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. Sweet agave and a little pepper kick. Oily on the tongue with vanilla/ almond notes. 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.

I like Patron, but in general it feels overpriced. It's very good, and I constantly compare it with the value tequilas that I try. It generally justifies its more lofty status. The finish is the strongest point. Aroma isn't spectacular, and the flavor is good but a bit subdued. But the finish is somehow really light and effervescent. It also has a delicate mouth feel. I have tried a few tequilas that are just better in every sense though. And they're not more expensive. Perhaps they're harder to find, however. That's where Patron really stands out. The quality to availability ratio is high. You can always find Patron in any market, bar or restaurant in the US. With that in mind, it's always a solid choice.

Aroma Cloves, spicy, woodsy; flavor is smooth and very spicy; smooth and warm spice down the hatch. Word of caution: this is a overly hyped tequila. It’s not bad but it’s better to support the little guys

I’m not a fan of añejos but I do enjoy the reposado. This is sweet and peppery with agave throughout, light aging and maybe some smoke? Good medium-long finish. But whiskey flavor is prominent throughout. Patron is great Tequila, Don’t be a hater.

The blanco, reposado, and anejo offerings from Patron were similar to one another in that the nose wasn’t unpleasant, the taste not memorable, and a slight oily taste. These would not appeal to me at their respective price points as better alternatives for my palate and preferences exist.

Astringent to the nose / Olor a alcohol de friega. Where’s the flavors?! A bit of wood after swallow but that’s it. / Insaboro, notas de madera al final, sin resolle más allá del alcohol. No wish/willing to sip for the next one and, that’s a very sad thing for a Tequila. / Sin gusto por llegar al segundo trago es algo muy triste para un Tequila. At this flavor/value is not worth it even as a Reposado. / Lo insípido le hace no ser valorado ni como Reposado.

Not a very strong Anejo contender by any means. Fair aroma with not as much wood as would be expected. Good even flavor and definitely not low end tasting. Finish was best part with light, even burn and where most of the flavor expands. Great gateway tequila and respectable enough to serve to guests or bring to a party.

Oak, caramel, honey, and alcohol aroma are prominent. Finish is harsh; static-y even. Bottle no. 4663177

Slight smoke, heavy minerality, slight harsh finish. I expected more.

Hate to be so harsh, but the drink is just bad. I can’t enjoy the acid burn after every drink. The screwed face I get after every sip is my best way to show my feelings for this Añejo. Smells and Tastes like an attempt at an agave forward añejo, with some very strange tastes mixed in. I would pass on this.

Thin on the nose and initial taste. Good finish, just wish there was more upfront.

Good example of what we expected from an inexpensive añejo. Rich in honey aromas could or it couldn't be a good factor for it's smoothness but is smoother than most. underestimated for sure, must try .

A good starter anejo, lots of bourbon barrel showing through. If you like whiskey, you probably will enjoy some of the flavors here.

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.
