
It's by far the best tequila I've ever tasted. It's deep and full flavored. It's almost more bourbon than tequila. My wife and I got it from the Cuervo facility in Mexico on a cruise. I'd go on the exact same cruise just to get more.

Absolutely a gorgeous tequila. As a tequila frequent drinker, this makes my top 2 along with Dos Artes Extra Anjejo.

Liam,
I had this while I was out west. As a bourbon guy sipping through tequila for the first time, this was an exquisite treat. Sweet, complex, caramel and vanilla. I'm currently looking for a bottle, and hoped Flaviar might come through, but no dice.

Ivan,
Tasted this alongside blanco, reposado and añejo at casa cuervo. One of my favorite sipping tequilas. Sweet notes with a hint of cinnamon. Good to pair with dessert or chocolate.

Edwin,
This is why Jose is a household name. You can taste the standard Jose Cuervo flavor here, but it is refined and actually worth drinking straight. I wouldn't use this is in a mixed drink. Just put it on one rock, and treat it like an agave-based whiskey.

Todd,
Got it much cheaper at the Cancun Duty Free. Granted it would be worth the 60 dollars more. The only downside is the nose other extra anejo's typically have a better nose. Very smooth but still spirited spicy as a tequila should be. Who'd would of know Jose Cuervo would make something like this... back in my college days it was up there with El Toro and the like.
