Nose: Agave, touch of honey. Light vanilla notes. Definitely a hint of banana and butterscotch. Palate: Agave and caramel, right off the bat. Vanilla, and a very strong whiskey note. Bourbon, I think. I get the barrel notes for sure, but not a ton else. Verdict: Try it. It’s a competent añejo. If your choice is this or picking up a 1L of Tapatio for another couple bucks, by all means skip it. But at $45-50/bottle, I see no real flaws here. It’s a competent, albeit simple tequila. It tastes quality, no crappy diffuser notes, additive free, and an all around decent sipper. It’s not top shelf, but honestly, I don’t understand the hate it gets. I really think it’s just cool to hate on Patron, And that’s why everybody does. The blanco is a little pricy for what it is, but at least here in California, the añejo is reasonably priced. I assume the blanco and repo are priced up to account for that, but I’m not sure.

Nose is Baking spices, Werther’s original candy, cooked agave. More caramel on the palate, it’s sweet which turns to some burn and a lingering, albeit simple, finish.

Love the barrel selection here, they have made a really great Añejo. Agave still present which isn’t easy, no wonder they sell millions of these bottles!

Nose: Has moderate agave, barrel spices, vanilla and a floral note. Ripe fruit aroma. Flavor: Sweet agave and a little pepper kick. Semi oily on the tongue with vanilla/ almond notes. Ripe fruit, perhaps cherries and guava. Finishes with pepper and vanilla. Patron always takes the knocks because of pricing and predisposed assumptions. Yes, there are better. And I think they try to hit a target audience with a product that is middle of the road. But it is a well crafted tequila - just not stellar.

Flavors and aromas are muted. At this price, I expected a more.

Rated blind. Aroma rich with vanilla and cake batter, and not very complicated. Grass, hay, straw also present. Flavor is warm and sweet, with a dry finish. This is not an overly aged tequila, which I appreciate, but it's also very simple.

Again fairly no Aroma, Caramel flavour, oaky, finish is really nice and fades away quick, I think I spent nearly $100 at my local liquor store and for that price range there are countless better products out there.

Strong vanilla aroma. Sweet tasting. The vanilla and oak tastes fantastic! A little bite of agave let’s you know you’re sipping tequila. Love this!

Below average añejo. Where I bartend at we have a margarita that we use Patron Añejo. It’s actually great as a mixer. Contrary to what we usually do it adds a different element to a margarita.

This for me is the nose and the finish, that’s what stands out, that’s what earned it’s rating, plus the value! How the tequila says hello, and says goodbye (the finish), speaks more to me than what it’s saying while it’s in my presence (the taste), if you will. If you taste terrible I’ll call you out for it, however, if you taste terrible, but know you taste terrible, and vacate the premises in a way that agrees with the landlord (me) my palate will appreciate that, and it won’t go unnoticed. You might be a bad lay, but you knew to leave the moment I wasn’t tasting you. In other news, it’s delightful to me that patron is a tequila you can buy at your local grocery store. Patron is my mistress. Patron belongs to the streets, but goddamn if she don’t hold it down in my heart. Salute milady.

This is sippable, but it’s overpriced and nothing special. It has the typical añejo profile with oak, cinnamon, vanilla, and mild agave. There’s still some citrus here as well. The palate is pretty neutral and the finish is short. I feel that Patrón’s products sacrifice body and complexity for extra “smoothness,” and while I can see the appeal of this it’s not my thing. For me, this is a decent bar pick but I wouldn’t keep a bottle around.

Nose of fresh cut lumber, citrus, pepper and minerals. Not much oak influence on the palate. Mild flavors of honey, vanilla icing and lemon. Medium peppery finish. Not something that I’d keep on the shelf.

Aromas of caramel, honey & possibly a faint bit of citrus. Flavors of agave, honey, cinnamon & almond. Easy finish with a little pepper. Nice overall tequila, but not special and overpriced.

Fantastic aroma, you get the oak barrel from this. The sip is not complimentary as it is very alcohol forward but the finish is nice. This is my favorite of the Patron trio as I like to sip on tequilas.

I had high hopes for this and unfortunately it didn’t deliver up to my expectations. Think there is better value and tasting tequila.

Review #95 - Patron Tequila Anejo

While I feel like Patron is given harsh treatment from tequila lovers because of it's influence on people with the marketing, but I also feel like it has its place.
