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.

This is a lot better than I remember or probably give it credit for, it’s got agave notes in all the right places. The column still is likely the culprit for stripping away all the personality but it makes a decent margarita.

Rated blind. When I learned what it was I was surprised. There’s a cocoa powder aroma and flavor to it that I responded favorably to.

Edited March 9, 2019, prompted by an earlier discussion with John Welch, and based on the results of Grover’s rating today.... Interestingly, John’s bottle states “ESTATE GROWN BLUE AGAVE ARE SLOW COOKED IN CLAY OVENS AND THEN DOUBLE-DISTILLED IN COPPER STILLS.” My bottle makes no such claims. Instead mine says, ”Como parte de la tradición, se recomiendo congelado.” (“As part of the tradition, frozen is recommended.”). ??? Nose: My first whiff brought on the Cuervo Gold gag response, remembered vividly from college days. I gave the tequila and myself a chance to breathe. My second dive in brought a wave of new oak shavings, cinnamon, coarse ground black pepper, and a tinny canned fruit aroma. Upon re tasting, I detected some minerals and ripe fruit. Flavor: Hot and sweet, but not in an appealing sense. Rough with bitter wood notes on the sides and back of my tongue. Picked up some vanilla and white chocolate notes second time around...And, oddly, at only 38% ABV it is burning and numbing my upper palate and tongue. Finish: An acrid aftertaste that is off putting to me.

NOM 1104 Imported by Heublein. Bottle is labeled 199 meaning 1 year before Cuervo's 200th Anniversary in 1995. Some loss of alcohol has resulted in a loss of vibrancy but this still has solid flavor of agave and barrel spice along with a lack of the whole fake cinnamon I get from current Tradicional. Glad to have tasted this as this was an early favorite for me in my tequila journey. I was drinking this over 20 years ago. 05232018

Just ok. Slightly bitter with a modest price.

Predicted it would be like Cuervo gold but a bit smoother and was spot on! Unpleasant tannin taste?!?

Aroma of agave and solvent, probably a byproduct of the diffuser. Flavor is astringent and that hint of solvent again with maybe some black pepper. Thankfully the finish doesn't last too long.

I wouldn’t recommend this to my worst enemy. Please don’t buy it. I would even mix it in a margarita.

peppery, woodchips, this should be the JC bottomline instead of the especial ( which is undrinkable), ok for mixing!

taste kind of like a Oaxacan style mezcal. Has a smokey agave finish. The price wise is a great everyday sipping Tequila.

The smell is faint . It opens nice , good mouth feel , good burn . The finish has a rough , smokey taste.

A go-to for mixing at its cheap price point... burns if drinking from a shot glass. This is much better than Especial in that it is drinkable.

Raw alcohol mixed with middling agave notes on the palate, harsh and shallow, almost sour on the finish. Nose maybe the least offensive, though this is scant praise. Price is reasonable, though value suspect considering the relatively low quality.

In my glass: Jose Cuervo Tradicional Reposado I know it’s Jose Cuervo but wait... they actually tried on this very smooth easy shot pour and for the price I think is the most reasonable I work at a liqure store and 27$ for a 5th in this category deserves a level 2/3 if there was a shelf that had cheap and expensive it would be top shelf for cheap regular shelf it’s a 2/3 would never drink Jose but this one is an exception

Cooked agave aroma. Flavour of agave, vanilla, pepper. Long but uninteresting finish. This tequila is neither exceptional nor offensive.

5 Essential Tequilas for a Well-Stocked Bar

Some people, when talking about essential bottles for a well-stocked bar, leave out tequila (unlike, say, bourbon or scotch). Some people think that the only thing tequila is good for is making margaritas. Some people are wrong.

Review #245 - Jose Cuervo Tradicional Tequila Reposado

Mexicans aren't subjected to the mixto garbage that we have to have cluttering the shelves, so Cuervo Tradicional is a staple down there.
