Review #2002 | Tequila Review #34

Distiller: Don Guelo

Bottler: La Venenosa

Brand: La Venenosa

Selection:

ABV: 42.6% ABV

Age: NA


Nose: Fantastically fruity and funky – think brie, apple slices, caramel and blue cheese. Ripe plantain, light acidity and ammonia, smoky and roasty.

Taste: Thin on the palate but loaded with complexity. Sour apples, funky paint and varnish, light pepper. Orange and apple slices, cream and greek yogurt. So interesting.

Finish: Long finish, lots of parchment, pepper, funky sour fruit and a load of that sweet cream and plasticity.

Overall: Absolutely unreal initial foray into these. The development of that funky yogurty fruit notes and parchment savory notes is wild.

Thanks for reading!

Rank: 7
