Proof66 Notes

The Cuervo name traces its history all the way back to 1758 with Jose Antonio Cuervo. The name quickly grew for the next 100 years to include somewhere between 2.5 million and 5 million agave plants on over 10,000 hectares by the turn of 20th century. Unfortunately, in the 1930s, the estate was broken up into smaller farmsteads. Grupo Cuervo was formed in 1979 after several different owners and managers of the Cuervo brand and assets. Since that time they have been neck-and-neck with Sauza in tequila production and working with international distributors. In 1998, they expanded their brand into premium tequilas, including some Coleccion Anejo tequilas that fetched $1,000 per bottle.

1800 tequilas are made by Casa Cuervo from 100% blue agave. The name comes from the "historic event" of aging tequila in oak for the very first time. The line was first launched in 1975 as a premium sipping tequila.

1800 Silver Select tequila is one of the first and very few 100 proof tequilas--Cuervo claiming it is the only 100 proof silver tequila. The tequila enjoys a proprietary distillation process that includes a 15-day aging in American oak plus filtration to remove the color additives from the oak.

The 1800 tequila brand is owned and managed by Proximo Spirits.

At 100 proof this tequila has bite. It's not a tequila I'd want to take as a shot. It would work better as a mixing tequila so you can tame the harshness and raw flavors with other ingredients and with dilution. I notice the oak flavors in the mid palate, hint of agave and starts to finish with a warm sweet notes. Not bad as a tequila base if heavily mixed with other ingredients.

A drinkable tequila at a cheap price. A bit drier than its 80 proof brother with a lot more bouquet and presence, good choice one for someone on a budget or who is just starting to explore tequila. Think of it as the grown up version of their Silver Tequila. Downside is it is a bit fiery or raw - but sometimes you want that in a Tequila - makes you appreciate what you are potentially doing to yourself and might slow you down.
