Proof66 Notes

Dulce Vida anejo tequila is the aged (anejo) expression from the label. It has aged for at least 1 year in Kentucky whiskey barrels imparting a "spicy, silky smooth, finish." 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.

In 2010, the Beverage Testing Institute called it "Impressively flavorful" and recommended drinking it with a splash of water.

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.

This is a sipping tequila. We tried it in many different settings in a pretty rigorous test and find that it’s very best showing is all by its lonesome in the glass with a dash of ice. More importantly, this is 100% a whiskey drinkers’ tequila… all the oak-vanilla is received in trade of the vegetal agave. This will be greeted quite warmly by some but a disappointment to others. If you love your oak, then buy this. If you are one who tends to prize reposados because they still taste like agave, this is one to avoid.
