Dulce Vida Blanco

December 1, 2016 by Lamar Powell

Grown in the Los Altos highlands, 100% certified organic Blue Weber agave forms the perfect raw ingredient for this flavoursome, overproof tequila. The agaves are hand harvested, slow roasted for 20 hours, and open air fermented at an ambient temperature, before being small-batch triple distilled and hand bottled.  This is the way tequila is meant to be enjoyed: pure, uncut, just pure flavour.

Nose

It has delicate agave, wood and citrus notes.

Taste

Upon taste I was met with what can only be explained as a huge potent burst of fire followed by roasted pineapple, brown sugar and the lingering aftertaste of earthy agave. The second sip was much more tame as my palate gets used to the intensity; I noticed that this is a very thick Blanco with dominant white pepper and strong burning rage.

The finish is long and inviting, you completely forget about the fire that lite up your insides a few seconds prior to the sip. Even a small sip brings an untouchable wild attack. I shake my head from the intensity and continue to want to try it again. While this is a 100-Proof spirit the triple distillation process cleans the finish nicely, leaving a crisp recollection of the attack without the sour bite that you get from a 100-Proof product.
