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 amber, yellow anejo revealed more caramel & oak in the nose & first taste than the reposado. Missing was the depth & power from aging I have come to associate with a better anejo. A nice caramel sweetness evolved along with a presence of smoky, spicy agave. The medium/full bodied tequila exhibited more sweet caramel flavors but once again, no depth. Corazon Anejo finished quicker than I would have initially guessed but did roll off smoothly. This was the smoothest of the three but I enjoyed the reposado the most & for the money, better anejo's can be found with not much effort!
Corazon Anejo NOM 1440 Tasted 2/14/07. The tequila is golden brown in color and has an moderate floral and earthy aroma. Once you get past the intensity of the nose, you can smell mild notes of fruit and spice. On the tip of the tongue the tequila is mellow and soft with a light agave taste. While the tequila has no bitterness, it has a hint of sweetness. The flavor has moderate agave and earthy attributes which are followed by mild fruit, floral, and vanilla. The tequilas finish is a short duration of flavor followed by a minimal alcohol feeling. Overall, I rated this tequila at the C level.
