Drink Review: Corralejo 99000 Horas Anejo

Corralejo 99000 Horas Anejo Tequila is a 100% blue weber agave Tequila. Rested in small (less than 200 litre) American oak barrels from Kentucky for 18 months, this is sweet, with a nuttiness and smoky notes.

Corralejo 99000 Horas Review:

Light to pale gold in colour with a small quantity of sediment, Corralejo 99000 Horas Anejo Tequila has a pale amber hue and a thin serum. On the nose is a light oily texture, with hints of cream in the background. Body is light, with no initial burn. After a mouthful, oily, rich and sweet with honey and cinnamon and a dry, toffee quality. After a few seconds, light oak flavour with hints of Soy Sauce and a subtle wood fragrance. Finish is medium, with a light oily, peppery and dry finish. The nose and the branding, is a hit in our book. We like this bottle and we like it for the tastes that comes from it.

Corralejo 99000 Horas Review:

Corralejo 99000 Horas Tequila is sweet, with hints of caramel, and mild spice. Body is medium, with a light spicy, peppery and toasty finish. This is a good Tequila. We aren’t going to judge it for being a well-priced premium product, this is not supposed to be a value branded Tequila, as it is both premium and a good bottle. We just enjoy it for what it is. Spicy, sweet and peppery from start to finish. A good Tequila for the money.

Corralejo 99000 Horas Review:

This is a nice tasting Tequila. It is sweet, peppery and dense. It is a complex tequila with hints of spice, but we think that it has a bit more aroma than taste. This is a good Tequila, but it is not award winning.

Corralejo 99000 Horas Tequila is a 100% blue weber agave Tequila. Rested in small (less than 200 litre) American oak barrels from Kentucky for 18 months, this is sweet, with a nuttiness and smoky notes. This is our opinion. We hope you enjoy it.

We are up front about this and we are not going to hide it. We love this Tequila. This is good for a number of reasons and the first is that it is a great tasting Tequila. Second, it is a dedicated, premium product, not a commodity Tequila.

We do not think that it is a must have luxury product, but it is a great tasting Tequila of exceptional quality, and if you are looking to taste a great Tequila that won’t break the bank, then this is a bottle we would recommend.

Tasting Notes:

When I initially reviewed the Tequila, I wrote that at the time, it was the most competitive tequila that Prime Tastes had tasted. Well, it is, but things have changed, and others have come to PC so we thought that a review would be appropriate.

Our next set of tasting notes is a little different than those which were written for the first tasting. As always, we will comment on the taste of the Tequila and then we will comment on the bottle. Tasting notes are the same as in the first tasting, with only the bottle changed.

Corralejo 99000 Horas Review:

This is an awesome Tequila and it is a good Tequila. It is good for the summer and good for the winter. We thought that the first tasting of the Tequila was a little better than the second. A second tasting confirms that it is better with age, as you will see in the tasting notes which follow.

The Tequila is sweet this is not a bitter tasting Tequila, but it is sweet. This Tequila coats the mouth with a light oily texture that is more of a feeling than an actual taste. The texture is not overpowering, but it is delicious.
