Oro Azul Blanco Tequila

Blanco is 100% blue agave taken from the heart (pina) of the finest agave plants. Oro Azul Blanco Tequila is made from the sweetest part of the plant. It is also double distilled for the cleanest, purest tequilla with sweet, marinated olive and creamy vanilla aromas.

Oro Azul is produced by the Lopez Garibay family, which has been in the Tequila business for over 100 years. Established in 1921, their present ranch is located in the heart of the Tequila region, Los Altos, where only the finest Blue Agave is found. After five generations, the family continues to follow a traditional style, handmade Tequila production process that focuses on 100 percent estate grown Blue Agave and attention to preserving the original cultivation and distillation techniques used over a century ago.

NOTE: This tequila has been around for awhile, and this review is based on the current version. Older versions of this brand are considered treasures by collectors.

This has a very balanced nose, with a strong agave presence, and a hint of mint. A very soft initial taste of sweet agave, and consistent with the nose, more mint.

The body is nice and full, slightly oily, and coats the mouth very nicely. The finish has only a brief burn on the back and top of the palate, and enhanced mint around the tongue, with ultimately a smooth bottom-end. Very enjoyable, with a classic blanco taste that can be elusive with newer brands.

A nice presentation in a tall pyramid-shaped bottle of quality thick glass and a synthetic cork. This is a reasonably priced ($34 for me) quality blanco that keeps my interest. Definitely a sipper, not a mixer. I will have to try the repo and anejo after tasting this.

Oro Azul Blanco. Tasted on 6/16/08 in a snifter.
Oro Azul blanco was a very nice s uprise for me. A very pleasant aroma leading to a very 'refreshing' taste. At $28 a bottle, this ones a real winner in my book.

Aroma: A very creamy, vanilla, pear like aroma.
Initial Taste:I thin mouth tequila. Starting off with a pear like fruity taste.
Body: Followed by strong agave presence with hints of fruits and spice.
Finish: A very soft pleasant fruity, spicy finish of medium duration and no alcohol burn.

As a sidenote: The cork bottle top is REALLY secure and tight. Even after I opened it. Like I said, I really like this blanco. Lots of character!
