About Expresiones del Corazón George T. Stagg Añejo Tequila
In May 2010, expert jimadors
from the Corazon Distillery began harvesting agave from the rolling hillsides of Arandas, which is situated in the Jalisco region of Mexico. Rather than clear-cutting the fields from the outset, the jimadors employed scientific tools in order to analyze the precise sugar content of the 80 tons of agave plants in Arandas. Once the sugar content had been determined, the jimadors combined agave with a low sugar content (a low sugar content will produce a tequila with a drier, more mineral flavor profile) together with agave with a high sugar content (a high sugar content will produce a tequila with a sweeter and more bold flavor profile) in order to produce a unique blanco tequila.
Once the tequila had been produced, it was fractionated and matured in three unique types of casks: casks that had been previously used to mature Buffalo Trace Bourbon, casks that had previously been used to mature George T. Stagg Bourbon and casks that had previously been used to mature Sazerac Rye.
Corazon Buffalo Trace Reposado Tequila is aged for over 10 months in casks that were previously used to mature Buffalo Trace Bourbon. It has an aroma of oak, caramelized agave and a hint of salty tang. Bold notes of fruits and agave dominate the flavor profile, and are complemented by touches of woody spices, black pepper and cinnamon. The finish is long and warming, with a touch of vanilla.
Corazon George T. Stagg Añejo Tequila is aged for 22 months in casks that were previously used to mature George T. Stagg. As a result, it has an aroma of caramel, coffee and agave spices. The aroma gives way to notes of oak, pepper, orange zest and lemon, which are well-complemented by touches of agave and sweet vanilla. The finish is smooth and long.
Corazon Sazerac Rye Añejo Tequila is aged for 24 months in casks that were previously used to mature Sazerac Rye. It has an aroma of strawberries, butterscotch and toffee, which give way to notes of caramel, roasted nuts, and ripe citrus on the palate. The finish is sharp and bold, with touches of pineapple and agave balancing notes of spicy rye.
