Corzo Tequila Reposado
Los Altos, Jalisco, Mexico
Corzo's iconic bottle holds a triple-distilled and double-aged Highland agave distillate. The double-aging is done in both new American and French Oak casks for less than 4 months. After fermenting with a proprietary yeast and distilled, micro-bubbles of oxygen are introduced to give a characteristic mouthfeel and lightness.
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 aroma and first taste are notably spicier than the silver but just if not more vegetal. Touches of serrano and Szechuan pepper lend to a very interesting and delightful finish and mouthfeel. Adding salt allows the tequila to open up florally like found in their Silver version."
