Corrido EXTRA Anejo....
CORRIDO Extra Añejo is a very limited production extra añejo. Only 13,050 liters of this tequila were placed in a small lot of 58 specially selected white oak barrels. No color is added; the beautiful dark golden amber color is a result of the three years of aging, which gives the tequila the taste you may recognize from bourbon or Cognac—CORRIDO Extra Añejo is aged the same way they are aged, in charred white oak barrels.
Clove, butterscotch, vanilla and oak.
Initial taste is sweet agave and vanilla, then lemongrass and oak, well balanced.
Finishes full-bodied, round and well-balanced with good acid and black tea tannins, short chocolate and mint aftertaste, outlining the elegant and wonderful Cognac-style qualities.
Añejo tequilas must be aged for a minimum of 12 months. CORRIDO Añejo is an 18-month-old single-barrel añejo made from what we call a triple-barrel process. The triple-barreling process is more costly, as CRT must be notified each time we open a barrel, but that’s one of extra steps we’re willing to take to make our product unique.
Rich intense yellow amber with tones of copper and orange.
Fruity (cherry), herbal and spicy notes. The cooked agave is very sweet, expressing aromas of its sojourn in wood like vanilla, maple and burnt caramel.
Silky yet intense with a powerful personality.
Sweet, lingering finish.
Reposado tequilas must be aged for a minimum of 3 months. CORRIDO Reposado is a single-barrel reposado, made from what we call the double-barrel process. First, the tequila is aged in used bourbon barrels. Then, instead of blending in other aged tequilas, as is the typical practice, we transfer the liquid into a different barrel to absorb the different flavor profiles. This double-barreling process is more costly, as CRT must be notified each time we open a barrel, but that’s one of extra steps we’re willing to take to make our product unique.
The first impression may bring to mind the aromas of Scottish butter, nuts, maple, intense tones of cooked agave with a great vanilla, caramel finale and floral and herbal notes.
Intensely spicy (cloves and cinnamon) and similar to a pear eau-de-vie in its rich roundness and creaminess.
Silky mouth feel with sweet caramel and agave tones.
Corrido is produced from select blue agave grown in the volcanic soil of the highlands region of Jalisco. Los Altos blue agave is known for its higher sugar content, which provides this tequila with its characteristic great balance of crisp and floral characteristics. The agave used in CORRIDO Cristalino are slow-cooked in tightly closed stainless steel ovens and are double distilled. As with Cognac distillation, we get rid of the “heads” and “tails” and take only the “body” of each distillate, getting rid of the unwanted impurities.
Agave, light floral and grass
Initial taste is fruit and tea. Then agave, sweet and floral yet crisp.
Medium heat mouthfeel, long mint and floral aftertaste
