Agave funk very present on this one. Cooked agave, wet minerality, buttery, touch of vanilla. 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, 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

Nose- baked agave, honey, dried herbs, butter, cinnamon. Surprisingly sweet and savory for a Blanco. Taste- caramelized agave, anise, stewed fruit, bell pepper, almond, and very faint alcohol. Unique flavor profile- especially for a high proof and unaged spirit. Creamy full bodied mouth feel. Finish- incredibly soft and clean. Value- um yeah this is an amazing tequila and high proof, and less than $60. One of my new favorites.

Aroma: I get alcohol on the nose with this more than most high proofs. Some fruit, like pear. Cooked agave and baking spices… almost like nutmeg? Flavor: Cooked agave, there’s a tangyness I’m picking up that I can’t put my finger on. I think I like it. More pear. A little minerality comes through on the back end. The alcohol doesn’t show up in the flavor nearly as much as the aroma. It’s a nice pop of alcohol but not overpowering. Finish: There’s a little bite on the back end. Agave comes through on the finish with a little more minerality and baking spice… little bit of that pear comes through on the finish. Overall: I like this tequila and would certainly drink it again. I’d get another bottle because it’s interesting to me. A little subtle on the nose and the flavors good but nothing really bold like I’d expect from a higher proof.

Very good high proof blonco that’s light on the palette and not a lot of heat. Review after 2 years: This is still a very good HP blonco that’s subtle. On the nose it’s very floral (like a yellow flower), cooked agave, tad bit of fruit. On the taste , great cooked agave, slight licorice, and pepper. This is a very manageable HP that doesn’t pack a big punch. This is one you could drink all day.

Aroma : Cooked agave with herbal, vegetal notes and some earth and mineral tones. Flavor : Tons of creamy, sweet cooked agave with butter, vanilla, and nutty undertones. There is also some pepper, cinnamon, and baking spices. This is the right amount of spice and sweetness, with a full-flavored oily mouthfeel. Finish : Long lasting with a more mineral quality than the initial taste, slightly bitter.

Aromas of cooked agave, wet earth, and minerals. Sweet, rounded agave and mineral taste with a light, lingering finish. For a high proof (49% abv) it is highly drinkable and feels very authentic.

Lote 1 bottle 608 Nose: Ripe tree fruit. Lime, citrus rind, bold caramelized ripe agave, root vegetables, earthiness and river rocks. Somewhat floral. Some herbal notes present: thyme and rosemary. Flavor: The mouth feel is explosive. It is teeming with pepper and brown spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, enfolded in big buttery agave slathered vanilla/almond creaminess. Almost salty. Finish isn’t as complex as the aromas & flavor. A hint of bitterness lingers.

Grand Dovejo high-proof Blanco is one of the best available. The phenomenal buttery sweet cooked agave and natural taste is outstanding. I put this in the upper echelon of high-proof natural Blancos.

This is a fantastic example of how good a high-proof tequila can be. Boatloads of agave, done right. Buy a case of this stuff!

This high proof is good. Not the best or exceptional. Just good. For the price, you can't beat it. On the nose.. Good agave up front. Citrus, cinnamon and vanilla notes. It's rather nice. The only issue I had was the ethanol heavy nose. It's a high proof, but good high proofs are not that ethanol heavy. The pallet has an initial hit of ethanol, followed by nice citrus, cinnamon and vanilla mid pallet. Finishes off well. Extra points on price. Highly recommend.
