Tequila is the hot spirit these days and, like other food and beverage trends, small crafted and unique is the direction it's headed. Tequila Corazon de Agave Expresiones has a range of specially aged spirits that are beautifully packaged and make fantastic gifts for the holidays. The cylindrical bottles have rounded wooden stoppers for a warm, organic feeling. Corazón Tequilas are crafted of 100 percent Blue Weber agave, using artisanal fermentation and distillation practices. Traditional clay ovens, proprietary yeast and oxygenation are a few of the elements utilized to create these award-winning tequilas, crafted at the world class Casa San Matías Distillery in Mexico. I was happy to be hosted to experience them!

Flavor-wise, I tasted classic agave, tingling, warming, smooth, with a touch of spice, easy to sip, with a light wood aftertaste. They describe it as "Color: Rich Gold Aroma: Lemon Tea, Ginger, and Herbal Notes Taste: Creamy notes of Oak, Almond, and Vanilla".

Anejo aged for 19 months in Thomas H. Handy Sazerac is a single estate tequila with a deep straw color. I experienced a bright almond extract nose, with fresh hay. I tasted citrusy tequila flavor, but with a smooth swallow. It mellows to apple notes.

The flavor has raw corn and bite. It's smooth in the mouth, with sweet popcorn flavors. Many tequila lovers only prefer to drink blanco tequila, for that true, classic taste.
