    Fruity, sweet, and spicy. Ginger, cloves, cherry, and strawberry are notable, along with some creamy chocolate and burnt caramel.. There are clear herbal and earthy undertones. There is a bit of green olive. There finish is a bit creamy. By the third drink, it tastes pretty good, but I'd appreciate it more without the hints of cherry menthol. There are a lot of flavors here, but I don't think they blend terrifically. Fruity and sweet with menthol is the broad description of this tequila. Starts off with some green olive on the nose and at the front, but it never overwhelms. The flavor of menthol comes through throughout the drink, but it is balanced by smooth and creamy toffee with hints of cherry and a notably cinnamon and white pepper presence. A vegetal backing is always there, providing a reminder that this is a tequila. There is a fair amount going on and the flavor develops well. I wouldn't call it amazing, but this is a unique and respectable tequila that I would enjoy sipping. It tastes a but on the reposado side, but that isn't necessarily bad. There is a bit of prickly numbness on the finish that is characteristic of clove or maybe Sichuan peppercorns. Caramel, toffee, some mint and cherry and chocolate. Fairly smooth. This is a good anejo, though not the best. It's better than Arta Anejo and not quite as good Don Julio 1942 (but close). It's fully developed but a bit mildly flavored. I would be happy to sip this any time. This is a classic case of tequila with subtleties hiding away. There is a toffee, wood element, but there are also mint, cherry, herbal, and spicy elements. It's interesting and generally tastes good, though interesting is its driving force of quality. It isn't super strong, but it is strong enough to hide most of the alcohol flavor. It's enjoyable, but I'd love to try an older version of it. Fruity, minty, spicy, rich. This is quite a robust anejo. There is a notable caramel presence that mixes with minty alcohol. Vegetal agave comes in for sure. This is a great representation of what anejo tequila is. The spearmint is a bit strong here but somehow it doesn't taste bad. The fullness of the flavor here isn't amazing, but it is quite substantial for a tequila. The spice is largely clove, which is surprising, but also nice in how it adds a bitter rich ess that blends with the 50% dark cocoa flavor. The hints of tartness make sense in the dark cocoa context. There is a little wood and hay but it is mild rather than assertive and in the way. This is a very tasty tequila to sip. It's decently smooth with some nice balanced flavors. It isn't the richest or most complex tequila, but it strikes a good balance with a nice hint of Don Julio minerals. I'm happy to sip this though I'd prefer something a bit richer.

    Aha Toro should be the gold standard by which other tequilas are graded. Complex taste that goes down smooth and leaves you curious for more.

    What an Amazing palate, rich dark cacao, light orange zest, pineapple, A bit of agave nectar and a light smoke from the brick ovens. aromas of Agave and Cinnamon. Super elegant and complex. if you're making cocktails or shooting this you're wasting a fine artisanal tequila. Enjoy neat or with a sphere of Ice(does not dilute, but keeps tequila cold). let it rest in your tongue before you swallow so you get 100% of this amazing tequila .
