Decent spirit. Would of loved for the aromas and smokiness to last longer. Hard to top other smoky expressions from well known distilleries

Somewhat fake taste... not impressed.

I have downgraded from my video review. There's not that much authentic smoke, and there's nothing else but a lit of sweetness. Although it's not ridiculously priced.. I'm not impressed.

Probably a smart marketing idea to make this mezcal-esque expression, but it missed the mark. Nose is one-dimensional, with smoke prominent. Flavor is Minerality, soil, smoke, light citrus. But tastes like three different tequilas mixed together. Very disjointed. Could see it in a spicy/smoky margarita but at this price point ($70) it’s a pass for me.

This is disappointing coming from Patrón. Aroma is basically just alcohol. Neutral and without character. Flavor is similarly flat and neutral. There’s a sweetness that comes at the end that feels out of balance with the rest of it. The finish is a bit rough. For the price, I expected so much more. A lot of emphasis was placed on the fancy bottle, not so much on the liquid inside.
