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.

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.

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.

A great value brand of tequila for all purposes.

Aroma: Good basic tequila nose. Agave, earth, spice.
Initial Taste: Agave forward with good sweetness. Light accent tastes of spice along with it.
Body: Semi-oily. A little buttery almost. Not as sweet as a lot of tequilas. this one is right in the middle.
Finish: A little too earthy for my tastes, but a pleasant burn and it's pretty smooth.

In all honesty, this is not a go to tequila for me for sipping, but it is certainly good enough to do so. However, this tequila is one of my very favorites for mixing because it has a nice sweet an complex flavor at a good price. It's easily available too which makes it easy to recommend to anyone. At $25, it's definitely a bottle worth keeping around the house for multiple purposes.
