Fascinating notes of spicy peppers, dill pickle, lime, salt, celery: sort of like a margarita and a Bloody Mary all by itself. — 2 months ago
Tastes like Tequila with a Scotch nose, Interesting concept worth trying once Distillery notes as follows, Single barrels of Añejo from El Tesoro are finally here—and they come with the best collaboration we've seen out of Jalisco. This barrel was aged for 9 months in ex-bourbon casks before a 4-month finishing in Laphroaig barrels, the world's most richly flavored Scotch. The gentle addition of smoke from the peaty barrel without breaking from Tequila traditions is a beautiful combination. Like everything Tequila legend Carlos Camarena puts out—it's well balanced and subtle retaining it's focus on the agave. Bright tropical fruits mingle with a whiff of smoke. The earthiness of the peat brings out the spicier flavors of the agave showcasing a roasted pepper note beautifully. Like an expert chef, the dash of salt from the Laphroaig influence helps everything else to really pop. — 8 days ago

Fantastic bottle, smooth without being filled with fake sweeteners Store & Distillery notes as follows A True Joven with 3-4 yr aged anejo. Aromas of sweet tropical fruit, sweet veggies, pepper, pineapple and coconut. The palate brings a salt hit with Caspian, corn husk. No diffusion, clean texture. D&M Tasting Notes
A craft sipping tequila hand blended by certified Master Tequilero Guillermo Barroso Arnaud. The Master Tequilero certification is similar to a master Sommelier, but with the additional depth of expertise in distillation and chemistry to develop a specific style. There are currently only nine Master Tequilero's in the world.
Every step in the production process is very deliberate and selected for a specific reason in the art of the blend and balance of this true Joven. The bright agave flavor should be just as recognizable as the extra anejo tequila.
Single Estate Highland Agave, twice copper pot distilled, and blended with a 3-4yr extra anejo from ex bourbon barrels.
A light Crystalline filtration system is used to keep as much of the terroir and organoleptic properties as possible.
No diffusers, no added sugar, single estate agave only, and a very meticulous distillation process.
Tasting Notes: vanilla, sherry, oak at the front of palate, green tea and d’anjou pear on the finish, nice acidity. Blanco notes of agave still palatable in tandem with the barrel notes of the extra anejo. Distillery Notes — 3 months ago
