Review: I picked up a bottle of this coming back through the dutyfree at Madrid airport last month. Very smooth with vanilla/fruit tones and very drinkable. I found it fairly sweet and not having much of a sweet tooth it didn\'t really hit the spot like my favourite Ron Zacapa Centenario 23. My sister and brother-in-law however did prefer it to the Ron Zac. I suspect this would also be very good base flavour when used in a cocktail but it very drinkable by itself.

Review: This Rum was one of the best I have ever tasted., The flavours are very distinct, the first thing I noticed was vanilla and caramel. Everything else was a fantastic mixture of flavours. 10 out of 10.

Review: Very distinct taste, sweet and smooth I was enjoying it with a slice of lime or straight. I didn't have a favourite rum until now.

Review: What a superb rum! up until now, Pussers was the favoured rum in our house (hubby being ex forces and has severd in the Carribean!) but ordered this as a 1 off pressent for him. Trouble is, this has not been allowed to be a 1 off! Lovely smooth taste, with a distinct mellow flavour. Marks out of 10? Definite 10, with Pussers now being a 9 3/4.

Review: When I first tasted this rum I was a little surprised at how smooth this drink was - it reminded me of a very smooth, expensive whisky and nothing at all like the 'navy' style rums we are all used to at the pub. I could really taste the wood of the barrels it had been aged in and friends agreed. Like most rums it is fairly sweet and I would say it would be best enjoyed neat or over ice to fully appreciate the subtle flavours - mixing it with something like coke is probably best left to the cheaper rums as in my opinion this hides all the character found in this very drinkable (if somewhat expensive) spirit.

Producer Information

Patron is produced and blended by a small family owned and operated distillery high in the mountains of Jalisco. Recently an additional new distillery has been built which will incorporate the traditional tequila manufacturing methods of the past while integrating modern techniques of quality control. This particular growing region of Mexico is considered the most ideal for production of the Weaber Tequilana Blue Agave.
The climate is warm and the soil is clayey with high ferrous oxide content.
Patron tequilas are made from premium selected Weaber Tequilana Blue Agave plants. The trimmed heart of the agave plant resembles a large "pineapple". The trimmed agave "pineapples" weigh between 50 to 80 lbs. It takes 8 to 9 years for a premium Blue Agave to mature properly. Blue Agave grown in this region produce higher "honey" or sugar content, which when distilled produces a very individual character and flavour. There are certain "bitter" sprouts which must be carefully removed from the "pineapple" before steam baking. Few distilleries take the care and time to remove these sprouts. Patron does.
The next extremely important step in production is the slow vapour steam baking in masonry ovens. This steam baking takes approximately 36 hours. Most tequila factories fast cook the pineapples caramelizing the outside and leaving much of the inside under cooked, bitter and starchy. The cooked agave is then carefully torn and placed in a shallow stone milling pit and slowly macerated by large stone milling wheels. Crushing in this fashion leaves the sweet juice freely absorbed in the mescal fibers. The juice filled fiber is then placed in wooden fermentation vats. Once in the fermentation vats the juice is naturally adjusted and yeast added to encourage fermentation. This fermentation lasts for 60 to 72 hours.
The "must" is then submitted to a double distillation in copper pot sills. The first distillation produces a low alcohol content, the second produces a much higher alcohol content. The tequila is then balanced to 80 proof 40% Alc. by volume and fine filtered.
