Alright...Corazon Reposado. Initial nose has a bright and peppery smell.Initial taste was also bright and oak filled with a secondary white pepper note with moderate agave flavor. Very good body but a little thin for what I'm used to in a reposado. Moderate smoothness but I've had smoother at the price. I don't do an initial response on enjoyability...I give it time and Corazon grew on me in time. Although not a great sipping tequila, it mixes well and in this regard, is a highly enjoyable tequila. At $25 per bottle, I would buy again but for the price there are better options. Presentation?... I liked the old packaging rather than the new bottle that it presently comes in.Still...not a bad choice.
Corazon Reposado is an effing beautiful colored tequila in a fantastic bottle, it costs more than a lot of others, it tastes clean and legit, and it's one of the most endearing tequilas I've had. That's it.
I wasn't all that excited about this tequila coming in because I really didn't care for the blanco. But this reposado surprised nicely with a far less harsh and much more complex flavor.
Aroma: Agave, Earth, Honey and a little bit of smoke.
Initial Taste: Light agave sweetness with a hint of grassy flavor.
Body: It's a very light and thin reposado. Earth and spice come through a bit more in the body.
Finish: A nice complex finish and linger. The spices come through with hints of baking spice and cinnamon. The smoke and pepper finish lingers for a decent time with a little pleasant amount of heat.
All in all, a very nice tequila. Add in that you can find it for $25 or less pretty regularly and that the long neck bottle is pretty cool...and it's one that pretty much everyone can enjoy.
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 light brown, golden, yellow tequila exhibited slight wood & vanilla aromas which were also apparent in the initial taste. A nice spicy aged sweetness evolved into smoky wood & nutty flavors. The medium finish rolled across my tongue & ended at the back of the throat with soft dissipation resulting in a smooth tasting experience. Corazon Reposado is a better bargain than the blanco however there are better reposado's on the market for less money.
this is my favorite tequila I can find around town pretty regularly, which is important to me.
I love the finish - the way it lingers in the back of my throat for a nice time after sipping some down.
anejo is just slightly better, but I just don't see it that often to buy.
my overall favorite.
