Funky paramesan aroma with agave, fresh grass, and cinnamon—very unique. No lactic cheese on the taste however, how strange. The flavor is really nice. I’m getting agave, apricot, olive brine, bell pepper, minerals, and red pepper flakes, on a creamy mouth with a high proof kick. I expected not to like this because the idea of a funky aroma doesn’t appeal to me. But there’s no doubt the flavor is amazing. The price is high and the aroma is not for everyone, but this is still well worth trying.

Nose: In a word: FUNKY. Cheese dominates the nose initially, them agave and caramel right behind it. I’ve never smelled a tequila like this. A hint of berries and yeast, nice natural sweetness. Palate: Bold and aromatic, lots of cooked agave and butter are prominent. A little heat, but surprisingly mild for 50%. As I let it sit, it opens up and I get some caramel, and the berries. A little bit of cinnamon and some of that lactic funky taste coming through, but very nice and mild. Incredibly complex, I keep getting more and more. Overall: Shockingly unique and interesting tequila, I’ve never had anything like this. I could sip this all day, and I can already tell I need another bottle.

Another MBTC tasting. The thimble sized pours were entertaining...

Sampled at MBTC 2021. Aroma and flavor have heavy butter and parmesan notes. It reminded me of movie theater popcorn. A really interesting characteristic to have in a tequila, and something I'd never tasted in any other.

Aroma is a bit off putting in the beginning…. Needs a moment to open up….. full of agave in the mouth… some sweetness

The aroma was pretty funky, but once my Glencairn glass was empty, the aroma in the empty glass changed, and was very appealing!

The aroma is funky and good at same time (lactic/moldy cheese, while the agave is pushing through). The flavor and finish exceeds the aroma. Very unique!

Can’t add to the reviews already here. It’s a uniquely wonderful sip. Highly recommend.

This flavor profile may not appeal to everyone. I've mentioned the "funky" taste on the Blanco for cazcanes and in this expression it goes to a whole different level. It's kind of cheesy wrapped around agave and pepper and cinnamon. I think it works beautiful together. I really enjoyed this.

Unlike anything out there. Blue cheese olive taste to go along with a funky smell that turned me off initially but grew on me. If you like dirty martinis, this has your name on it.

I really enjoy tequilas that have that lactic aroma. This one hits the mark. I could sit and just smell this all night! Oily and nice buttery thick mouth feel. High proof has a bite, but in a good way. The finish is long and rewarding. Updated: after revisiting this one… very special.. I hope they will do another batch of this down the road.

malolactic fermentation on the repo added to this gives it an interesting nose of parmesan cheese, fennel, agave, olive brine, vanilla bean, Bosco, toffee and pralines. tastes doesn't have any of the cheesiness but instead delivers butternut squash, apricot, prunes, olive brine, almond brittle, cream soda and a slight hint of coco nibs. a really enjoyable and different joven. a must have for anyone's tequila collection.

Soo different from any Tequila in my library, delicious with a fascinating burst of complexities. the first joven I have ever tasted that I had to buy. Brian at the Tequila Ranch in Paramount Ca. knows his tequila. can't go wrong with this 100proof. very impressed. on the nose you get a sweet lactic scent, parmesean cheese and tomato paste. wood and truffles, lavender and light smokey pineapple. the palate is very peppery and warm. cinnamon, vanilla, oak, vegetal, the cooked agave is not over powered at all. mineral burst on the throat and chest. the finish is absolutely incredible, lingering, mouth watering sensation with no after taste.

This is a really unique tequila with a complex profile enhanced by the blend of valley agave (60% blanco and 7% 4-year XA), and Los Altos Reposado that includes malolactic fermentation giving a slight cheese/butter scent. 100 proof. I find the taste far exceeds to nose, and the medium to long finish is great too! Lost a point due to value at $94.99.

Very interesting juice! I’m actually addicted to the nose. Complexity abounds with this one … on the nose and pallet. Agave, funky cheese, wood notes, butter, pepper, cinnamon, creamy mouthfeel … wow! Batch 1.
