Color- Pale straw.
Aroma- Sweet agave with oily caramel, and a slight pepper finish.
Initial Taste- Oily, buttery, semi sweet agave, very mute.
Body- Lingers on your palate with caramel, and peppery agave.
Finish- Finish is short and sweet, more of a low to medium body.
Enjoyability- This tequila is a solid anejo for the price. I prefer a fuller bodied anejo. I suspect they are re-using there barrels several times.

Purchased a bottle after trying the flight with a rep. For the price at about $60 a bottle it is good, but there is better quality products around the same price.

I really liked the repo, so was looking forward to the anejo, but this was a bit of a disappointment in the end.

Loved the nose on this: sweet, fruity, a hint of bubblegum?. There was also a bit of caramel, oak, and mint - a lot going on. Once in the mouth, bitterness took over the sweetness and fruit, and maybe a tiny bit of sourness. There was a slight tingle on the tongue. Body was thin. Finish was quick and dry with tannins and continued bitterness.

This anejo started so promising with a great nose, but lost me once it hit my mouth. If this were a budget or bargain brand, it might be more tolerable, but in this price range I expect better.

Bought 1/10 on the advise of a friend, paid $60.00. Sampled from a 6 oz shot glass, neat. Aha Toro Anejo NOM-1079, first thing you'll notice is the fantastic bottle, it's a beautiful red with a stamped metal insert/label and a very nice synthetic cork that does a good job of closure. In the glass this anejo is a nice amber, the nose is weak, minimal agave and no alcohol. Leaves fast legs and forms small tears very quickly. Aha Toro is medium thin in the mouth and the first sensation is a sour note quickly followed by the alcohol burn that slowly begins to form on the roof of the mouth. Nice heated finish that has enough staying power to numb the tongue after a few oz's. Leaves a oak tinge in the mouth. Aha Toro is not real complex, and I'm not a big fan of sour in tequila or the fact that the nose is so faint. Presentation is the big draw here, after that it is down hill from there. I'll keep the bottle, but won't buy again.

Way cool bottle led me to try this tequila. Unfortunately the presentation was better than the delivery. It was a bit flat on the taste, almost sour with weak body.

It would do fine for a tequila at a lower price...but not at the $9 a shot it was going for when I tried it...
