Tequila Corzo Reposado

Corzo Reposado Tequila - Aged in small white oak barrels for additional smoothness and flavor, Corzo Reposado combines the elegance of Corzo Silver with hints of oak and honey. To best savor the full flavor of this carefully crafted tequila, we recommend sipping it neat.

Corzo combines art and science to create the purest, most refined spirit possible - a tequila of extraordinary character with the full aroma and flavor of blue Agave.

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!
