Review #1681 – Corazon Tequila Single Barrel Reposado Blantons Barrel Aged

The Schtick: This is a reposado tequila distilled from Blue Weber Agave and aged in Blanton’s Bourbon Barrels. I’ve had several Corazon, but reviewed none, so this is long overdue. Let’s get to it.

Review #1681 | Tequila Review #14

Distiller: Tequila San Matias de Jalisco

Bottler: Corazon

Brand: Corazon

Selection: N/A

ABV: 40% ABV

Age: NAS


Nose: Sweet vanilla, honey, cream. Faint agave character, some pepper and papaya. Pretty bourbony with a hint of tequila character.

Taste: Thin on the palate, sweet cream and agave with pepper and a faint bitterness. Really interesting, especially how much pepper and mineral bitterness there is. ABV feels alright, still thin but not drinking hot at all, so thats nice.

Finish: Short, sweet and oaky, fairly one noted here. Not a ton going on, and a hint of that bitterness remains.

Overall: Overall, not bad, but it isnt performing very well, and there is far better reposado in this price range if you can get over the Buffalo Trace appeal.

Thanks for reading!
