A good tequila with a great bottle and a unique story (reference below by another reviewer).

Aroma: Not a strong nose at all. A bit of sweetness, but not like most tequilas. Citrus notes come through as well, but they are subtle.
Initial taste: Light agave sweetness and citrus. Some caramel taste as well.
Body: Nice heavy body and the taste turns buttery and sweet. Very smooth.
Finish: A wonderful finish that lingers a long time on the tongue.

Whether it can officially be called it or not, this is a very good tequila. The bottle is striking and a great conversation piece. The price is a little high for what is in the bottle, but I would still call this a decent buy.

Color/Appearance: one of the darker anejos, amber with red overtones; a multitude of small, slow tears.

Aroma: reticent nose at first; caramel and orange peel, and the suggestion of brown spices emerging with time

Initial taste: decidedly sweet up front, quickly turning to heat and bitter orange

Body: very soft and light; reminiscent of an XO congnac; nice

Finish: sharp wood flavors and heat; fairly long

Presentation: certainly one of the most striking and interesting of any liquor bottle. You won't throw away the empty!

A really good anejo. For the price, it might be a super anejo, but whatever you call it, it's excellent, and a decent, if not great, value.

Unique Anejo made by European entrepreneur, Martin Grassl who has been embroiled in controversy with the Mexican government. The Mexicans have not allowed Porfidio a NOM number yet it is considered a rare and valued Tequila. But as Grassl produces Tequila out of several distilleries it's difficult to pinpoint where this Tequila is really produced. Has a deep colour, sweet, smoky, caramel taste and fair burn. Interesting bottle with hand blown cactus, while pretty, serves to spread misinformation about the source of Tequila.
