Patron Tequila Silver

Patron Silver Tequila - Patrón Silver is a crystal clear, pure ultra-premium tequila. This soft and light tequila is characterized by a fresh, smooth taste, without the flavor of oak.

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 want to start by saying I scored this 100 on enjoyability for a specific reason I'll get to in a second, this by no means makes it my favorite tequila.

Oh Patron one of if not the most polarizing tequilas on the market. I'm not going to bash this like others do. I'm smart enough to recognize what purpose this dryness and it does very well.

Myself and I'm sure others cut there teeth on Patron. I being an avid scotch/bourbon guy stayed clear of the stuff after hearing the stereotypical horror stories of tequila. Until this past 4th of July when my tequila drinking (taking shots of Patron lol) aunt talked me into shooting the stuff all night.

Smell there is hardly any maybe slight agave. Taste slight rubber grassy clean and crisp. Here's where I think Patron ropes the non tequila drinkers in, little burn and smooth going down.

This is why I rated Patron 100 for enjoyability. From this experience not only did my aunt get me to do and continue to do shots with here she got my wife to do it too which never happens we had a great night that night. There have been other parties and bars I've been to where Patron was involved all were great nights. It gets people to drink together and have a good time and I'm all about that.

You can argue to someone until your facE turns red that Patron sucks, but good luck getting them to drink what your are unless they are extremely open minded. Plus it's a good intro tequila to where if you have friends who are willing to branch out can stay here.

Bad, good, great? Good for me. Great for get togethers and go times.

It's popular to knock it, but it tastes nice and is an enjoyable sipper. It may have added agave nectar as some think, but the taste is pleasant and better than many,(comparably priced) tequilas. Yes the price is ridiculous but besides respecting it for starting the recent tequila revolution for many many people, it truly is not bad. The nose is tangy, floral and sweet, with a touch of pepper and spice. It has medium oil, hot, spicy, like many quality blanco's. Although it's hot at times, it is also smooth. The flavors finish nicely with spice and some heat.- Long Island Lou

This was my first tequila years ago. New to the tequila world I thought it was expensive compared to what I had been drinking. I made terrible drinks with it due to my inexperience but often enjoyed it neat. This tequila is popular and got my drinking tequila but did not kick my obsession into what it is now.

My first tequila

This was my first tequila years ago. New to the tequila world I thought it was expensive compared to what I had been drinking. I made terrible drinks with it due to my inexperience but often enjoyed it neat. This tequila is popular and got my drinking tequila but did not kick my obsession into what it is now.

A good starter tequila, especially for the I-don't-drink-tequila crowd. Converts many of the wary.

Great marketing and presentation, but underwhelming nose, body, finish, and price. You are paying for a label and a massive ad budget, rather than true quality.

I don't hate Patron. Actually, I love it, because it introduced me to a spirit that I love. But, I have moved on, as my palette has become more sophisticated. There are far better values and experiences to be had.

Aroma: Citrus, alcohol, tiny bit of agave.

Taste/Body: Watery body with not much going on besides alcohol and a little citrus. Not much agave going on.

Finish: Quick heat that disappears immediately. Slight tingle on the tongue and lips.

In Iowa Patron Silver retails at $50 making it highly overpriced for what you get. Nice bottle though.
