Tequila Corralejo Triple Distilled Reposado NOM 1368. Tasted in a Riedel glass on 1/15/09 at my home Tequila Bar. Very attractive collectable blue cobalt bottle. Light straw in color. At first I felt that the nose was somewhat compromised perhaps due to the triple distillation process with only a hint of floral overtones and shortness of legs running down the sides of the Riedel. My concerns were soon eliminated by the initial taste. The first sip starts with a tart yet sweet agave flavor followed by a light alcohol attack which grows stronger with a very pleasant peppery and herbal-like finish. I have allways enjoyed the Corralejo line of flavors and side by side the double distilled Reposado has a totally different flavor with a stronger emphasis on earthy agave and sweet caramel flavors. In my opinion this triple distilled reposado would pare very nicely with almost all types of Mexican cuisine due to it's ability to stand up and cut through the bold spicy flavors.
