Tequila Toro de Lidia Añejo

Toro de Lidia Tequila was created for the "Fiesta Brava," the centuries-old Spanish bullfighting feast. Our Añejo is produced with 100% of the finest selection of Blue Agave, using spring water to ferment and aged 1-5 years in uncharred American white oak barrels. Toro de Lidia is oxygenated, chilled to 4 degree centigrade then filtered through activated carbon filters before bottling, which makes it one of the smoothest tequilas in the industry.

A Toro de Lidia is the thoroughbred of bulls used in bullfighting -- bulls with a natural instinct to attack. They are known for their valor and elegance, traits cultivated through centuries of controlled breeding. In the Middle Ages, knights would use spears and train with these toros as a form of medieval combat practice. Their servants, however, would fight them on foot -- a practice that would later evolve into bullfighting as we know it today.

Aroma: Agave & Wood...with a touch of anise.
Initial Taste: Earthy agave. A really nice start.
Body: Again, fairly thin. The body has plenty of agave flavor for an anejo and is mixed in well with oak, spice, earth and a touch of black liquorice.
Finish: A wonderful finish. Muted spice, but a nice complex mix of wood, agave, spice and again the anise. Really smooth finish as well with the medium length linger.

This is the best of the bunch of the standard mix. A really great mix of flavors where the wood doesn't take away from the tequila properties. As with all of them, the bottle is classy and the price is right ($19.99 at Mission). Do yourself a favor and get the whole line if you like lowland tequilas. You won't find better at the price point.
