I liked the Patron Anejo a little better than the Silver. It has a mild flavor of agave and oak, however not as prominent as other anejos. I found it a bit smoother than the Silver... that's not saying much though. Patron Anejo is not a bad tequila but for the price there is much better out there.
Tasted in rocks glass on April 18, 2008 showing long lasting legs down the glass.
Color: light golden
Aroma: slight wood
Taste: ground black pepper, agave and a tinge of wood with medium to heavy on the tongue finishing with a numbing burn
For anejos I would much rather drink either the Sol Azul, Casa Noble or Don Julio 1942. My current top three anejo picks as of the writing of this review. If in a pinch as I was with the bar only have Patron as the "top shelf" Tequila brand then Patron is what you are stuck ordering.

This tequila is a pale yellow color and has an extremely intense aroma of earth and moderate-to-intense floral. There are also moderate aromas of fruit, spice, and smoke followed by a hint of caramel. A mellow taste on the tip of the tongue leads to a low-to-sweet level of sweetness with mild bitterness. The Patron Anejo flavor contains intense fruit flavors and moderate agave, chemical, and floral. The tequila also has mild intensities of earth and smoke followed by a hint of vanilla and spice. Patron Anejo finishes with a medium-to-long duration of flavor and a numbing alcohol feeling. This tequila has been awarded the overall rating of 86/87 points out of 100.
