Corazón Añejo Tequila
Los Altos, Jalisco, Mexico
Allowed to age a full 2 years in American oak barrels, Corazon is estate-cultivated, distilled and bottled at one of the few family-owned agave estates in Jalisco. This allows the brand to convey a "homemade" taste to its followers. After the second distillation oxygen is infused into the distillate to give it a lighter but fuller body.
Tequila AñejoDistilled from 100% blue Weber agave, it is aged for at least a year in barrels not to exceed 600 liters. Any type of wood is acceptable, but ex-bourbon barrels are most common. Añejo tequilas are also known as "aged" or "extra aged".
"True notes of cooked agave and oak lend to a fruity pineapple at the end of the nose. Then the first sip smacks you in the face with white pepper and more oak followed by soft notes of tobacco and mint. Some sweet spice notes appear on the finish as it ends just a touch bitter and dry. Would do well to pair with a sangrita."
