Decent spirit. Would of loved for the aromas and smokiness to last longer. Hard to top other smoky expressions from well known distilleries
Somewhat fake taste... not impressed.
I have downgraded from my video review. There's not that much authentic smoke, and there's nothing else but a lit of sweetness. Although it's not ridiculously priced.. I'm not impressed.
Probably a smart marketing idea to make this mezcal-esque expression, but it missed the mark. Nose is one-dimensional, with smoke prominent. Flavor is Minerality, soil, smoke, light citrus. But tastes like three different tequilas mixed together. Very disjointed. Could see it in a spicy/smoky margarita but at this price point ($70) it’s a pass for me.
This is disappointing coming from Patrón. Aroma is basically just alcohol. Neutral and without character. Flavor is similarly flat and neutral. There’s a sweetness that comes at the end that feels out of balance with the rest of it. The finish is a bit rough. For the price, I expected so much more. A lot of emphasis was placed on the fancy bottle, not so much on the liquid inside.
Tequila is at a crossroads with one axis consisting of powerful commercial or celebrity forces and smaller-scale producers on the other.
Patrón Tequila has announced the launch of its latest ultra-premium range with the limited release of Patrón Ahumado Silver and Reposado.
Stars are following in the footsteps of George Clooney's hit with Casamigos, and the spirit may not be better for it.
Here's the reason for the añejo and extra añejo shortage that you probably didn't know was coming.
Tequila's success has created an enormous strain, imperiling the health and viability of the blue Weber agave on which tequila depends, as well as the farmers who grow it.
Despite the obstacles 2020 brought, sales of tequila have soared. To look at exactly how the industry changed in 2020, I asked a panel of tequila experts to weigh in.
One hundred percent. The term seems straight forward enough. You see it listed on labels constantly. But in the case of 100 percent blue agave tequila, you shouldn’t be so sure.
Why it exists, how it works, and what you should expect.
