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.

I found this reposado from Corzo to be quite distinct and very good. Every aspect of this tequila is similar to the Corzo Anejo, but is more subdued and not as complex nor rich, which is completely expected given that it's not aged as long. Unlike the anejo, the bottle does not come in a fancy package and is rather sold as a loose bottle. It's damn pretty to look at, and equally as good to sip if you're a reposado fan! I recommend it wholeheartedly!
