A wonderful sweet nose of agave, citrusy fruit, and light vanilla. A sharp, clean entry, less sweet than the nose would suggest, but still some underlying sugariness behind the baked agave. A medium peppery finish followed by a nice sparkly after-finish of receding notes of spice and agave sweetness. This is an elegant tequila from nose to finish, its soft fullness and complexity more than making up for any lack of forwardness. A delicious blanco!
Tasted 06/19/15 from a Riedel Tequila Glass.
Aroma: Nice clean crisp aroma of agave, citrus and and a trace of alcohol.
Initial Taste: Creamy smooth flavors of sweet agave with citrus, white pepper, and fruit notes.
Body: Creamy and full bodied with slow tears on glass. The flavors are complex, yet nicely balanced with slight alcohol burn.
Finish: Smooth medium-length finish of sweet agave, with white pepper and herbaceous flavors. It finishes with a lingering minty aftertaste and a slight alcohol burn.
Price: RRP of $50
Presentation: The design of the bottle is unique, functional, and rather ultra-modern. It is rectangular shaped with a pour spout on the side and made from heavy duty crystal-clear glass.
Corzo Silver is an excellent blanco that is creamy smooth yet has a complex flavor of sweet agave with hints of citrus, fruit and pepper. It finishes a little harsher than I expected since it is triple distilled. It is not cheap with a RRP of $50, which is more than I want to pay for a blanco. However, I will buy another bottle if I see it on sale as I would like to keep it in my collection. For someone new to tequila who wanted to try a premium blanco, I would probably recommend Herencia Mexicana Blanco or Avion Silver instead.

This has to be one of the smoothest blancos I have ever had. As far as the triple distilled tequilas go, this one by far maintains the most taste and agave flavor. While it could go in a premium margarita, this is more of something that sips great. This, along with Sol de Mexico and Don Julio are my favorite blancos. The cheapest I have seen it is just under $40.
Nose: smells slightly fruity
Initial Taste: serious agave presence and slightly peppery
Finish: Short and ends slightly minty
Presentation: Points for the metal and rubbery stopper, as well as a thick, elegant looking bottle
