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.

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.

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.

There are much better out there; however, most restaurants stock in the bar. So, if you enjoy this or the Patron brand, you will find your “tequila”.

Light alcohol aroma but otherwise not distinguishable. Light burn in the mouth with a hint of Rye whiskey flavor. Little to no complexity and not a memorable flavor. Finish and aftertaste has some spice. Nothing about this tequila is overly unpleasant but not worth buying again.

Solid, smooth tequila that has great flavor, but it’s a bit overpriced due to great marketing and availability.

Sweet aroma. Bourbon like flavor...strong oak. Tasted cold, so it could have dampened the flavor. Slight burn

Vanilla aroma but woody in the mouth. Like a rhum. The agave is hidden behind the vanilla and woody flavours.

Nose: Carmel, cooked agave, oak, and baking spices. Taste: Sweet with balanced flavors and slight peppery bite. Well crafted, but a tad over priced.

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.
