Gran Patrón Smoky

Patrón Tequila is pushing the boundaries again with the release of a smoky expression made from agave roasted with mesquite for a week in small stone pits. To create the Tequila’s smoky aroma and taste, the heart of the Weber Blue agave plant is roasted in underground stone pits at the Patrón Hacienda in the Jalisco Highlands. The cooked agave is then crushed with a volcanic stone tahona wheel before being placed in pinewood fermenters and distilled in copper pot stills. It boasts aromas of “artichoke, pepper, spices, and hints of sweet citrus”, and has notes of “smoked agave and citrus” on the palate with a “long peppery finish”.

RRP: US$199.

  1. Peter says:

    Chill filtered, added caramel,, 40% ABV – obviously aimed at the mainstream supermarkets so that it has visual appeal on the shelf. It is generally disappointing when the owners of distilleries which normally produce in bulk for blends decide to go for one of these “designer” releases, particularly when there has been some very good independent bottling’s from this particular distillery in the past.
