Tequila Oro Azul Reposado, NOM 1079. I received this tequila as a thoughtful birthday gift from my nephew a few months ago. Beautiful straw yellow color with golden hues. Agave/apple scents are followed by wood smoke, light caramel, & slight alcohol. The complex spicy taste is sweet agave nectar with a smoky caramel aftertaste. This medium bodied spirit finishes with a fairly long, slightly numbing effect on the tongue, fading away into a wonderful bouquet of smoky sweetness. Oro Azul Reposado is quite smooth even with a very slight taste of alcohol which, BTW, does not in anyway detract from the overall tasting experience. This is a reasonably priced, premium tequila worthy of the most discriminating palate & a pure pleasure to sip after dinner like a cognac. I can only imagine, at this time, what the anejo must taste like.
