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

This is one of the oldest and most authentic tequilas around. What sets it apart are the strikingly floral nose, the strong initial agave taste, the extremely thick body and lastly the quick transition from brief pepper to a smooth finish. This Reposado blows others three times it price out of the water. This tequila is excellent for both shots (because it goes down smooth) and as a sipper because it is fairly complex but not overwhelming. If your end game is to make Margaritas you should go with the blanco from this line, as it is less complex. In my opinion this and Chinaco are the two best reposado values on the market. You should never pay over $25.

Tasted on 12/23/12 from a Reidel glass. I'm pleased to give this tequila a pretty good review because I'm trying it again after almost 2 years ago getting a corked bottle. That's a nasty taste I never want to remember, but Corralejo was one of my "first loves" after wasting my youth on Gold crap from a distillery whose initials are JC. I am happy to renew my love affair with Corralejo because it's a fine all-purpose juice at a good price point. I purchased the 750ml bottle from Total Wine and More for $24.95 (reg. price).

I can sip it or make margaritas; it's fine with me. It has a strong vanilla smell and taste, but with pepper also. Some others say it's fruity, but I can't say that. That's fine with me because I never liked fruity wines either. It has a fine aftertaste; not too harsh, but with just enough kick. I don't want to burp it up two hours later and I don't do that with this brand. Overall, it's very enjoyable and I like the bottle very much although because it's tall I can't put it with my other liquor. So I told my wife it's time to move. Salud.

Very Thick and sweet. Heavy initial agave taste. Very easy to go down which is why i rated the finish so well. Great for sipping. Not an overwhelming aroma. Presentation is average. Highly recommeded for larger social events as I could see many people liking this tequila.
