Corralejo Blanco Tequila
Initial whiffs detect an alluring road tar/asphalt, licorice-like sweetness; aeration expands the bouquet by including smoky scents of cigarette ash, tobacco and vanilla bean. Palate entry is sweet, nearly maple-like and viscous; by midpalate, the sweetness turns intensely bitter, bean- and sap-like. Concludes sweet in the throat. - P.P.
