Have you ever seen a winning streak like this? “El Ultimo Agave” reposado continues its proud reign as the mighty ruler of the $20 and under reposado kingdom! This week’s challenger was Mexico’s #1-selling reposado: Cuervo’s “Tradicional”.
Th’ Lip thought that this might be a CAKEWALK for EUA. Tradicional has a poor reputation as a “used to be great” brand, now fallen on sadder times. Surprisingly, the Tradicional brought it’s best game (re: a solid bottling of an uneven product) to the challenge and really put the EUA through its paces! This was one of the hardest-fought victories that EUA has ever faced on the “Whisperer” show. The Tradicional was a formidable challenger who featured a pleasant bottom-end taste of slight citrus and shallow sugar. Ultimately it was lacking an agave taste-punch while the EUA brought forth the agave and vanquished the well-funded Challenger. EUA needs to be watching its back however, as it’s sweet clovey-allspice flavor enhancement is starting to annoy.
But you cannot argue with success. For the money (and the TASTE) El Ultimo Agave reposado remains; “The Bargain Bottle Champion” – reposado class.
