A really sumptuous anejo taken, as the name suggests, from the private stocks of the Cuervo family. This tequila has been aged five years for exceptional smoothness.
The box changes every year and the 2011 editions have been designed by Dr Lakra, aka Jeronimo Lopez Ramirez, a Mexican artist and tattooist who has exhibited his work, both tattoo designs and altered found images, around the world.
A high-end product indeed. A complex mixture of wood and spice.

I'm sipping some of my treasured 2006 as I type. This is liquid heaven. My favourite tequila ever.

Nice to see so many comments here about the Reserva! I'm sure it still surprises people with its quality, but it lacks compared to its older editions(<2006). Still great though and the boxes are beautiful. I have about 10 unopened ones from 2005 and back waiting for special occasions!

sorry but why in earth would you use it in a margarita??? margaritas shouls be made with young tequila!

I bought a bottle of it in 2000 after having some in their tasting room in Cabo. It sat in my bar fridge for 10 years then we drank it with some trader joes margarita mix! I paid like 20 bucks back then... maybe 40. Now I feel bad that it costs $100. the margaritas were good....

the king of sipping tequillas. I drink it neat with a fine cigar.

Tried it with a mate in London. Pure velvet, strong vanilla notes, incredible finish. The smoothest tequila i ever had, very easily on par with a good Armagnac for richness and depth - not a small accolade from a French person. The aftertaste stays with you for minutes. Pure liquid joy.That would make a fabulous gift for someone you realllly like - who knows, he may open the bottle for you.

This tequila is an extra anejo and it tastes like a reposado. The earth is very pronounced and all in all decent. If you want the vanilla, cinnamon and oak of an extra anejo get the Don Julio 1942 or Casa Noble. Both good but disparate in price. If you can find Clase Azul get it.

I lived in Mexico for 2 years and this was my Tequila of choice. It is simply the best. Restaurants in Mexico charge approx ?6 per glass! (given that we used to buy 6 bottles of Corona for ?2.50, this was expensive by comparison) Pure nectar in a glass. To be sipped from a minature Brandy glass with a glass of VERY spicy tomato juice for company!

Went to mundo cuervo in Tequila, Jal last week and tried it directly out of a barrel. That was tequila heaven! Needless to say, the 2 bottles customs allows flown back, were of this amazing tequila. An '07 and '08. The best I've had!
