Corazon Blanco tasting notes: How does it taste?

  • Nose: Agave, orange, black pepper
  • Palate: Black pepper, earth, agave, orange
  • Alcohol content: 80 proof (40% ABV)
  • How to drink: Cocktails
  • Similar to: Corazon Reposado
  • Rating: ⭐⭐⭐

The nose brings agave at first, followed by orange zest and black pepper; just a tiny whiff of ethanol coming behind.

The first sip is a bit hot and peppery, but nothing terrible, an earthy note comes next that gives way to agave, orange and a light bitter note.

The finish lingers with a bit of pepper and a bit of a bite on the way down to remind you that you are drinking Tequila.

Corazon Blanco: is it a good Tequila?

It’s OK


Not the best sipping Tequila as it has a light bitter taste and is somewhat peppery and hot yet provides good value as a Tequila for mixed drinks.

It has the right notes to make good Palomas on a budget, Margaritas or can be used as Tequila to shoot when in the mood for something with character.

Attractively priced as it’s offered for less than $30 which is a range in which Tequilas tend to be not that good as they hit with nail polish notes.

In summary, not the smoothest but something well worth having around when tailgating or looking for an affordable Tequila mixer.



The best options under $30 are Cimarron Blanco, Tres Agaves Blanco and Dulce Vida Blanco.

These Tequilas are versatile and can be enjoyed in both cocktails and as a sipping drink over ice.

Their excellent flavor profile is quite unexpected for a Tequila in this price range.

How to drink it?


  • Mix it in any cocktail of your liking as its price allows for experimentation.
  • Not the best for drinking on the rocks and much less neat.

Corazon Blanco Tequila: Bottle Price

Prices are approximate and stated in USD:

Total Wine$25

At this price point is hard to find a good Reposado so this is good value.

Alcohol content?

80 proof (40% ABV)

Bottled at 80 proof (40% ABV) which is the average alcohol content in Tequila.

Does it expire? does it go bad?


Tequila does not expire and can remain in the bottle for years to come as long as you store it in a cool place away from the sunlight.

The tricky part is that once opened it remains good but once you have 25% of the bottle left I suggest you finish it ASAP as it develops a funky taste.

I have no scientific explanation for this but I have lost some nice drams for not adhering to this simple rule.

Does it freeze?


It is quite common to store Tequila in the freezer as the alcohol content does not allow it to freeze.

Sipping it from the freezer is quite satisfying and better than drinking it rocks as dilution waters-down the Tequila. Tequila, as opposed to Scotch, does not get better when adding water.

Does it have sugar?

Low in sugar

Tequila, as agave spirits in general, is incredibly low in sugar making a great option for those on a strict diet. Just make sure not to mix them with sugary sodas as those are rich in sugar.

Does it have carbs? Is it Keto-friendly?


Tequila is carb-free but should be consumed in moderation on keto because it is alcoholic.

Does Corazon use additives?

Seems legit

Corazon seems to be a legit Tequila as it doesn’t hit with the artificial vanilla and caramel, along that Splenda-like note that is so notorious in fake Tequilas.
