This is one of the better designed modern bottles on the market. The tequila inside is decent, but probably not worth the premium price that come with the image that this juice portrays.
Aroma: Slightly earthy agave with hints of vanilla, oak and ripe fruit (bananas and pineapple)
Initial Taste: A nice and simple agave and oak entry.
Body: Fairly light and oily. Fruit compliments the agave nicely and a spice/pepper note is added in as well.
Finish: Medium-Short finish with a slight bitterness of oak. Decent pepper linger as well. Not bad, not great.
It's a good and fairly basic reposado. The biggest knock is that it hovers around the $50+ level...and you can get a tequila of similar quality fairly routinely in the $25-30 range. The bottle looks great on a shelf and it's mild enough for the masses to enjoy. But for tequila drinkers, this will probably get a resounding: "Meh..."
This is a very impressive Tequila and in my opinion the quality is obvious. There are no surprises with this Tequila. Great bottle. Color and aroma are excellent. Finish is very smooth from the first shot to the last. No chaser necessary and no hang over what so ever which are the two most important qualities to me in a fine Tequila. An excellent product all around. For what it's worth I highly recommend it. I've only been drinking Tequila's for approximately 5 years now but have spent a small fortune and tasted just about every one on the US market. Enjoy!
A very good reposado, but not as outspoken as its bottle.
Nose: Pleasant. Wood and olive brine.
Initial taste: Woody and sweet with agave lingering in the background.
Body: Semi-oily and light.
Finish: A bit short, I thought, with a fade of caramel and wood.
In the end, it was a satisfying sip without being mind-blowing. I'd give it a solid A-.
I had been wanting to try this for some time. I was at a bar a couple of weeks ago and they had the Anejo- I tried it and wonder if they refilled the bottle with a cheaper brand. It smelled like turpentine. I had just ordered the bottle of reposado, and was dreading it being bad. When it arrived I had a taste and was pleasantly surprised! Good aroma, smooth flavor, very little burn- overall excellent! It's a tad on the pricey side in my local store ($56)- I paid $42 for the 750 ML bottle at HiTimeWine.net. I love the rectangular bottle, and the top has a waterfall-type spout for easy pouring. There is a leather cord wrapped around the neck, and the best part- the stopper! It is a metal topped cork which weighs a good 1/4 pound. Very nice feel. I'm glad I had ordered it before I tasted the one at the bar! Now I'm sure I got ripped off!
Corzo Reposado NOM 1487. Tasted 2ozs. neat in a Reidel at my home Tequila Bar on 2/23/09. Color: Pale champagne Aroma/Nose: Light alcohol & sweet oak. Initial Taste: Earthy agave & black peppercorn. Body: Light oily feel on the tip of the tongue with silky smooth long legs running down the sides of the Reidel. Finish: Intense and very sweet agave flavors with agressively long finish of fruit and mild smoke. Smoothness: With the velvety texture and exceptional smoothness of this reposado, I would not hesitate to offer this as a top shelf reposado to any afficionado. Quality/Price: Avg. price range in my area is in the high $40's. Very reasonable for this type of agave spirits. Presentation: Very distinguished. Displays nicely with elegant pourer.
Wonderful! Colour of straw or "Champane". Long legs, betraying sweetness.
A hearty Agave start & nose. Delightful finish without the alcohol burn.
I had this neat in a tall shot glass with some home made Sangrita on the side.
This would be a deadly drink chilled...
Tasted in a rocks glass on February 23, 2008 showing lasting long thunder thigh legs on the glass.
Aroma: heavy wood and slight smoke
Taste: black licorice with a light body, a finish with a smooth burn.
A nice light reposado neat. A good reposado to sip or mix in a cocktail. The bottle is very sleek with it's unique waterfall faucet pour and metal/cork stopper.
Corzo Reposado NOM 1487 Tasted 11/18/2007: Color reminiscent of Champagne. Legs strong and oily holding up to time with slow but pervasive branching on the low end. Smells of honey then oak on the rise from mid-glass to top rim. Robust agave start, peppery swallow and sweet finish.
Corzo Reposado NOM 1487 Tasted 12/29/06. With a pale yellowish golden color, Corzo Reposado has intense aromas of floral, earth, and spice. Moderate aromas consist of fruit and smoke. The tequila has no bitterness to it and a semi sweet aftertaste. Initial flavors are intense agave, earth, and floral. There are also moderate spicy and fruity flavors. A slight tingly alcohol intensity and a medium duration of flavor bring this tequila experience to an end. This tequila received the rating of A-/B+.
