After entering the Hacienda Patrón estate, you drive past an agave field as you approach the distillery and this very limited-edition tequila is made only using agave from this field, some 4,000 agave harvested over two days in April 2018.
The field was replanted after harvesting but it will be 6-7 years before the agave reach maturity and the next Estate Release can be produced.
The harvested agave are roasted in brick ovens and crushed using a tahona wheel, fermented, and distilled.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 24/07/2019
Herbaceous with black pepper spice and faint rosemary and mint.
Generous roast agave flavour with some black pepper spice and faint liquorice.
Long finish with mild black pepper and faint floral notes.
Like Patrón silver but much bigger and richer with a more luscious mouthfeel.
