Agave funk very present on this one. Cooked agave, wet minerality, buttery, touch of vanilla. Surprisingly soft on the palate for 98proof, sweet tropical fruit presence matched with biscoff cookie like savoriness. With a finish that just keeps on giving long after your sip.

On the nose, loads of agave, wet stone, lime and general citrus notes. A nice earthiness to it, but not overly “dull”, if that makes sense. Definitely minerals and a ‘green’ vegetal like note. Good nose. As it opens up more, there’s a fragrant, aromatic fruity sweetness. The palate is immediately hit with a spiciness, and loads of agave. Lots of minerality, and a very juicy citrus hit. Some very clear cinnamon, pineapple rind, and as it opens up, there’s a nice fruitiness to it. Damn good stuff from Gran Dovejo. Theres a lot of complexity here, it opens up so much. I may do a 2nd review on it later on because this keeps evolving for a while. I adore high proof tequilas, and this immediately shot up to the top 3 for me. Killer value at $48, definitely up there with Tapatio 110 and Fortaleza SS.

Cooked agave, minerality and black pepper on the nose with a light smell of citrus, like a citrus peel… cooked agave on the tongue with some initial heat, because of the high proof. Black pepper also present with a citrus finish

Nose- baked agave, honey, dried herbs, butter, cinnamon. Surprisingly sweet and savory for a Blanco. Taste- caramelized agave, anise, stewed fruit, bell pepper, almond, and very faint alcohol. Unique flavor profile- especially for a high proof and unaged spirit. Creamy full bodied mouth feel. Finish- incredibly soft and clean. Value- um yeah this is an amazing tequila and high proof, and less than $60. One of my new favorites.

Aroma: I get alcohol on the nose with this more than most high proofs. Some fruit, like pear. Cooked agave and baking spices… almost like nutmeg? Flavor: Cooked agave, there’s a tangyness I’m picking up that I can’t put my finger on. I think I like it. More pear. A little minerality comes through on the back end. The alcohol doesn’t show up in the flavor nearly as much as the aroma. It’s a nice pop of alcohol but not overpowering. Finish: There’s a little bite on the back end. Agave comes through on the finish with a little more minerality and baking spice… little bit of that pear comes through on the finish. Overall: I like this tequila and would certainly drink it again. I’d get another bottle because it’s interesting to me. A little subtle on the nose and the flavors good but nothing really bold like I’d expect from a higher proof.

Aroma : Cooked agave with herbal, vegetal notes and some earth and mineral tones. Flavor : Tons of creamy, sweet cooked agave with butter, vanilla, and nutty undertones. There is also some pepper, cinnamon, and baking spices. This is the right amount of spice and sweetness, with a full-flavored oily mouthfeel. Finish : Long lasting with a more mineral quality than the initial taste, slightly bitter.

Aromas of cooked agave, wet earth, and minerals. Sweet, rounded agave and mineral taste with a light, lingering finish. For a high proof (49% abv) it is highly drinkable and feels very authentic.

Lote 1 bottle 608 Nose: Ripe tree fruit. Lime, citrus rind, bold caramelized ripe agave, root vegetables, earthiness and river rocks. Somewhat floral. Some herbal notes present: thyme and rosemary. Flavor: The mouth feel is explosive. It is teeming with pepper and brown spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, enfolded in big buttery agave slathered vanilla/almond creaminess. Almost salty. Finish isn’t as complex as the aromas & flavor. A hint of bitterness lingers.

Grand Dovejo high-proof Blanco is one of the best available. The phenomenal buttery sweet cooked agave and natural taste is outstanding. I put this in the upper echelon of high-proof natural Blancos.

Great nose with agave, citrus, minerals. Flavor is consistent with the nose, with pepper. Loads of complexity. I’ll need to try this again to identify more notes. Nice mouth feel. Finish has some heat, more pepper. Great Blanco! I’ve learned to let these high proof tequilas breathe for 30 minutes. Otherwise the nose and flavor can have too much alcohol.

Has a wonderful sweetest! This is my second high proof blanco that I’ve had. I definitely want to try more of these. On another note I’m not sure if this brand is related to tequila Ocho. But they use the same font on the label that Ocho does. Probably a coincidence but it’s interesting

Smells crisp and clean. Agave, greenness.. peppery and buttery taste. As it opens up a bit, the smells and taste are more pronounced. At $48, this is great stuff!

I am in love. GD's high proof blanco priced at $50-$60 seems like a steal. Nose: An inviting mild sweetness of roasted agave, black pepper, citrus, a bright clay minerality and butter. Palate: A mild sweetness and buttery mouthfeel with a solid peppery heat that lingers but does not over power. Upfront this presents with roasted agave, peppercorns, and butter. As it opens up it adds a light brine/salt, cream soda, cinnamon, and limestone minerality. Finish: Medium to long. As the heat fades it transitions to sweet agave and a soft minerality. ,
