If you're familiar with tequila, you are familiar with NOM 1103, Tequila San Matias. The make a lot of prominent brands like Pueblo Viejo, San Matias and this one: Corazon de Agave. It's maybe more well recognized for it's oddly shaped bottle, but it's well distributed and commonly seen in bars across the US. I reviewed the blanco and the reposado a long time ago and even before the NOM change. I will tell you that the switch to San Matias seemed to do the reposado good. Let's see what it does for the añejo.

Price: $20-40/bottle
Aroma: Cooked agave, oak, light earth and caramel. Fairly basic and not overly sweet.
Initial Taste: Earthy agave is strong up front with some caramel and oak.
Body: The earth is still strong. Some sweeter notes and spice combine for good balance.
Finish: There's some more wood notes on a medium length finish. It's a touch bitter for my liking.

Overall, this is a decent tequila, but not anything that you need to rush out for. There's strong earth and wood notes that make for a bitter (and not sweet) overall profile. If you like that sort of profile, this is a good value buy. For me, I could take or leave Tequila Corazon de Agave.

I was disappointed in this tequila. I tasted it in a flight with Don Julio Anejo and El Jimador Anejo, and I really didn't even want to finish this one. I chugged it first so I could enjoy sipping the other two.

The aroma isn't especially great, and it's harsh on the tongue when it first hits. The finish is smooth but nothing like a truly smooth anejo should be. This is really more in the reposed class in my book.

Bought 2/22/10, paid $45, I always drink at home from a tall shoot glass. Can't say there was much i liked about this anejo... maybe the bottle but that has a sticker on it. Oh well, sounds a bit harsh I know but I'm just being honest here. To be fair the presentation and nose are not too bad but that isn't enough to compete with all the excellent anejo's out there. Pass on this one.

I almost always taste & review at home with my own bottle but I made an exception with the three Corazones during the holidays at a Mexican restaurant. This amber, yellow anejo revealed more caramel & oak in the nose & first taste than the reposado. Missing was the depth & power from aging I have come to associate with a better anejo. A nice caramel sweetness evolved along with a presence of smoky, spicy agave. The medium/full bodied tequila exhibited more sweet caramel flavors but once again, no depth. Corazon Anejo finished quicker than I would have initially guessed but did roll off smoothly. This was the smoothest of the three but I enjoyed the reposado the most & for the money, better anejo's can be found with not much effort!

Tasted on 08/26/08 out of double ball. This anejo was decent. I prefer the anejo over the blanco on this line. In my humble opinion, for an anejo, could still be a little smoother.

Aroma: Cinnamon, spices, and wood.
Initial Taste: Upon entry into mouth, its a little bitter. A thin mouth feel.
Body: Agave, caramel, spices, and wood.
Finish: A very heated finish of short duration.
