Review #2011 | Tequila Review #36

Distiller: Don Guelo

Bottler: La Venenosa

Brand: La Venenosa


ABV: 40.4% ABV

Age: NA

Nose: Oh yes. Sweet cream, tons of vibrant roasted agave, coconut reduction, red wine vinegar, balsamic, brie and apples once more. Fantastic!

Taste: Sweet at first, turning fruity and savory. Lovely honey, pepper, apricot, pear, apple slices with pepper and a big hit of sandalwood and burning cedar.

Finish: Long finish; funk, funky, sour, acidic and quite complex.

Overall: This is probably my favorite of the three. The nose is wild and interesting, the palate has plenty going on and that funky, ashy, complex finish is a winner.

Thanks for reading!
