In the Glass

Appearance

Brilliant, crystal clear.

Aromatics

The nose is rather pretty and more subtle than the blanco offering scents of baked agave, caramel, allspice, nutmeg and hints of citrus.

Flavor

The palate is in full agreement with the nose delivering a lush core that showcases the baked agave while becoming woody at times leading to a long finish punctuated by caramel and brown spices.

Intensity & Texture

Medium-bodied with a rich core that becomes drier on the finish providing a vibrant dose of acidity.

Cool Factor

A

I have been a longtime fan of all of the Tequilas crafted at Tequila San Matiås.

Value Grade

A

Corazón Tequila has always represented value and their reposado certainly hits the mark. At $30 a bottle for their repo (less at a lot of competitive retailers) it's a top value.

Analysis

This tasty and charming Tequila is produced at the family-owned Tequila San Matiås de Jalisco in the Los Altos (Highlands) region. All of the Corazón Tequilas are made with 100% Blue Agave and undergo a double distillation. The Corazón brand has always been solid and it represents one of the best values in quality, 100% agave Tequila. Their reposado spends 6 to 8 months in ex-American Whiskey barrels gaining a splash of color as well as rich caramel and brown spices. The Corazón reposado is quite different than their blanco.

How to Enjoy

Sip neat or use in cocktails such as the El Diablo.
