Dulce Vida blanco, reposado, anejo (episode 19) tequila review

Have you ever attempted to walk through FIRE to get to the sweet-tasting good life on the other side?  That is EXACTLY what Lippy succeeded in doing on this episode of The “Tequila Whisperer” Show.

Th’ Lip tasted all three age varieties of the new “Dulce Vida” 100 proof tequilas.  As you know, the vast majority of U.S. tequilas have a 40% alcohol content (80 proof).  The extra 10% alcohol increase really DOES change the mouth feel and affects the taste, though to a lesser degree.  Surprise (not): these tequilas were WAY more spicy than their 80 proof counterparts, and that is EXACTLY what made them so engaging over the long run.  Watch as Lippy thrills to the long finish on these fiery fiestas!

TEQUILA STATS:

BRAND: Dulce Vida

NOM: 1360

AGAVE SOURCE: Tepic coastal highlands region of Nayarit

GENERAL TASTING NOTES:

Sweet spice attack on all ages of Dulce Vida. Blanco and anejo are taste standouts for their distinct profiles in courage!  Repo, while not BAD, is simply a bit lackluster compared to the bold flavor statements made by it’s younger and older siblings.  Add to this the fiery HEAT of the 100 proof and you have a superior “flask” brand for your travel needs!

FLAVOR Profiles (out of a possible 4 points)


Musical Guest:

All fan request night!  Great selections from the VAST Man-Cave archives!

    I HEAR you, Eric. I liked the anejo better than the repo, but like I say in the show– the blanco has a lot to recommend as well. SalUd to you, and i hope to see you at a LIVE show in the future!

    I tried to watch live with my lady and roomate and it cut out so much I had to quit watching. I hope it’s fixed this week.
