Tequila Corrido Añejo

Tequila Corrido Añejo is a single-barrel añejo made from what we call a triple-barrel process. The Triple-Barreling process is identical to our Reposado "Double-Barrel" except we complete the aging process with a special proprietary third finishing barrel. We start to sample the final finishing barrel at 12 months and when it has met its desired taste profile and complexity, we bottle immediately. We age our Añejo to the "Taste Not Time" method, which is to say our Añejo tells us when it is ready. This is more costly, as CRT must be notified each time we open a barrel, but that's one of the extra steps we're willing to take to make our Anejo unique.

Similar to a Ballad, the Corrido is a musical form developed in Mexico, and specifically rose from a "Border Culture" along the Lower Rio Grande region, primarily between the mid 1800s and the 1930s. The Corrido became known as "musica de la frontera" (border music) because it was especially popular along the U.S.-Mexico border regions.

Corrido Tequila Anejo * Tasted May 2010 * Riedel Tequila Glass

Appearance: dark straw, golden hues - thick body and slow tears
Aroma: agave and light bourbon, hints of chocolate and walnut
Initial Taste: sweet agave and wood
Spirit Body: butter and caramel, earthy with hint of clove

Corrido's triple "single" barrel Anejo is a hit, and priced to sell.

The Corrido line is just a great line of tequilas. This is the best of the bunch. The smell, the flavor, the price, the presentation...this one is certainly in my top 5 tequilas overall.

Aroma: Sweet agave with some nice vanilla and nutty kind of notes.
Initial Taste: Sweet start of agave that gives way to a nice wood and caramel/butterscotch kind of taste.
Body: A nice thick tequila that continues its sweetness. It reminds me of Clase Azul quite a bit with the flavor.
Finish: This is where it varies from Clase Azul repo. The finish has a bit more spice. It's an awesome finish that just leaves you wanting another sip.

It was purchased for $40 at Hi Time and that's a great value considering the quality of this tequila. Everyone that I've given it to has loved it...and it pains me a little every time I give it away. It's just really good stuff.
