A superb ultra-premium 100% blue agave Tequila from Jose Cuervo. The Tequila is aged in small oak barrels for over a year before release, and comes in a splendidly Inca-esque bottle.
More from 1800
I know my good tequila, and this isn’t it. Put simply it has that same cough syrup/antiseptic taste as supermarket staple Jose Cuervo reposado, but at 3x the price. Tastes nothing like actual anejo tequila, definitely one to miss, go for Don Julio, Patron for roughly the same cost, or for even less try Herradura or Lunazul anejo, all are far superior to 1800.
This is my first Anejo after a few quality Reposados. I can't say that this has won me over from the Reposado (yet) - I enjoy the actual fresh fruity/vegetal/grassy taste the way I enjoy pisco or grappa. But I am mainly a single malt drinker, so I know that more time needs to be given to each bottle. I drink from a Glencairn glass, no ice and maybe a drop or three of water (this is only 40% abv). I am only interested in quality sipping spirits (and this is one of them, no lime/salt for me) and I am not even into cocktails. I am enjoying the first encounter, still tasting the agave but also a bit of smoke. I wonder if it's the char from the barrels or if the pinas were smoke cooked (vs. steamed) like with mezcal. Slight pleasant spiciness/bite/nip but no harshness (not solventy, no acetone/super glue notes you get with young bourbons). It's woody, but seems like the casks are of good quality - there is no palate-saturating heavy tannin astringency that you get if sipping a cheap blend (JW Red Label) that was aged in tired casks. My rating of 4 stars is not due to any lack of quality but rather due to my lack of experience - I simply haven't tasted enough Anejos to compare. For the price IMHO this is a good value on its own merits. I'm sure there are better Anejos out there, for more money, which would score a 5, so 4 is a very high rating. And I would say that this tequila, in terms of quality and enjoyment, would be on par with an XO Cognac/Armagnac, a good mid-level bourbon and a 12-16 year old unchill-filtered single malt at 46%.
Beautiful tequila will definitely be using this site again, tasted exactly the same as the one in Mexico! Thanks whiskey exchange
Good taste, good price.
This is excellent, the sweet honey overtones make this excellent to sip and or use with mixers - I'm hooked 4 1/2
