Corralejo Tequila Reposado
Reposados
Submitted by Tequila.net     February 13, 2007    
I generally distinguish 100% tequilas in one of two ways: As mixers and as sippers. This one plays to both. Of the dozens of lines I've tried over the years, Corralejo is very consistent brand across the different ages and distillations. My favorite is the repo triple distilled. This repo is not quite at that level in terms of smoothness and mouthfeel. This comes off with a heavier feel and more burn. A great mixer and a good sipper. I have served this to newbies as a sipper and they're hooked. Then they try the triple distilled and appreciate it even more. This repo is an excellent value, middle ground tequila. Unfortunately at about $35 it is a bit overpriced compared to similar value or bargain reposados. Many equally good repos can be found at about $20-25/750ml in Pennsylvania.

Not triple distilled, but still excellent
