Jose Cuervo Reserva de la Familia Tequila
Tequila Extra Añejo
Tequila Valley, Jalisco, Mexico
First released in 1995 to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the distillery, Jose Cuervo Reserva de la Familia is the world's first extra-añejo tequila. Distilled from agave hearts harvested at seven to twelve years old and then matured in both American and French oak barrels for at least 3 years, this is the ultimate expression of Jose Cuervo. Rich and flavorful, sip this neat or on the rocks.
Tequila Extra AñejoDistilled from 100% blue Weber agave, it is aged for at least 3 years in barrels not to exceed 600 liters. Any type of wood is acceptable, although ex-bourbon barrels are most common. Extra Añejo tequilas are also known as "ultra aged".
"Dark with rich, syrupy legs in the glass, this tequila entices with aromas of fresh vanilla-fudge, medium oak and roasted agave. The mouthfeel is thick and unctuous, providing the perfect vehicle for deep oak, agave, roasted pineapple, vanilla pound-cake and piloncillo sugar. Hints of saddle leather, cinnamon, red apple and pear are evident, and a big, rich finish satisfies with more vanilla, oak, and roasted apple all which are slow to retreat."
