In the glass it’s crystal clear with slow legs. On the nose there’s agave, licorice, and cinnamon prevalent. The palate is agave, cinnamon, licorice, and a hint of tropical fruit (mango?) and citrus. It’s got a long warm finish of pepper and cinnamon spice. Note: This bottle has been open for a couple of days and there is considerably less cinnamon present than when first opened. I’ve had the high proof blanco and the reposado (both excellent) and don’t recall the cinnamon notes this one has. Overall tasty but more cinnamon than I prefer, which leads me to believe this bottling, shipping, and/or storage was somewhat unique as others don’t seem to pick this up as predominantly.

Lote 02 Bottle #170 Nose: A touch of mint, cut grass and hay. In your face rich, ripe agave. A floral note and a hint of ripe cheese. Spicy aromas with citrus, mature fruit and earthiness. Flavor: Creamy and oily. Flavors mirror the aromas with balance and finesse. I’m getting a couple of bonus flavors: anise and warming pepper. The agave presence is striking. Nice upper palate buzz sensation. Finish hangs in with creaminess and peppery counterpoint.

Gran Dovejo 40% abv Blanco is one of the best you will ever be able to find. It's hard to beat the phenomenal buttery sweet cooked agave and natural taste. I put this in the top echelon of blancos . I love this juice.

Fresh, vegetal aroma with agave and pepper upfront. Crisp and clean with a hint of anise underneath the strong vegetal opening. Very smooth on the palate with an initial sweetness that is quickly followed by strong spice - black pepper, cinnamon, mint. The finish is medium to long.

Rated blind in Riedel Overture Glass: Crystal clear. Coats the glass with large slow tears forming immediately and tracking into well-defined legs. A number of pearls hang lower down on the glass. Aroma: Lots of green agave with black pepper and vegetal notes accented with apple, mint, lemongrass, and grapefruit that curiously phases into lime over time. There is a slight alcohol note with a nearly imperceptible astringency; this isn’t really off-putting, but probably serves to magnify the green agave notes. Entry: Smooth and cool, slightly buttery. Flavor: Green agave with white pepper, accented with lemon, apple and toasted coconut. Mineral and metallic qualities can also be found around the edges. Finish: The short-to-moderate finish is smooth leading into some wet sweetness and a moderate pepper sensation throughout the palate that becomes more dry as it dissipates. This is a profile many could enjoy.

This tequila has a perfect balance of agave and sweetness. Both seem to compliment each other. It feels great in your mouth and is silky smooth. This is a really solid blanco. We use it regularly as an example of a blanco that's enjoyable -- even for people who normally shy away from them.

Gran Dovejo blanco is crisp and dry with notes of raw agave, white pepper, a bit of anise, some dry earth, and a touch of bitterness. It has a long finish, though not overly complex. This blanco falls in between the soft "American" style and the machismo traditional style. Tasty and recommended!

On old favorite. Lots of straight ahead agave, cooked and raw. Heavy pepper notes and slight sweet & sour finish with medium heat.

Having previously tried the high proof blanco produced by Gran Dovejo I was quite eager to try their standard fare - and I was not disappointed! Light lactic flavor on the nose with some agave as you get closer. Light alcohol and agave in the mouth with a smooth buttery flavor and a very light hint of vanilla. Really an interesting Blanco that I would absolutely recommend! Of note, they play classical music during the fermentation process - I can’t comment on the efficacy of this but the results are outstanding!

Vegetable, grass,earthy. My absolute favorite. I buy Gran Dovejo buy the case. Unfortunately they lost their distributor for New York and I can no longer get it here. Attention all distributors! Please pick this product back up for sale in New York.

Overall not bad - the aroma is unique and not sure if that is vanilla notes or something else. I’ve others that blow this out of the water so once I finish the 1/5th I may likely not purchase again. I’ll continue to taste as I may be a little harsh in my initial response. This has cooled off from the initial. Not a bad blanco overall. I have had others I enjoy more.

Gran Dovejo tequila is... "Off The Hook"

I could just simply say 'run don't walk', and go buy Gran Dovejo Tequila, but let me take some time to explain why.

Gran Dovejo Tequila Blanco – “Bright Star”

A truly good blanco is hard to find. You can’t use the aging process to cover up any unpleasantness, and the agave has to shine. Shine it does is this bright, rich, agave experience! That’s why Gran Dovejo Blanco has a permanent spot in our home bar.

Review #184 - Gran Dovejo Tequila Blanco

Sometimes, a tequila is so good that you can't wait to get your hands on the rest of the line. I was fortunate enough to have the Gran Dovejo Reposado a short while back that I was very anxious to try to base blanco juice from the line.

Finding Some Comforting Clues in Gran Dovejo Tequila

Gran Dovejo is made in the highlands of Jalisco using many of our favorite techniques: the use of very ripe single-estate agave, cooked in clay ovens, distilled in copper pots, and created in small batches. (In other words even more “clues.”)
