Oro Azul Tequila Anejo
Anejos
Submitted by Tequila.net     April 03, 2007    
Bought 4/28/10 at a local market paid $40. NOM-1079, make some excellent tequilas, Oro Azuls' reposado is very good, this prompted the purchase. The bottle is nice but has stickers on it which I'm not a big fan of, but I don't mind if the product is top shelf. Had 3 oz.s from a 6 oz. shot glass, color is light amber, nose is light, agave/floral and alcohol. Fast running legs that gather quickly on the sides. Has a thin mouth feel... "weak" is the word that comes to mind. I'm left disappointed and unimpressed. The body is... well, watery. The finish is lack luster but better than anything else. Leaves a sight numbing and a burnt almond taste, virtually no heat. For the $ there are better anejo's out there. I'll pass on this next time.
