Tequila Gran Dovejo Añejo

Tequila Gran Dovejo Añejo is 100% Blue Agave, and is aged in American white oak barrels for 1 to 3 years, until the aroma and body is approved by Master Distiller Leopoldo Solis Tinoco.

Tequila Gran Dovejo is a small-batch, traditionally crafted, premium tequila. Made from 100% of the finest, single-estate blue agave, our plants are exclusively grown in the beautiful highlands of Jalisco, Mexico by the Vivanco family who has been producing some of the finest agave in the region for over five generations. The agave plants are harvested at the peak of maturity, stripped of their "pencas", and the "piñas" are then slowly roasted in traditional clay ovens for up to 36 hours. Once roasted, the "piñas" are shredded in a mill after which the sweet agave juices are extracted. Once the juices are isolated, they are fermented with the use of champagne yeast while the harmonious sounds of music play in the background as this is found to optimize the sugar conversion. Our tequila is then double distilled in Alembic copper pot stills. Expressing his craftsmanship and worthy of carrying his name, Mr. Leopoldo Solis Tinoco introduces his exquisite creation: Tequila Gran Dovejo. Masterfully done.

I really enjoyed this entire line, but the anejo was my favorite. Like the repo, this anejo has a fruity nose with cinnamon as well, but there is a slightly stronger wood presence in this age, as one would expect. There is a lot going on here.

There is even more complexity added in the taste - a very nice surprise. All the fruitiness and cinnamon spice as in the nose, and that woody oak comes out even more. It really explodes on the tongue. There is a bit of agave lost in the aging process, but that is to be expected with most anejos as the wood does its thing.

A very smooth finish as with the other ages, and well balanced. They are all clearly quality products made with care.

The nice bottle and beautiful color make a lovely presentation.
