Proof66 Notes

Corralejo tequilas are meant to pay tribute to traditional tequila-making and prove this fact by baking their agave in stone ovens (versus more commercially efficient stainless steel steam ovens). Corralejo Reposado tequila is aged for four months in three different types of wood: French, American, and white oak, which gives the tequila its unique flavor.

I really think I may have just gotten a “bad bottle” here, because the general consensus seems to be that most consider this to be a very good Reposado. So maybe I'm being a little unfair? Unfortunately, what I had was borderline undrinkable. I tried like crazy to find something that this worked well in and it just never happened. I used it in place of vodka a few times and concocted a “Bloody Maria”….this was actually decent, but I put about 12 ingredients in my Bloody’s so it really kind of masks whatever booze you use. I also used it as a marinade for some spare ribs which worked alright as well. On its own, in a margarita, and in an old fashioned, I could barely stomach the drink. The oak tasted like rotten, moldy wood and instead of baked agave smokiness, I got cigarette smoke. I feel like I tend to score things on the higher side here, but I’ve found when I don’t like something, I REALLY don’t like it. There are too many other tequilas out there I’d like to try to think I would ever give this a second chance and buy another bottle. Sorry, 1 star.

An underrated and under appreciated tequila. This is what tequila should taste like. Best example of baked agave flavor to measure other by. In blind tastings that I have conducted, it fairs well against Don Julio, Siete Lequas, Casa Noble, and others. One of the best values out there. Solid sipping tequila, but I can see where it would be a fantastic mixer.

I prefer the aged versions of Corralejo more than the blanco, with its sweet, rather subtle fruity agave, vanilla with light oak. Not the best reposado i've had, but it's definetly cut-above many brands.

(4 out of 5). Some of the most intriguing oak aging I've ever tasted in a reposado. The nose is very sweet, with agave, oak and vanilla. It doesn't taste as sweet as the nose would suggest, but has a good, mildly spicy agave flavor with oak and vanilla. A great sipping reposado, and great in a classic margarita. $30 in my area.
