    Have any of you seen or heard of this.........?

    http://www.expresionesdelcorazon.com...es.php?hgm=1_4


    Just saw these at Total Wine. $90. Interesting. Weird to see Winkle, Stagg and the Sazerac brands on tequila bottles. Personally not big on tequila, but one of my boys hooked me up with a chilled shot of another brand that was aged (slightly) in scotch casks. Gotta say, pretty damn good. Very nice aftertaste. Different for sure. Amazing what is aged in what these days. Pretty soon we will be able to buy beer aged in bourbon casks. Oh, wait....

    I actually like that, too. Fun stuff!

    Pretty well all tequila is aged in ex-bourbon casks.

    I tasted these, and they're darn exceptional. I much preferred the Stagg barrel.

    Corazon is "imported" by Sazarac.

    Solid tequila for the $$ on the regular corazon.

    Great use of marketing by Corazon / Sacarac though I'm not a tequila fan myself.

    Some prior discussion of this down on the dark side in the tequila forum.

    I like my tequila without any age. Maybe I am weird, but the more it is aged it looses the profile I want from it. It seems that it is just marketing to get some high end whiskey names on more labels.

    I heard about these a while back. I haven't seen them in my neck of the woods. I would be definitely interested. Although I've never had a good experience with tequila in hindsight...

    A good friend of mine who is a huge tequila nut tried all of these with friends the other night and said the blanco was the best one.

    If you're a bourbon fan, aging tequila in a Stagg or WLW barrel doesn't make much sense because most of the flavor will have already come out of the barrel. It would be better to use a barrel from a 4-year whiskey that still has some life left (if you want that bourbony flavor)
