Alternatively often known as Patron Cask Assortment Sherry Cask Añejo, this particular version of Patron Tequila is exclusive in that it spends its two-plus years of getting older in oloroso sherry bottles. No ending right here; it’s sherry all the best way.

The sherry provides the tequila a brightly vivid orange hue, and its fragrant on the nostril as nicely, mixing the pure spice and natural notes of the tequila with a pointy citrus character. The aroma evolves in glass to turn into evenly nutty, with notes of toasted sesame seeds and a peppery, barely beefy edge. Curious notes of burnt matches give it a barely sulfurous character when you breathe deep.

The palate has a curious edge, very sharp with a distinctly oxidized observe, winey and fairly nutty. It’s extra sherry than tequila, with a doughy consistency and plenty of that heavy, virtually amontillado-like character. Grassy, winey, and fairly nutty on the palate, the spirit typically doesn’t characterize itself as tequila in any respect, coming throughout as a younger brandy maybe. That dusky, oxidized sherry character on the end is not possible to shake, and it lingers on the tongue nearly endlessly. Whereas a bit gritty and pungent, it’s not unenjoyable — in actual fact I went again to the bottle a number of instances simply to make sure I used to be tasting what I assumed I used to be tasting — however finally I by no means got here to phrases with how extraordinarily far this diverged from any basic expression of tequila, anejo or in any other case. I really like experimentation within the tequila biz, however this bottling simply goes too far.

80 proof.
