We’ve been writing about Corazon’s special edition tequilas, that are aged in a few of Buffalo Hint’s most prized whiskey casks, for a strong 9 years. Not like the Buffalo Trace Antique Collection, the tequilas change from yr to yr. 2013 — when this collaboration was launched — is the final time we tasted one which frolicked in George T. Stagg barrels. Like that 2013 launch, this one’s additionally a 22 month previous anejo that spent its complete getting old time within the Stagg casks.

Whereas Corazon launched 4 tequilas this yr (together with one aged in Weller and one in Elmer T. Lee barrels, plus a blanco — you’ll be able to see all of them within the picture above), we solely obtained this one for overview. So let’s dive in. Notice that per the label this was really bottled in July 2020, suggesting that this inventory may typically be sitting round and that the final couple of years of releases are all from the identical manufacturing batch.

By no means thoughts that, although. That is actually a stunning tequila that showcases how a high quality barrel can actually change the sport on the subject of getting old. The Stagg barrel have to be fairly previous and spent of its woodiness, as a result of the completed tequila is a pale shade of yellow — frequent for this collection. In lieu of depth, the tequila reveals delicacy and nuance, with notes of buttered popcorn, caramel flan, and grinds of white pepper on the nostril. Full of life, with floral notes — barely dried — rising because the tequila develops.

On the palate, no large surprises, although the pepper feels stronger, tempering the sweeter qualities within the spirit. Baked apples, laced with butter, vanilla custard, and a light-weight squeeze of lemon dominate, brown sugar notes lingering properly into the prolonged, supple end. Gentle on its ft — once more, this does not evoke Stagg whiskey within the slightest — the end is creamy, candy, and alluring, crème brulee made liquid.

All instructed, it’s one other prime shelf anejo from this at all times thrilling collaboration.
