A reliable go to when you want a balanced, aged tequila. I have always been a fan of the barrel influence and easy butterscotch flavours going on.

This almost like drinking a bourbon. Hardly any agave notes. I’m sure that that was the intention of Cuervo. This rating is for The Rolling Stones edition. The finish is actually decent.

I’m reviewing the Reserva de Familia that I was served straight from the barrel at the distillery in Tequila Mexico. This was unfiltered and not proofed down. The nose is full of oak vanilla and brown sugar. I taste cooked agave and strong oak. That taste is sweet and smooth with medium finish. It has a light mouth feel. The price for the bottle in the USA hurt this score several points. I can purchase DJ 1942 for $30 less that the JC RdF XA. I’ll update this review once I open and sample the bottle I purchased. ———————— Update: The color is that of an American Bourbon. It has a nice dark copper color. On the nose I detect a sweet vanilla / caramel, almost smells like a Coca-Cola Tequila. There is floral, almost perfume note. The taste is oak forward, dark fruit notes and sweet cooked agave. The finish is a rich dark agave, slightly sweet. Overall this is a good XA but it is priced approximately $20 -$30 too high, in my opinion. It’s worth purchasing once to see if you like it. Salud!

2014: Oak dominates. New oak, woody oak nose as well as a charred oak presence. Some fruit notes and vanilla. Flavor: Whisky oak, spiciness and white pepper on the palate. Hints of creme soda. Some butterscotch. Finish is a little rough... Wood and oak and amargo finish.

2014 vintage....Dark, rich and tasty. Still a good intro tequila for newbies. Sweet rich aroma. Caramel, burnt sugar, bit of dark cherry maybe, with a good bit of oak and pepper on the back end. Nice lingering finish makes me want another sip....

This and the platino should be Cuervos standard..they should cut the price and forget the rest!

I got this straight from the barrel at Jose Cuervo. I find myself entertained by the slow droplets running down my glass. Sweet Carmel and candied yam. Can't stop looking at these huge tears running down my glass.

Different years have a different flavor profile. Rule of thumb is that 2004 and earlier are the best. 2005-08 are considered as having strayed from the formula that worked. The boxes which are different every year are collectable works of art.

Aroma of caramel, oak and whiskey. Flavor is sweet and mellow with some heat and spice coming in late. But, as with many aged tequilas, the overwhelming flavor is whiskey. Over the years, I have introduced many whiskey and scotch loving friends to tequila with the Reserva de la Familia. It is always a hit with them. And, like Paul at one time I thought this was the epitome of "good" tequila. Now, I would say that it is a fine, aged tequila but not my cup of tea.

The aroma has hints of anise, caramel, cherry, and is a bit medicinal. The flavor is consistent with the aroma but you definitely taste more of the barrel than you get in the nose. Overall, a decent Extra Anejo but not worth the price.

Nice. Almost indistinguishable from scotch. Long aftertaste.

Hard to believe there isn’t some manipulation to flavor and color. That said the packaging, bottle, etc. is in a class by itself and I’ve enjoyed sipping this beauty for 35+ years. I can even remember the first time: a rainy summer afternoon in South Lake Tahoe at the old Cantina Los Tres Hombres. Makes a great gift for tequila doubters.

A lovely drink with the typical peppery Cuervo taste. Best for cold winter evenings sitting in a wing chair next to a fireplace.

Wonderful caramel and vanilla aromas. Gorgeous deep amber color. A little bite on the finish which smooths out nicely.
