Jose Cuervo Black Medallion

Black MedallionWe just got an email about Jose Cuervo Black Medallion, and it's quite possible the "black" stands for blackout because we remember seeing this stuff a while ago (in a store? on TV? on the Web? damn you hazy memory!) but have neglected to cover it. Luckily, the fine folks over at Luxist didn't forget, and they've added a nice little write-up for you:

The latest addition to the Jose Cuervo line of tequilas is Jose Cuervo Black Medallion, a super-premium Tequila that will be available in stores this month. Cuervo Black is an anejo tequila aged in charred oak barrels. The new brand is designed to appeal to Cuervo drinkers as they, and their palates, age and mature. Cuervo Black is aged at least 12 months and the charring process on the barrels is designed to remove impurities and give the tequila a deeper oaky flavor. The new tequila sells for around $20.

Twenty bucks a bottle? If we weren't blacked out before, we will be now. We'll see if we can throw together a review for you, or if you'll have to pick the facts out of our slurrings when we call you at 4 AM after finishing the bottle. Yeah, we have your number. Learn more about Black Medallion at Cuervo.com or buy it online at Internet Wines & Spirits.

Thanks Steve.

I don't think this is 100% agave, which might be why it has such a weak taste and aroma. Disappointed.

If you use this in a margarita it is awesome!!

Probably by far the worst so called "Tequila" I've ever had. Plain and simple, it tastes like cheap bourbon with so little actual tequila flavor, it ought to be branded a tequila flavored whiskey. If you enjoy drinking tequila, please do yourself a favor and knock this one off your list.

im not big on tequilla but this is something i like, its smooth and i like it the best out of the jose line. but if u want a true "premium tequila" go somewhere else

This is not bad Tequila. It tastes like a mix between Tequila and Whiskey (the "aged in oak barrels" effect). I'll pass on the bourbon-but a good, "mature" tequila, I'll take it!

Ditto trent! This stuff is not like your typical tequila. It made me gag!! It is nastola! Cabo is much better, anything is better!!!

This tequilla is terrible. If you want tequilla, then drink tequilla. If you want something that's been aged in oak, get yourself a bottle of bourbon.

"Super-premium"? for $20? LOL

Unless they're talking wholesale, for that price it's not premium anything. Try a nice $60 bottle of Cabo Wabo white.. now that's a real premium tequila.
