Light smoke and nuts on the nose. Caramel. A little more alcohol than ideal. Tastes like red hots cinnamon candy with a bit of cocoa perhaps. Has a long finish that causes some mouth numbness. Hot and spicy. A bit of an unusual Carmel popcorn/medicinal vibe at the end. Overall, not at all bad - especially for the price.
Triple distillation hurts this as it remove much of the complexity of the tall bottle 2X juice. Not offensive but no need to seek out.
Old, old, old bottle. Likely a blend of diffuser and roller mill now.
Nose is better than blanco, more pleasant sweet notes. Flavor wise is low quality. Amazed how I remember this bottle from family parties.

In the face of yet another agave shortage, one that has lasted for several years, Tequila has, against all odds, remained resilient. Sustainability of the category’s key agricultural product has long been a recurring problem for the industry.
The Tequila Circuit will take place in the Penjamo municipality, southeast of Guanajuato. The route includes stops at the Tequilera Corralejo Hacienda, El Rancho San Fernando, El Rancho Coyote and Bodegon de la Dolce Cita.
The three new ultra-premium tequilas from Fraternity Spirits include: Corralejo Reposado 1810; Corralejo Extra Añejo 1821; Corralejo Silver 1753.
This year the list is peppered with 100% agave brands that talk of terroir, single estates and tahona wheels. Now recognised selling points, these would have been confusion points in years gone by.
