Upon pour, I was immediately drawn to the majestic golden hue and a mature aroma balanced with gentle hints of sherry and sweet, cooked agave. The taste was an enthralling mix of vanilla flavors layered with caramel and chocolate undertones and it's finish was a seduction of lingering vanilla impressions and a hint of oak for a warm, sensuous finish.
I am in Cabo San Lucas, and just had an amazing meal at Edith's. As good astuff the meal was, the aftereal dinner standard pour of the Cuervo 250th anniversary tequila was more impressive. The flavor was subtle, as you might expect for such remarkable (and long aged) tequila. Surprisingly, this still had the gentle notes of blue agava, a sweetness, and the nose was a heady rush of carmel. It was an almost spiritual experience, understanding that some of the blend was over 100 years old. Life is short, and you get one shot. Enjoy a pour of this special tequila, as soon as you can. As I tell everyone, drink the good stuff first.
