      The nose is fragrant but not dark & dense. It’s delicate but not thin or heavy. This Añejo is double barreled. They first barrel their blanco for 6 months in Mexican merlot wine barrels and then it’s rebarreled and aged for an additional 12 months in symphony barrels. A symphony barrel is a barrel made from multiple wood types. Corrido uses 3 wood types to make their unique barrels; French Limousin oak, Missouri white oak & Hungarian oak. There’s an earthy sweetness with hints of baking spices (mainly cinnamon), raw unfiltered honey, cooked agave, thin molasses and saturated oak staves. Some chocolate and tobacco sneak in too. This is a tequila that whiskey fans can also appreciate. - For a Añejo that’s interacted with so many wood types I can still taste the cooked agave. There’s notes of caramel and a dense combination of dark honey and Mexican vanilla. The barrel influence and some sweet pepper hit the mid palate while the baking spices and barrel tannins linger into the medium and sweet finish that has a hint of orange chocolate. Overall this is great additive free Añejo that I love sipping neat but I’d also like to try it in a Mexican Old Fashioned.
