Nose and (especially) initial taste are almost obnoxiously vanilla. Body has more complexity and pepperiness. Finish is balanced and refreshing, with hints of cantaloupe.

Not a bad reposado, but overhyped and overrated in my view.

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.

I really like this tequila and always try to keep it around. It's generally very easily found. The price is right when it's on sale ($25-29 a bottle). And it makes some of the best margaritas around.

Aroma: Sweet agave nose for sure. A bit of grass and spice in there, but not at all overpowering.
Initial Taste: Not as sweet as the nose would suggest. A decent agave flavor with light aging notes of wood.
Body: Medium body. Some other notes start complimenting the agave like butter and oak. Nice complex taste on the tongue for a cheaper tequila.
Finish: Fairly short with a bit of extra burn.

The bottle looks nice, but is nothing special. The reposado is the best effort from the Corralejo line. For a well priced, all purpose tequila, this one is a winner.
