This one comes from Casa San Matía a distillery with over 130 years of history operating in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico. They have long been a serious player, known for their uncompromising approach to crafting the best tequila. They’re lead by Carmen Villarreal who has has worked closely with the expert craftswomen and men of Casa San Matías for decades, honoring traditions while also spending big bucks in order to make the excellent Corazón tequilas that they do.
Crazy enough, this one actually comes from a barrel I picked out in 2020. It actually fell off my radar after months and months of not receiving it – I guess I just assumed it was a casualty of the pandemic and would eventually be worked out.
Unbeknownst to me, in it rolled last week – my own numbered single barrel – bottled and labeled with the crisp Nicholas Reserve name over the super rare green Reposado label. I’m not even sure they’re making this anymore, but if they are – I promise the price is nowhere near the deal I locked into pre-pandemic. Talk about timing too – right in time for cinco de mayo and spring. This is the perfect Tequila to drink by itself neat, on the rocks or even part of a cocktail, as it’s totally delicious but also available at a super juice price.

Like all of my single barrels, please don’t confuse this with the “regular” bottling. This is nothing like it in terms of depth of flavor and overall quality.
