I bought this tequila Duty free on my way back from Mexico. It was the most expensive tequila I have ever purchased at $87.50 but it came highly recommended by the sommelier at the resort we stayed at. Frankly I was sceptical of buying a Jose Cuervo product as my experience had been limited to their blended products and my Teenage memories. "Boy was I wrong" I am seriously thinking of pouring this at a whisky tasting as I think it will fool at least half the group. It has all the characteristics of the best barrel aged spirits with great complexity on the nose and palate with a smack of Agave. It is a blend of mostly 3 year aged product with some additions of older vintages up to 30 years, not many tequilas are as old as this and it sure comes through. This may become my new only on special occasion beverage. In BC this Tequila sells for $184.00 so look for it when you travel it is great value.
