Review #2005 | Tequila Review #35

Distiller: Don Guelo

Bottler: La Venenosa

Brand: La Venenosa


ABV: 40.5% ABV

Age: NA

Nose: Wowzers, martini in a flask! Sour olives, briny and lactic, funky cheese notes and a big hit of acidity. Very different from G1 on the nose, an excellent compliment.

Taste: Funky on the palate, very lactic and lacking that olive note from the nose. Briny, exceptionally savory. Sour apple.

Finish: Long finish. Funkiest so far. That olive note is back, blending with pepper, blue cheese and sour fruits.

Overall: This is certainly pushing the funk factor compared to G1 but I like it a hair less. Still very good, but the palate goes a hair sour for me to consistently be drawn to it.

Thanks for reading!
