Corazón Reposado Tequila
Los Altos, Jalisco, Mexico
Corazón de Agave Tequila was branded in 2002 by Sidney Frank and is now owned by the Sazerac company. Their reposado expression is aged in Canadian oak for 6-8 months before being bottled in hand-blown glass.
Tequila ReposadoDistilled from 100% blue Weber agave, it is aged from 2 months up to a year in barrels no larger than 20,000 L. Any type of wood is acceptable, although ex-bourbon barrels are most common. Reposado translates to "rested".
"The fruit-driven nose of the reposado shows much more vanilla that their blanco tequila. The undertone of white pepper is also less pronounced here. It is a very smooth sipper that finishes with notes of Marcona almonds. Mix with a quality tonic over ice on a hot summer day!"
