Review: Jose Cuervo Tradicional Reposado

Posted by Arctic Wolf on May 2, 2022

In 1795, Jose MarĂ­a Guadalupe de Cuervo began to commercially produce his Mexcal wine spirit based upon an official permit from the King of Spain. By 1812, he had established La Rojena, the distillery which to this day still produces Jose Cuervo Tequila.

By 1844, Cuervo Tequila was being distributed within Mexico, and in 1873 the earliest known documented export of the tequila outside of Mexico occurred when 3 bottles of Cuervo were transported across the United States border by donkey. Those exports have continued (although no longer by donkey), and in 2013 the Jose Cuervo brand was recognized as the best-selling tequila brand in the entire world. The brand has been owned by the Beckmann family of Mexico and has been in this family for 11 generations. The Brand is currently distributed in North America by Proximo Spirits.

Jose Cuervo Tradicional is marketed as the original Cuervo tequila. The Reposado version is produced from 100% blue agave, and aged (or rested) in oak barrels for a minimum of two months before being bottled at 40 % alcohol by volume.

Here is a link to my recent review:

Review: Jose Cuervo Tradicional Reposado

“… Light fruity agave, hints of fine wood spices, peppery agave spice. As the glass breathes the earthy somewhat punky agave scents become more prominent and a light sweetness of honey and vanilla appear. Scents of grilled pineapple and baked squash add to the fruitiness. Some scattered tea leaves add a touch of complexity …”

Please enjoy my review which concludes with my recipe suggestion, the Cantarito.

Chimo!
