PATRON EXTRA ANEJO TEQUILA 7YR
The Extra Anejo 7 Anos is a blend of tequilas produced by two methods. The first is the traditional tahona, where the agave is crushed by a stone wheel and the juices are released and then re-absorbed by the fiber - the fiber is also included in the fermentation. Patron claims to be one of the few distilleries still using this process. The second method is the roller, where the juices are squeezed out and separated from the fiber immediately. Each style is fermented separately in pine wood, and then double distilled in custom copper pot stills designed by Alcaraz. They were then blended together and aged in French oak.
Patron's latest release is this special edition - under 700 cases are available of the oldest tequila it's ever produced - a seven year old extra anejo that may be the best thing Patron's ever put into a bottle. Patron Extra Anejo 7 Anos has spent seven years in toasted French oak barrels, a twist from the usual aging in ex-Bourbon barrels. Patron 7 Anos pours a lovely, light-coffee brown and offers a surprisingly complex nose of dried fruits, raisins, nuts, cinnamon and baking spice, with just a touch of agave. The body is quite incredible. It lacks that dense sugar character that so many anejos have, but rather offers a softer character, one that's loaded with more fruit, spiced nuts, tons of allspice, and a little dark chocolate. The overall impression is slightly bittersweet and quite spicy, with another surprise on the finish - it's quite dry on the palate, which really lets the agave come forward at last. The entire expression is well-developed, balancing, and unique, its charms really encompassing the palate in a manner you don't typically expect with very old tequila.
Patron is unlikely to revisit this expression down the road - the stocks of this unique spirit have been depleted for this bottling run - so if all this sounds appealing - which it should - then you better snap it up quick.
