Agave funk very present on this one. Surprisingly soft on the palate for 98proof, sweet tropical fruit presence matched with biscoff cookie like savoriness. With a finish that just keeps on giving long after your sip.

On the nose, loads of agave, wet stone, lime and general citrus notes. A nice earthiness to it, but not overly “dull”, if that makes sense. Definitely minerals and a ‘green’ vegetal like note. Good nose. As it opens up more, there’s a fragrant, aromatic fruity sweetness. The palate is immediately hit with a spiciness, and loads of agave. Lots of minerality, and a very juicy citrus hit. Some very clear cinnamon, pineapple rind, and as it opens up, there’s a nice fruitiness to it. Damn good stuff from Gran Dovejo. Theres a lot of complexity here, it opens up so much. I may do a 2nd review on it later on because this keeps evolving for a while. I adore high proof tequilas, and this immediately shot up to the top 3 for me. Killer value at $48, definitely up there with Tapatio 110 and Fortaleza SS.

Cooked agave up from with some citrus and minerality. Clean smell … wet earth … cooked agave with black pepper.

Cooked agave, minerality and black pepper on the nose with a light smell of citrus, like a citrus peel… cooked agave on the tongue with some initial heat, because of the high proof. Black pepper also present with a citrus finish
