This is an underrated top-shelf tequila. A quietly forward sweet/spicy sour/fresh floral nose. Taste has light sweetnesses beneath a very tasty agave. Soft vanillas and caramels remain on the tongue long after a terrific peppery finish and after-heat. This is when you realize you're drinking a beautiful thing. This anejo is subtle and complex, something you may initially want to discard as being too undefined or too not-enough. But it's a surprise. This is a tequila to sip and ponder on, as the nuances make themselves more and more apparent with every pour. The bottle's curious monolith design turns out to be a perfect representation of what's inside. This is an excellent tequila.
Until I tasted this Tequila I was not a big fan of Anejo's in general but I am now convinced when made correctly they can out perform all others. Amazingly smooth. Taste and aroma were very enjoyable and at the price paid I compare it to other Tequila's i've paid 3 times as much for... The dark glass bottle adds character as if this product needs it. Enjoy!
A solid Tequila but without anything special except the presentation. The initial taste quality but that is followed by a very nice finish that is much better than average. I do tend to keep a bottle of this around for friends who enjoy a good tequila and like something not far off the beaten path.
Bought 1/21/10 $55, sampled out of a 2 oz shoot glass. To me this is a tequila I'll give to a newby, but nothing i'd serve to impress. It has a bit of an identity crisis for an anejo. It is very smooth but there are no risks taken with regard to taste. It is more like a reposado. Nice bottle, but I cant say i'll buy it again.
Corzo Añejo is a fantastic Tequila that has great flavor and a wonderful finish. I drank this out of a cognac snifter, and enjoyed the bottle over the corse of 2 weeks.
I found the immediate nose to be floral with a hint of alcohol burn. The burn was very pleasant and I had the inspired thought that sometimes a little burn is good. If something is to smooth or to harsh, that can get a little boring. But, this tequila had a complex nose and I enjoy it before I even began the drinking of it.
Once, I took a sip, i rolled it with my tongue and breathed little bubbles of air into my mouth( for a bit of "decanting").
Epic! The first flavor that hit me was a calm presentation of Agave. Sweet, and sunshine bathed Agave, filled my pallet and then began to swoon into the dynamic flavors that were there, within the experience.
Cactus, earth and a bit of zest were found in its finish.
Over all, this tequila is amazing for the price point. With a well defined drinking experience, and fantastic bottle presentation, Corzo shines in a market blown apart by a price war.
