Really nice nose, grass after rain and agave with a touch of citrus. A full mouthfeel that’s pepper all over and some cooked agave rounding it out. Comes in a bit hot, long finish all over the tongue. Falls just a bit short from where it starts, but overall a nice effort.

Little alcoholy, with notes of pepper and pepper. Will be good for cocktails.

Ripe peach, pineapple, lime nose. Sweet fruity entry as well, with black tea tannins. Good balance of sweet/bitter continues through the finish.

Blind rated. The Aroma is very nice and sweet, with hints of mint, citrus, cinnamon and cooked agave. On the palate it's fun with its pleasent spicy burn on the front and a nice medium to long agave finish. Really good and the price is nice too.

Chemical on the nose not much else there. Flavor was light with some sweetness of sugar. Poor finish, quick

Lots of green agave along with alcohol of course. After a few minutes in a riedel this blanco shows anise and black pepper on the nose and then in the mouth leading to a very long finish. I like it.

The aroma is very subtle for something high proof. I get notes of agave, pepper and a bit of banana. The flavor is hot but not overpowering. There's definitely lots of pepper and agave. As to be expected with a high proof tequila, the finish is strong and hangs around for a while.

pepper citrus nose with a burn that's spent some time at the gym. it's not overly inflated burn, but it'd there and gives you a heads up you're dealing with a man's drink. front powerful in nice pepper with grapefruit undertones aggressive but not angry burn. lingering pepper finish doesn't want you to leave. it's like it's afraid you'll forget about her and can't tear herself away. long soft but spiteful finish.

I'm a big fan of organic and overproof/still-strength blancos, so I always have this one on the shelf. I also love that they carry the 100 proof through the entire line. There is huge agave and pepper through the aroma, flavor and finish. Earlier lots suffered from distracting mineral qualities. Later lots are improving on this. The agave and pepper qualities are probably slightly muted over earlier lots as well, but those qualities are still big and bold. Overall, I think they are improving their process over time.

This is a decent blanco, but it's too plain to compete with the better houses. No agave flavor to speak of.

Aroma has strong earth and vegetal notes that clearly show through the higher alcohol content. There is also a slight aroma of bread/yeast here. Hot and spicy flavor hits right upfront. The bread-y aroma carries through in the flavor and has a slight sweetness. The finish is moderate despite the high-impact opening.

Aromas that are slightly minty, with pleasing tones of cooked agave and citrus. It has a sweet honey-like smell once you let it breathe a bit, and I suggest that you allow this plenty of time to do just that. This is a high proof beauty that is not for timid tequila drinkers. It is spicy and warm and has a long finish. I like it.

A sweet tasting tequila. Well balanced and easy to sip. No big pepper notes and subtle citrus.

Does every organic tequila have to taste like dirt? This one has a strong anise finish, a taste not appealing to me anyway, couple that with the earthy feel and I'll have to pass. To be fair this tequila may appeal to you if like black licorice. It was fairly smooth, but not for me.

Heavy alcohol on the nose and palette overpower most of the flavor here. White and black pepper are most noticeable with a slight sweetness. Couldn't finish this neat. Needed to add ice and a few drops of lime.

For the strength of the 100 proof it has a very smooth finish.

Beautifull unique aroma. Flavor and final are equally wonderfull. Of course it burns more than a 40% but there is no alcohol taste. Let it breath a bit and take smaller sip. Note of pepper, peanut and pine. The full tequila experience, not for beginners. Got the last bottle from the SAQ here in Quebec. 70$can

Tasted in a plastic glass on a flight to Belgium. I brought a 50ml bottle on board with me for the fun of it. Smooth nose of agave forward and refreshing aroma. First sips are smooth with a light bite on the back of the tongue after it goes down. This is 100 proof tequila mind you. It is smooth though. However, small sips recommended. Overall, it's good, but not a lot of flavor. A little numbing after a bit and not as much agave as the nose. I don't think this would be my go to for a blanco sipper, but it would make some kick-ass margaritas. I will try it again at home later in a Riedel glass. C+

Nice finish. Good for mixing drinks that you would give to your friends, not yourself. Or, good for first drink if you want light and caramel.

Dulce Vida is 100-proof tequila done right

Sometimes 40% alcohol (80-proof) just isn’t enough. I say this not because of any need to hurry up and get a fast buzz on, but rather that a quality tequila made at 100 proof (50% alcohol) can be more true to the real nature of tequila than one that is at

Dulce Vida is a unique, 'muy fuerte' 100 proof organic blue agave tequila

There are two words that immediately come to mind when tasting the lineup of Dulce Vida tequilas: fuerte (strong) and unique.
