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.
