Corrido single barrel reposado. Very nice! Similar notes to what I sensed in the regular Repo—Butterscotch, grapefruit, barrel spice, oak, agave. Nice tears, tingle and medium finish.
Nose brings a sweet grassiness and some agave. Really that almost creamy but grassy note is the most prominent note. Lemon custard notes, very “rounded”. On the palate, it’s agave, some brininess, a touch of olives. Surprisingly sweet but not cloying by any means. Overall super solid offering. I definitely enjoy this much more than the añejo. I’d love a high proof version of this. I won’t stock the aged expressions but I’ll probably keep the blanco around.
Tequila distilleries can differ from each other in many ways. So we used our database to find out which distilleries are creating tequilas that score highest among users of the Tequila Matchmaker app.

During the time of U.S. Prohibition, the Corrido, a musical form of Mexican folklore, often honored the tequilero, or tequila smugglers, who gained popularity along the border. The "smugglers" of Corrido tequila are hoping for a similar popularity.
Last week at the Indy Spirits Expo in San Francisco, I had the chance to try the new Tequila Corrido.
