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!

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.

I bought this in Indiana for around $57 I believe. Good value at that price. I love this bottle - very cool. The cork doesn't feel very tight, but it's definitely a sharp looking bottle and looks sweet in the collection... and of course that means nothing without great taste, and this has that as well. In all honesty I was a slight bit disappointed with this after reading the reviews, but that's not to say this isn't excellent. Mostly I just wished it had a touch more agave presence, and was a little smoother. Just about anyone who appreciates fine spirits will enjoy this, but IMHO it is a little lacking for a fine anejo. I reviewed Trago's anejo recently and that may have tainted my review of this because I believe it is a bit better for a tequila in the same price range. The aroma is very nice - carmel, a hint of oak, floral, and butter all of which are present in the body. Initial flavor is nice, decent finish. Overall, this is a very good tequila, in the upper echelon of anejos, but not among my very top favorites I don't think, although I could easily see some people loving it.

Tasted on 11/28/08 out of a snifter at home. THis is a very decent anejo. A nice complex body that is not to hard to identify. One of the best finishes Ive ever haed too.

Aroma: Mostly floral and caramel.
Initial Taste: A semi oily mouth feel, upon entry it's sweet with a mild bitterness, this is why it got a lower score on initial taste. First taste was floral and agave.
Body: A strong presence of agave, floral, with hints of wood and spice. Pretty cool!
Finish: A semi heated finish of long duration with a lingering of caramel and floral.

The presentation, while very 'ultra modern' is also pretty simple and seems unthought out. As always, just my humble opinion.
