Proof66 Notes

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 Reserva Silver tequila is a blended tequila that includes a 15-day aging in American oak plus a "touch" of blending with other aged tequilas. As a result, it has a pale yellow color unusual for silver tequilas. Observant media consumers will notice the recent ad campaign spearheaded by Michael Imperioli of The Sopranos and later Good Fellas actor Ray Liotta, with the express purpose of targeting Patron and other high-profile (and more expensive) tequilas. The 1800 tequila brand is owned and managed by Proximo Spirits.

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.

This is an okay tequia..... period. This one burns bit too much to be sipped and prolly just better off for mixing and shooting. Has typical fermented-pineapple flavor associated with products coming from JC. One thing though is for the money i feel this is much better value than patron.

Great looking bottle; the shape and the blue color are really appealing and look nice on the bar (kind of a pain in the ass to open though). What's inside is just okay. If I were to do a blind taste test between this and the Arrogante Blanco I'm not sure I could tell the difference. I re-read my description of that and it seems to describe the 1800 pretty well too.

well don julio told me if I work hard I can come to his house someday but until then, 1800 silver lives on my street and is down for a good time any day of the week, and any hour of night.  I don't know, this stuff is pretty good.  It's mild mannered, but, actually tastes like Agave, unlike two fingers and the like.  I'd prefer Hornitos for sipping straight, but, this is fine for that too in a pinch.  I have mixed plenty of drinks with 1800 silver, cocktails that is, and they were excellent.  This is a fine, mid grade tequila.  Welcome in my home.

Very good tequila. I don't really care for the flavor straight, but for licking salt, shooting it, then sucking a limon this stuff is great. This would be good for any tequila mixing.

1800 comes at you with some pretty heavy flavor. This one has a bit of burn to it, and there is a lot more going on than other mass market, big name tequilas such as Sauza. But 1800s flavor also feels a bit forced, as if its trying too hard to be a top shelf tequila with lots of depth that will leave your tongue swirling. It ends up being more spicy than anything else. Not a bad thing, and probably welcome if you are enjoying a lot of Mexican food.
