According to Larry Richardson, a fine spirits consultant from Spec's Wine, Spirits & Finer Foods, "What separates Toro de Lidia from the rest of the pack is the way it is made. Most aged tequilas are stored in old whiskey barrels, which yields a much heavier bodied darker tequila with a bent towards the cinnamon, clove and cardamom profiles. Toro de Lidia uses uncharred American White Oak barrels and that yields a beautiful, soft finish with lighter bodied floral and fruit notes. Instead of covering up the agave, it supports it and yields a better balance. This gives Toro de Lidia a Brandy or Cognac mouth feel."
