Tequila Aha Toro Reposado

Tequila Aha Toro Reposado is an excellent Tequila made from 100% Agave. Its smooth, delicate aroma, amber hue and incomparable flavor make it a beverage for true connoisseurs. Such an outstanding tequila deserves an outstanding presentation, which is why it is bottled in a unique, handcrafted piece of blown glass.

Also handcrafted by Mexican artisans, the bottle's rustic label adds the final touch that makes it a true work of art both inside and out.

The Tequilana Weber Azul variety of Agave plant used by Destilados Olé to produce its tequilas, is grown in the Highlands of Jalisco, at 2100 meters above sea level and just outside of Arandas. It is a cold, semi-dry zone, the ideal environment for our raw material. The climate and soil conditions keep the agave cool, lending it its distinctive aroma and flavor and enriching it with the sugars and nutrients of this privileged land.

The nose has alcohol, but not acetone or anything unpleasant; I don't know how long this bottle had been open. There is some agave, but mostly tropical fruit and spices like anise - very typical 1079 aromas. Upon entry, it is very tingly on the tip of the tongue, yet sweet with more fruit, spice, and now sweet spearmint. Body is medium oily and feels quite nice. The finish has a lingering heat and a vegetal aftertaste that sneaks up - a nice surprise.

The burn and intense flavors may not be for everyone, but for an experienced tequila drinker this really hits the mark. And for the price, you will be hard pressed to find a better, more complex, reposado. It is kind of an odd shaped bottle that isn't the most functional, but I can overlook that for good juice.

A really nice reposado in all aspects.

Aroma: Agave, roasted nuts and spice (cinnamon).
Initial taste: A light sweetness along with spice.
Body: Light, semi-oily body. All of the flavors work well together for a nice overall flavor.
Finish: Light alcohol burn that is very pleasant. Spices and agave flavors linger nicely as well.

Aha Toro is a great brand. The bottle looks great and is very distinctive. The plastic stopper is a poor addition...real or synthetic cork would have been better, but that's just nitpicking. This is a very good juice.

Tasted 15.06.2010 in a Riedel Tequila tasting glass.
Aha Toro Reposado lot #190
Complex aromas of oak, butter, a whiff of cinnamon and peppercorns.
The mouthfeel is quite thick and i get a distinct peppery feel.
The Tequila reminds me abit about the 10 year old Talisker.
Very little burn and a nice, quite sweet aroma after the peppery notes has faded.
Almost floral. Very delicate.
Beautiful handblown bottle, not a fan of the synthetic stopper, which requires too much effort to get on and off.
A very good reposado indeed.
