Corrido Blanco Overproof Tequila
Destiladora de Los Altos (NOM 1412), Arandas, Mexico
Tequila Corrido Blanco Overproof is an audacious and powerful expression of the classic Corrido Blanco. Carefully crafted for those who seek a more intense additive-free tequila experience, this overproof variant stands as a bold counterpart to its cherished sibling.
On the first sip, I get a nice mouthful of green agave with traces of citrus and minerals. The white pepper and cooked agave sweetness kick in mid-palate and ride into the finish. On subsequent sips, I’m getting notes of lemongrass and jalapeños along with some enjoyable vegetal flavors. The alcohol proof provides a nice mouthfeel without coming off too strong or peppery. There is a nice peppery quality and the flavors linger. Overall this overproof is a fun sipper coming from Corridor’s master distiller, Ana María Romero and she’s done a great job once again!
