At Señor tequila. Sweet cooked agave, oak barrel, alcohol. Palate: honey, wood, oak, pepper. Finish med, with lots of oak and honey. $35 neat is overpriced

A reliable go to when you want a balanced, aged tequila. I have always been a fan of the barrel influence and easy butterscotch flavours going on.

This almost like drinking a bourbon. Hardly any agave notes. I’m sure that that was the intention of Cuervo. This rating is for The Rolling Stones edition. The finish is actually decent.

I’m reviewing the Reserva de Familia that I was served straight from the barrel at the distillery in Tequila Mexico. This was unfiltered and not proofed down. The nose is full of oak vanilla and brown sugar. I taste cooked agave and strong oak. That taste is sweet and smooth with medium finish. It has a light mouth feel. The price for the bottle in the USA hurt this score several points. I can purchase DJ 1942 for $30 less that the JC RdF XA. I’ll update this review once I open and sample the bottle I purchased. ———————— Update: The color is that of an American Bourbon. It has a nice dark copper color. On the nose I detect a sweet vanilla / caramel, almost smells like a Coca-Cola Tequila. There is floral, almost perfume note. The taste is oak forward, dark fruit notes and sweet cooked agave. The finish is a rich dark agave, slightly sweet. Overall this is a good XA but it is priced approximately $20 -$30 too high, in my opinion. It’s worth purchasing once to see if you like it. Salud!

2014: Oak dominates. New oak, woody oak nose as well as a charred oak presence. Some fruit notes and vanilla. Flavor: Whisky oak, spiciness and white pepper on the palate. Hints of creme soda. Some butterscotch. Finish is a little rough... Wood and oak and amargo finish.

2014 vintage....Dark, rich and tasty. Still a good intro tequila for newbies. Sweet rich aroma. Caramel, burnt sugar, bit of dark cherry maybe, with a good bit of oak and pepper on the back end. Nice lingering finish makes me want another sip....

This and the platino should be Cuervos standard..they should cut the price and forget the rest!

I got this straight from the barrel at Jose Cuervo. I find myself entertained by the slow droplets running down my glass. Sweet Carmel and candied yam. Can't stop looking at these huge tears running down my glass.

Different years have a different flavor profile. Rule of thumb is that 2004 and earlier are the best. 2005-08 are considered as having strayed from the formula that worked. The boxes which are different every year are collectable works of art.

Aroma of caramel, oak and whiskey. Flavor is sweet and mellow with some heat and spice coming in late. But, as with many aged tequilas, the overwhelming flavor is whiskey. Over the years, I have introduced many whiskey and scotch loving friends to tequila with the Reserva de la Familia. It is always a hit with them. And, like Paul at one time I thought this was the epitome of "good" tequila. Now, I would say that it is a fine, aged tequila but not my cup of tea.

The aroma has hints of anise, caramel, cherry, and is a bit medicinal. The flavor is consistent with the aroma but you definitely taste more of the barrel than you get in the nose. Overall, a decent Extra Anejo but not worth the price.

Nice. Almost indistinguishable from scotch. Long aftertaste.

Nice oak influence on the nose and palate. Roasted agave, vanilla bean ice cream, honey, caramel. Medium sweet finish. I wish it was a little less in price, but it is certainly a nice treat.

As soon as you open it you are hit with a very oaky scent combined with leather. Upon tasting it has more burn than I was expecting and very little agave. Sampled alongside Patron Piedra and this didn’t stand up well against that. It could easily have been a brandy rather than a tequila that I was drinking. All of the above is true, however coming back a few weeks later, the bottle seems to have mellowed somewhat and is far more enjoyable. Maybe there is something to letting it breathe or maybe I was in a different mood. Either way I am more excited to come back again next time to finish this off.

Aroma: Caramel and cooked agave, very light cinnamon, vanilla, and oak. Taste: Sweet initially, with a nice mix of caramel and agave. Finish: Smooth with an accentuation of the flavors present in the taste, especially the cinnamon. Light alcohol bite at the end with some warmth. Overall: The first time I tried this was at a tasting at La Rojeña. Was not expecting to be so impressed, to the point that I decided to leave with my own bottle.

Sweet !!! Imagine a cognac/whiskey blend, not a lot of agave but lots of wood. I feel there is maybe sugar added and maybe something to soften it.I also tried The Rolling Stones Tour Pick and enjoyed it more, did not have that additive taste as much. This will be great for a rum lover or in sweet cocktails or as a digestive after dinner.

A major oak bomb! If you want this…just drink bourbon.

Mexican chocolate, Carmel, spices including black pepper, cloves, cinnamon. The oak is pretty dominant, it has a hint of smoke. The liquid is dense. It coats the mouth well and very flavorful. However, for the price point there are better tequila out there including El Tesoro de Don Felipe Extra Anejo And El Tesoro Paradiso, Fuenteseca 7 year, Don Pilar Extra Anejo, Avion Reserva 44 Extra Anejo, Don Fulano Extra Anejo, Fortaleza Anejo, Arte Nom 1146 Anejo. These are examples of tequila that at the same or below the price in my area. I can recommend over this tequila. If I was offer a glass of it by someone down the road, yes I’ll drink again but I wouldn’t buy it. I would recommend the tequilas I mentioned above over this one.
