Decent nose but not too complex on the palate. Agave, minerals, citrus, cinnamon... overall decent, but better stuff out there for the same price point.

Story: Tahona crushed and higher proofed añejo expression from Patron Patron. Aroma: The sweet agave from the reposado is still there, but the honey is much more pronounced. A good bit more vanilla, and overall just softer. Palate: Again, cooked and melon strongly on the palate, very little heat, definitely can taste a floral sweetness that isn’t quite honey, but reminiscent. A bit of oak, though not too pronounced, and definitely some barrel spice. Verdict: Damn fine tequila in my opinion. I’ll be searching out a full sized version of this, it really suits my palate. Worth at least a taste at your local tequila bar, or a half size if one is available. Miles beyond standard Patron.

Fair to midland. I little too sharp for my palate. Typical Patron nose and pricing.

Well aged. Warm finish without an overpowering oak finish. Well done Patron, now can we come down a bit in price?

This thing is a beast!! Lots of agave and a hot powerful finish that makes me crave more. I love the concept of an unapologetic tequila, this is how the master distiller thinks Añejo should taste and fuck off if you don’t like it.

The more I drink this, the more I like it. This is a super solid añejo that is a pleasure to drink.

Aroma is initially heavy on alcohol but settles after sitting awhile and the floral notes are again present. Some fruit and oak also come through in the aroma. The flavor is strong cinnamon tempered by sweet fruit. The higher proof is somewhat noticeable in the añejo where it was missing in the blanco and repo. The finish is short to medium and just sort of fades away without anything lasting.

Nose there is honey, toffee, butter. First sip, seemed a little alcohol forward. Agave forward, slight citrus with a nice añejo forward flavor profile and subtle sweetness on the end. Excellent sipping tequila.

I'm starting to appreciate añejos. Especially on cold winter nights. The aroma starts off with some charred oak, cooked agave and honey. The taste has cooked agave, whiskey, citrus and pepper. The finish stays true with a little bite to let you know its tequila. Butter, oak and white pepper.
