Sipping at uncle bobbys june 2024 Just opened. Out of the bottle. Corazon buffalo trace repo Barrel 12835 Bottle 4622 28-07-2014 Nose is nice sweet agave, barrel spices, fruity, pleasant Palate is sweet cooked agave, some oak, slight whiskey, barrel spices Finish medium, slightly dry Notes didn't have high expectations for this. But, it's better than I thought it would be. Didn't get any noticeable additives.

sweet cooked agave, cinnamon, wood (non charred oak) butter cream covered baked pineapple pastry on the aroma. some vanilla/butterscotch pudding swirl also hits the nose. nice warming on the tongue with buttery mouth feel. definite whiskey style heat on the tongue in first sip (welcoming and expected in this expression due to Buffalo Trace barrel influence) and flavor. it complements the cooked agave. not normally a fan of any aged expression that allows the wood to take the lead, but this particular expression tells you up front to expect it - and it delivers in a very well balanced way for this style. bottled in July 2014 and found it for $79.99 in 2021. I consider myself lucky. a few left on the shelf in this off the beaten path liquor store,ight go back to grab another. is it all agave all the time? No, but a fun sipper for sure. pleasantly surprised. my rating on TMM isn't based on comparison to other normally rested repos. it's solely based on a repo rested in Buffalo Trace barrels, and it's really enjoyable

What kills this for me is the price. $90 for a repo I understand is a special edition but is lot for me. In the taste sweet agave, soft going down well balance.

Perfect blend of Buffalo Trace and carmel tequila

The aroma is fairly mild. The notes of agave and oak are very subtle. I also get a hint of something slightly sour but can't quite determine what it is. The flavor is very peppery and also slightly oaky. The finish is very nice. I want to live it but it's not anything special to me. Maybe it's the Buffalo Trace barrel that makes it too oaky for my taste.

It's definitely something special. I like the idea of single estate tequilas and I see the value but I don't like spending $100 or more for a bottle of tequila.

Dominant aroma of fruit with some supporting floral aromas. Not really even a hint of oak in the aroma - none of the traditional vanilla, chocolate, etc. Kind of nice for a change. Not nearly as thick on the mouth-feel as the blanco. Nice fruit flavors and the oak that was not apparent in the aroma certainly shows up here. Taste of almond and black pepper goes well with the initial fruit flavor. Fairly long, warm, spicy finish.

A friend got a bottle so I don’t know what they paid for it. The buffalo trace finished corazón reposado was good and wasn’t what I expected. I didn’t know what to expect with the BT finish. Corazon is a good value for sipping or mixing. I was expecting more bourbon barrel feel, but the barrel finish doesn’t eclipse the repo tequila. It was nice and smooth. I definitely recommend trying it a d others that do special barrel finishes like this.

agave and butterscotch, almost a beam-like nutty essence to the first sip

I gave this a 72 score. Aromas & flavors are really enjoyable if you like whiskey. If you like tequila and agave flavors you may want to try something more traditional.

I like Buffalo Trace and I love tequila, so when I saw this I had to try it. Strong oak and pepper throughout, watery mouthfeel, some agave aroma but no real agave flavor that I can detect. Doesn’t taste like tequila to me. It’s good and I wouldn’t turn down a pour, but not something I’d buy again. Just not really my thing.

It’s smoothe and has a nice woodsy flavor but it’s not as complex as the blanco

Felt like my rating was a little harsh. The value hurt the score some, but make no mistake, this is a great reposado that I highly recommend. It is an extremely well balanced reposado that is hard to not like. The aroma, flavor, and finish are all at least 'very good'. Out of production, so of you see a bottle, pick it up!

I love this tequila with its aroma of oak and caramel. It tastes different to any other tequila I've tried which I guess is down to the barrel. There's a very slight burn but this is in a good way - not harsh. If you can get it at a bargain price snap it up.

Interesting twist on this tequila. The various barrels nearly turn it into something totally different. Excellent craftmanship. However, for the tequila purist, this is more of a whiskey, due to the aging and barrel treatments...

Gentle and pleasing authentic aroma. Super smooth, grassy pepper and lightly sweet caramel. Definitely a bottle worth having in the cabinet.
