Corazón Expresiones Artisanal Edition Blanco Tequila 2 year old
This blanco Tequila was briefly aged in ex-American whiskey barrels from the Sazerac portfolio, specifically those from George T. Stagg, Old Rip Van Winkle, Buffalo Trace and Sazerac Rye. The end result is a mild almond aroma and tantalizing notes of brown sugar, brown butter and nutmeg on the palate, with a plushness that's unusual for a blanco. Overall, this drinks like a whiskey, save for the jalapeño zippiness on the finish. Interesting and complex. Bottled in 2013.
