Jose Cuervo Especial Reposado, vs Bambarria Joven, Tequila, 38%

Well my lockdown miniatures have lasted well – these are the final two tequila.

The big brand Jose versus an unknown Bambarria.

Neither are 100% Blue Agave – so both can contain permitted additives as laid down by Mexican rules.

Presented at 38% ABV Jose is aged between 2 to 12 months being Reposado – whereas Bambarria – a Joven – is unaged.

So onto the tasting!

Jose Cuervo Especial Reposado

A soft pungent agave nose. Very easy on the palate with a lively white pepper kick on the rear.

Bambarria Joven

Soft agave with just a hint of smoke peeking through. Easy palate developing a signature peppery spice. The long lasting finish left me licking my lips!

Thoughts

Both display classic tequila attributes & are easy drinking.

If anything Bambarria just endeared itself better to my palate with a winning finish that had me sitting out in the Mexican sun!

Well – it’s the nearest thing to travel 2020 has allowed!
