Viva XXXII Tequila Joven
Viva XXXII // Mexico
This clear tequila is made from a blend of blanco and 3-year-old extra anejo tequilas, each made with 100% organic blue agave. Viva XXXII Joven is then carbon-filtered to remove its color. The bottle is adorned with a chihuahua named Phil, the brand's mascot--Viva XXXII donates 10% of its net proceeds to animal abuse prevention.
Tequila JovenTypically only mixtos are used for this category where caramel-coloring can be added, but can also be bottlings where 100% blanco tequila is blended with a 100% reposado or añejo tequila.
"A nose of fresh, salty agave character contrasts nicely to more decadent wood-derived aromas of dried honey and creme brûlée. The palate has admirable richness and the oak continues to be assertive filling the palate with slightly sweet flavors before it finishes with a burst of spicy agave pepper. All together a very nice sipping tequila that has good complexity and will appeal more to drinkers who like their spirits to show a good amount of oak influence. "
