From 2016. Nose: Very muted aromas. Some indistinguishable sweetness with some earthiness. Trace spice. A hint of 7 Up citrus. Flavor: Significant black pepper. That sweetness..... with an artificial sweetener aftertaste. Thin, with bitter notes.

Original release from 2007 bottle 4377. Somewhat medicinal on the nose from a Jarrito the flavor is slightly off from some oxidation but still has the fake sweet vibe going on. If this has any involvement since release in the makeup of the XA the flavor of that hides the fake sweet very well. I don't think it does, it was released just to piggy back on the name of that product. Meh. A couple of years ago Cuervo released a Reposado in the line.

I find the single malt Irish Whiskey finish to be odd with conflicting elements from the light malted barley grain flavors and the agave and whiskey notes of the new char American barrel. It gives an almost syrup overtone from the sweet Irish elements. It's very odd to me for a Cuervo product. New to market following the Blanco and the Tradicional Reposado, this has new Cuervo line philosophy all over it. Smooth and sweet some will love the vanilla bean, caramel, malt flavors present. I guess Cuervo saw DJ Buchanan's as a success?

TMM says that JC Tradicional is diffuser and column still. The bottle claims clay ovens and 2x distilled in copper stills. It tastes diffuser because there are notes that I don’t usually find in other tequilas and I drink a lot of blancos, the purest form of tequila. Try it before you buy it. There are excellent tequilas in this price range.
