I think this would be better at 45% ABV. Quite fruity, this has an cherry cough syrup element to it that isn't sweet or cloying. Finish is very dry, as in vermouth dry and happens on the tongue tip and center. Very easy to swallow with not a bit of roughness or burn.

I like sherried scotch and I honestly think Patron makes a decent product. This just was a weird point between a sherry bomb and an añejo, it does not taste like tequila.

The sherry cask brings a nice layer of wine, with some nuts, ripe peach and fruit. This is a different aroma and flavor profile for Patrón, and is quite enjoyable. As you can probably tell from reading the other reviews, sherry cask aromas and flavors aren't for everyone. Usually brands will "finish" their aging in sherry casks to impart a light hint, but in this case Patrón aged it fully which brings pronounced sherry aromas and flavors.

Most definitely, you get the Sherry barrel immediately. It’s impossible to get much more than just the nose of Sherry. Still I do appreciate that since I knew what I was buying before I bought it. Well there is no sweetness, there is a perceived richness. On the finish it seems as if the Tequila is trying to yell it’s name, but the sherry taste still prevails. It is definitely a unique style, but I think this would be fantastic with either a cigar, chocolate or chocolate dessert or a cocktail.
