Gran Patron Burdeos Anejo Tequila

Gran Patron Burdeos Anejo Tequila is distilled at 55 percent alcohol volume from the finest blue Agave grown in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico. The Tequila is matured in a blend of American and French oak barrels and aged for a minimum of 12 months. It is then distilled again before it is racked in vintage Bordeaux barrels, hand-selected from the great chateaux of France to add the distinctive flavors of vanilla, raisins and dried fruit found in the finest Bordeaux wine.

Each bottle is placed in a box handcrafted from a single piece of black walnut, designed to double as a display case for the bar. Set in a bed of suede, the unleaded crystal bottle is cork finished like wine and sealed with a crystal cap. The packaging includes a specially designed corkscrew to assist with opening and an unleaded crystal bee stopper to preserve every drop.

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.

I received as a gift last evening. We didn't see the "special" corkscrew and used thumb pressure to remove the original think cork. Gran Patron is very rich, smooth and tastes as expensive as it is. I'm not sure I would purchase, but it is a very special sipping tequila for very special occasions. After reading the enclosed "instructions," we were surprised that the "special" "crystal bee stopper" is very loose in our bottle. We did not remove the polypropylene (?) protector on the enclosed stopper. Have others observed a very loose fit form the stopper? Is our stopper defective? Seems like a serious lack of quality control or a design defect for such expensive packaging.

Tried this tequila in a flight of high end anejos. From the first sip I was impressed and was a little surprised when I reconfirmed that it was the Patron. Patron is always my stand by tequila as it's everywhere (too common for some people) but you always know what you are getting. Really enjoyed the full bodied smooth taste of the Burdeos and had to purchase a bottle. Price point is high but I save to for special occasions. I have tasted better tequilas but needed to add this to my tequila shelf and the bottle is a spectacular.

I had alot of high hope for this Patron, and it was a ver satisfying tequila overall, still would never pay asking price for the bottle, having a friend thats a bartender helps.

We tasted this beauty on 9-23 at a restaurant in a wine glass that closely resembled ISO tasting glasses. The color is a very deep amber, with a relatively high viscosity. The nose contained oak, citrus, caramel, and a bit of cooked agave. Evidence of the wine barrel can be noticed in the middle taste - dark berry, vanilla, a little cocoa, and cherry - but all are secondary to the still-present agave. The finish is strong with agave, vanilla, and caramel, and is quite long. The pleasant surprise is that so much of the agave flavor has been retained despite the amount of aging that this spirit has undergone.

While I would have no problem finding desserts with which to pair this tequila, I think I would much prefer to have it *as* dessert.

Here's why I rated the price so well: Our city's leading tequila bar wants $100 per shot for Burdeos, and the $500 that the liquor stores want for the whole bottle makes both way out of our price range. However, the little restaurant up the street knows that, in reality, nobody in this town will buy a $100 shot, and has therefore priced it at $45 for a shot.

A fine spirit from Patron, very smooth and full of nice aromas and flavors. I was lucky enough to sample this at my brothers restaurant and bar, as I can't afford the bottle.
