Aroma : Light agave with butterscotch, caramel, oak, honey and vanilla. Taste : Notes carry over here from the aroma, but with an extra nutty character, with some almond and cashew tones. There isn't as much sweetness here as in the Reposado. Finish : Medium in length with a little more barrel influence with oak and cinnamon.
Aroma : Cooked agave, caramel, honey, and vanilla. Taste : Agave, oak, caramel and honey. This has a very bourbon-sweet profile. The texture is "smooth" and fair bodied. Finish : Medium length with more honey, also some floral notes. This is an interesting one. The flavor is a bit sweet, but not in a sickly sweet additive way. This would be nice to have every once in a while as a dessert tequila.
Aroma : Agave, lime, vanilla, and some floral notes. Taste : Cooked agave, vanilla, citrus, and some black pepper. Finish : Medium length with a little more sweetness and black pepper than the original taste. Fairly uncomplex tequila, but compared to other "uncomplex" blancos like G4 and Alquimia, it lacks the rich, full flavor and depth that makes otherwise simple tequilas top tier.
The nose is cooked agave, whiskey, a little butterscotch smidge of vanilla and alcohol. The flavor wasn’t particularly striking for cooked agave on the front end followed quickly with alcohol little bit of butter scotch and the finish was black pepper and whiskey. Nice finish duration but then hung on a little too long with whiskey aftertaste long. overall a better than average anejo.
Do you like sweet ? Overall a well rounded repo, but I feel like the honey and sugar overpower the agave, which for me, ain’t a plus.
Long Island Lou created a video review of the Don Sueños Tequila lineup.
Don Sueños Tequilas are produced at Casa Tequilera de Arandas- NOM 1499 in Arandas, Los Altos, Jalisco. Tre and Kumiko Zimmerman are the owners, and they have Jose Aceves, a fantastic Master Distiller overseeing it all.
Ok so, Don Suenos gave Charlie Sheen a piece of their brand to promote it. Sounds funny, right? Charlie Sheen? But this añejo is actually legit and very solid! They claim to use an old Don Julio recipe, dont know about that, but its pretty damn good. Warm agave, nutmeg, nutty, cinnamon, butterscotch, slight hint of smoke, tobacco, etc... Great price point too!
