Patron Tequila Anejo

Patron Tequila Anejo - Patrón Añejo is a delicate blend of uniquely aged tequilas, all aged in small white oak barrels for a minimum of 12 months.

Patron History: The original Patron Tequila was produced by Tequila Siete Leguas, and brand rights were sold to St. Maarten Spirits, owners John Paul DeJoria (Paul Mitchell Hair Products) and Martin Crowley in 1989. As the brand grew, Tequila Siete Leguas was no longer able to keep up with production, and Patron built a new distillery and moved all production in 2002.

The first time I got to try this, I was at a tasting where a dozen tequilas were available. I thought this stuff tasted like paint thinner compared to most of the others. This is before the massive marketing rush that has made this popular among people who let signs on trucks tell them what to think.

Good rule of thumb: Anyone who calls their blanco tequila "silver" is trying to pull a fast one. This is no exception.

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

Patron across the board has very little "true" tequila flavors. It's almost as if it has been taken out to appeal to as broad an audience as possible. That's why I tell people that it can introduce people to tequila when all they previously know is the rancid flavor of the crap they drank in college. However, it will not have a the aging or character that smaller brands will have.

Patron Anejo fits all of those descriptions: Slight agave and carmel flavor, thin body and not a ton of overall flavor. The nice thing is that it mixes well and can be found just about anywhere in the US if you want to buy a 100% agave tequila. The bottle is also very nice.

It's a mediocre, mildly overpriced tequila.

This tequila is ok. Someone brought it back from the USA for me because they heard it was "one of the good ones" (hello, Patron marketing machine).
Luckily, they only paid $43 for it at duty free. This bottle, however sells here in Ontario at the LCBO for $100. At that price, I would expect a MUCH better tequila.
Basically, this tequila just doesn't have a ton of flavour...it's pretty bland stuff. Not offensive, just not that good.
The bottle is the best thing about it.

Very disapointing for an Anejo, by any standards.
