Fantastic nose. Agave, almonds, minerals, light vanilla, butterscotch. But another patron falling flat on the palate after a great nose. Very short linger.

Aroma: Caramel, butterscotch. Oak, toffee. Fruity bourbon notes that are very reminiscent of Barbados rum to me. Cooked agave. Then whiskey as I drink. Palate: Definitely a lot hotter than I expected for an XA. The caramel is there, cooked agave is light but noticeable. Definitely has some very bourbon like notes to it, front and center. I get the same “feeling” drinking this that I get with sipping bourbon. Good bit of barrel spice, and that whiskey note definitely saturates it. Very oily. Verdict: This is good, but definitely cost prohibitive and too whiskey like for me. If I knew somebody who wanted to give tequila a shot and they’re coming from a whiskey background, I’d have no problem sharing this with them, it fits the bill. As it stands, the agave is too lost in the spicy whiskey and barrel notes. It’s good, don’t get me wrong, but for the price, I don’t think it touches something like the ArteNOM añejo, or even Tonala for drinkability. I much prefer the Roca añejo over this bottling, but not disappointed that I snagged a 375ml. Definitely will be trying this in an old fashioned.

Aroma: Sweet cooked agave, slight amount of caramelized green apple. Taste: Clean but also very light on flavor initially. Finish: Very nice finish of sweet notes of caramelized green apple from the aroma, warm alcohol burn similar to whiskey. Overall: Quite a nice tequila actually, though the flavors are light, the aromas and finish are very nice. An enjoyable sipper and worth it for the right price. Much less flavor than other extra añejos though.

This is a heavy full bodied XA in my opinion, not a favorite. Too much wood and not enough agave flavor

I was really looking forward to trying this XA. But, sadly, Piedra outshines it by a big margin. Too bad. I think Patron is wasting a good opportunity to excel. Bought it on sale for $60, and I think I wasted my money. Very aromatic, but fell flat on its face. I highly recommend you spend your money on another XA.

Oak is steering this ship from beginning to end, I didn’t pick up any roasted agave which makes me think this is spending its life in virgin oak. Great for all the bourbon fans out there.

with the cacophony of barrels and fermnetation methods this tequila presents a confused yet abrasive character. very little of this appeals to my desire to taste the history, terroir or simply the agave, especially at this price point.

Amazing aroma of Carmel, agave and cinnamon. Hints of smoke and fruit. A little pricy but glad I got to taste it.

For the price there isn't much here. Smooth is the only good thing to say. Everything is balanced but bland.

It's literally just fine. A little on the thin side, light on the agave. Grab some El mayor and save your self some money instead.

When someone asks me what my favorite Tequila’s are Patron never really comes to mind, but after having this I am honestly surprised with myself. I am actually enjoying this more than I thought I would. Great barrel flavors coming from start to finish with hints of ripe fruit to add sweetness. My only gripe is that I wish there was a more prominent agave note. It ever so slightly lingers in the background. None the less great XA for $79. Definitely something I will be drinking again over and over.

An XA Patron at a very reasonable price, tasty but not much agave , lots of barrel influence whisky and bourbon, even some tropical banana & melon . Smooth, warm, nice long aftertaste . Opens up a lot , so give it some time .

Really great juice, still agave forward and integrates well with the age. Pretty balanced for an XA. Nice.

Nose of roasted agave, cut lumber, citrus peel, faint vanilla…. Tight flavor profile of oak, lime, and vanilla. Just a hint of pepper on the finish with lingering notes of lime. A fairly gentlemanly pour… At the price point, it’s not something that would be on my bar on a regular basis. No wow factor here.

Tastes a little bit like 4 roses bourbon. Lots of barrel spice. Not a lot of agave but still very enjoyable for me. My dad loves it yet he is a bourbon drinker.

I had high hopes after reading some reviews. Well, I left disappointed. Arome is actually quite good as sets up expectations very high, but it doesn’t deliver on the flavor, which is quite frankly: too plain for XA. There’s plenty of other better options at this price point.

Amazing aroma, but that's where it ends. Oak, and overly sweet.

Sweet start, enjoyble flavor but just the very end has a sharp sharp ending other than that good extra añejo maybe a little rubbery taste.

Tasting cold so flavors are muted. Whiskey comes through.

Caramel nose with oaky cooked agave taste. I think I would prefer to drink this EA as a base for mixed drinks instead of a "sipper".
