Tequila Clase Azul Reposado

Clase Azul is an ultra premium, 100% Weber Blue Agave, Reposado Tequila. Clase Azul tequila is the perfect marriage between the finest Tequila and a beautiful handcrafted, hand-painted Talavera carafe.

It is produced and bottled in the Jesus Maria region of Arandas, Jalisco, MX from 100% Tequilana Weber Agave. Clase Azul is aged for a minimum of eight months in small oak barrels. We are using a blend of Bourbon, Cognac, and Sherry casks in the aging process. This aging period and the use of these different barrels differentiates Clase Azul and gives it an award winning taste profile. It has distinct, smooth flavors and aromas, as well as an excellent balance over the palate.

The bottle style is called "Talavera", which was introduced to Mexico by Spanish artisans of the Colonial period. Known as "majolica" in Spain.

Many US bars seem to tote this as their finest tequila, or at least near the higher shelves. It is good, and may be the best tequila they have on hand. I like it, I order it, I shall order it again if my favorites are not on hand. The flashy bottle gave me pause but the tequila itself is worthy of a good bottle, it's a fine fine option.

The taste is sweet and simple, no burn, but also little true tequila body. Share it with your friends who may be getting into tequilas but are a little on the fence.

Sipping through a shot of this will be pricey, but probably your best option at many bars so go for it.

Provecho!

Great nose, sweet, with a nice light touch of sourness and tartness. Taste is soft agave, cinnamon bun, and vanilla birthday cake with caramel pastry frosting. This is a very tasty repo, vaguely reminiscent of (dare I say it) Don Julio's towering 1942. Both exhibit somewhat similar sweet caramelly smoothnesses, but where the 1942 has fullness, depth, and complexity, Clase Azul veers toward soft dessert wine territory. (My only real criticism of it is its lack of any decent finish). I'm almost tempted to call it The Poor Man's 1942 except that the price points of the two aren't that far apart. If you're willing to plunk down for the Clase Azul, throw in a few extra bucks for the 1942 - you won't regret it.

Great presentation and a great intro back into tequila for those that shutter at the word. But for someone that has been drinking tequila for years I find this is pretty far out there. Way too sweet and more like a liqueur. It makes me wonder how many additives are thrown in.

Barely any agave and wood characteristics but tons of sweet caramel and chocolate. If you like your spirits sweet you will like this. If you like real and authentic tasting tequila then move on to something else.

Keeping this for the wife and her friends.

I was treated to a complimentary glass of this tequila at lunch today; it's not currently available at the LCBO.
This is a very smooth reposado. Like the others that have reviewed this tequila here, I picked up notes of toffee and nice agave flavour with little to no alcohol burn.
The bottle is beautiful.

Probably my all time favorite tequila.

Aroma - Sweet with sweet nose of caramel, toffee and agave.
Body - Medium. Not too light, not too heavy.
Taste - Sweet with caramel notes. Agave flavor comes through nicely.
Finish - Very smooth with little to no alcohol burn.

It's a bit expensive at $80-100 a bottle, but it's well worth it if you love to sip a good tequila. It can measure up to any tequila in any class.
