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.

This particular tequila is a newly launched reposado celebrating their 209 years of tequila making tradition.

Cuervo Reserva de la Familia anejo tequila is an ultra-premium tequila made from a blend of tequilas aged at least 3 years but containing tequilas as old as 30. It is said that the Reserva de la Familia tequila is a 10-generation old family recipe unavailable until recently. Each bottle is hand-numbered and sealed in wax. The bottles are hand-made and newly commissioned each year.

Cuervo has recently launched an interesting ad campaign called Living Notoriously Well... it has some interesting anecdotes.

      This tequila has one of the best aromas ever, one of those liquors that you want to take your time sniffing its rich aromas then slowing sipping. On the nose you get rich, SWEET, fruity agave laden with oak and caramel. Despite the sweet aromas, it is rather dry on palate and goes down extremely smooth feeling like you didnt drink anything literally. If you thought Jose Cuervo makes only bad tequilas, i dare you to challenge a glass of this and think again regarding their products.
