Proof66 Notes

Dulce Vida 5yr Extra anejo tequila is aged for 5 years in Kentucky whiskey barrels—an impressively long time for any tequila. It is aged not in American oak ex-bourbon barrels (quite common in the tequila world) but rather wine barrels from the Napa California wine region. This 5yr limited edition is meant to commemorate the brands 5 year anniversary. Note it is bottled at 100 proof... far higher than the more customary 80. This implies to us a very intense and agave forward spirit relative to other tequila.

Dulce Vida tequilas is distinctive in two ways. First, they use only organically grown agave plants for their tequilas. Second, the tequila is bottled at a substantially higher proof (100 pf) than the typical tequila (80 pf). They believe this helps preserve the uncut purity of the agave for good tequila.

Things this tequila is like: Barry White's singing voice. Velvet upholstery. Angora sweaters. Morgan Freeman reading Vachel Lindsay. Alan Parsons' production. Fine Corinthian leather, if it actually existed. The texture of the best pate de foie gras you ever ate. Slipping into a hot tub at the end of a day where you worked very, very hard. Slippers, a smoking jacket, a fire, and a faithful hound dog.
