I recently got my hands on a bottle of Corrido Tequila Reposado. I must say it has spoiled my views of other Tequilas tasted. I made Margaritas with my friend. She always stops at 1, she had 4. I guess it won her approval to.
From the words of Corrido:
Tequila Corrido Reposado is a single-barrel reposado, made from what we call the “Double-Barrel process.” First, the tequila is aged to “Taste Not Time” in once used Jack Daniel’s barrels. Then, instead of blending in other aged tequilas, as is the typical practice, we transfer or “rack” the liquid into a once used Maker’s Mark barrel to absorb the different flavor profiles. This “Double-Barrel” process is more costly and time consuming, as a CRT inspector must be present to reseal and stamp the barrel each time we open a barrel for sampling. That’s one of the extra steps we’re willing to take to make our product unique. This method is unique to Corrido and no one else does this in the industry.
Let me just tell you, what ever they are doing is certainly working. This is the Smoothest Tequila I have ever tasted. Now pardon me while I go make myself a Margarita.
