TequilaGringo: Corzo reposado's a solid choice because they're pretty easy to find and so much better than the typical tequila out there. Each bottle is 7-12 years in the making. They use twice the agave compared to most other tequilas. Though more expensive, they cut down to the purest heart of the distillate. The tequila is from the Los Altos de Jalisco area, and that higher altitude produces agave with a higher sugar content making for sweeter flavors. Corzo's also the only tequila to incorporate a second mellowing process prior to the third distillation. The double mellowing enhances the oak and vanilla flavors while maintaining the softness and smoothness of the finish. We found the nose to be mostly agave, Read more »
TequilaGringo.com Review: Tequila Tierras is a new tequila to the market that won a Gold medal at the 2009 S.F. World Spirits Competition, so we were pretty excited when their samples arrived in the mail. The blanco does not dissapoint. The nose brought in a very fresh, clean scent with notes of pepper and citrus. The mouth feel was silky, something we like in our tequilas. But the taste is what earned this tequila a spot on our best blanco list. It had the very real tequila flavor we prefer, and had a mixture of both citrus and vanilla blended in, not something you often run across. The finish was a good length and easy with a very light heat. Read more »

Tequila Gringo Review This one drinks like an anejo more than like a repo, is marketed sort of like an anejo, but my understanding is that some of it is aged 9 months, while other batches are aged over a year (you must age it over a year for it to be an "anejo") depending on how many times the barrel has been used before. Regardless of age, their process has created a winner. We REALLY enjoyed this tequila. It's one of our favorites to smell frankly, and the taste is not to be missed. We picked up vanilla, and mostly enjoyed it because it tastes like tequila with it's agave flavors coming in, where some other high quality tequilas almost don't. Add this to the list of great bottles that can be had for around 50 bucks. Read more »
From Tequila Gringo:
We loved this tequila. A relative brought it by on the recommendation from a store owner so we gave it a go. It sure passed the smell test, and we dove in. The first thing we noticed was the caramel and chocolately goodness. Vanilla was in there too. Smooth finish. A real treat this one is.
From Tequila Gringo:
This bottle didn't last long with us, it was too good! We found there to be gentle vanilla and caramel tastes along with delicious agave. A great sipping tequila that we highly recommend you try. This 100% agave tequila is aged in white oak barrels for up to nine months. An absolutely beautiful bottle as well makes this a great gift and a real looker on the bar!

From Tequila Gringo: Light yellow color and a vanilla smell. We like vanilla. Cause it smells good. Tastes pretty good too, and in the 1942 the vanilla carries into the taste. Read more »
