Bit of nail polish on those nose. Not much in the way of agave, earth, or citrus. Flavor however is quite pleasing, warm, sweet, floral. Long warm finish that’s well rounded. Price ain’t so hot. Better options for less money IMO.

Nose: Caramelized agave is the dominant note on entry. Shortly after, minerals and sweet thyme kick in. Quite aromatic with floral notes and trace vanilla or caramel. Flavor: Spicy and peppery. Sweet, natural, creamy agave fills your palate. Vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg follow. Finish: Pepper, creaminess and spices linger, with an additional suggestion of anise. Slight bitterness at the tail end.

Completely neutral on the nose, after that an explosion of agave flavour and a long, rich finish. I would drink way more of this if it was cheaper.

I find the aroma to be somewhat lacking but the flavor and finish were nice. I purchased this bottle on sale for $50 but it normally sells for around $65. The price brings its overall rating down.

Rated blind in Riedel Overture Glass: Crystal clear. Lots of big beautiful bubbles hang at the top of the bottle and the top of the pour. A few remain for a surprising length of time. Coats the glass well with large tears forming quickly and flowing into thick widening legs, leaving a large number of pearls hanging in the glass. Aroma: Huge agave notes dominate, pretty exclusively, with no defects or metallics. The brighter more vegetal agave notes present early (faint green apple/apple/pear, light grapefruit, hints of wet grass and celery) giving way a bit after opening up to allow the cooked agave notes to come through (light butter, warm slow cooked starches like brown sugar), with a white pepper note throughout. Entry: This enters smooth and warm with a medium viscosity. Flavor: Flavor very much follows the aroma, with the additional note of a slight minerality. Not very complex, but a very pure and bold representation of the agave. Finish: Descends smoothly with no burn or heat. No alcohol notes or effects ever present themselves. The finish is long and peppery with the pure agave flavors represented. Slightly dry on top of the palate. Wet with notes of butter and mineral water around the edges of the palate. Conclusion: An excellently crafted, pure, bold and uncluttered representation of agave. Thoroughly enjoyable. At $60 however, this does lose some points on value.

Peppery citrus agave clean crisp 90 proof like it! Agree with Alejandro Nunez that it gets better!... Could be because of the higher alc content...

I was a bit disappointed at first... It tasted too diluted... Watery... But as I kept on drinking, it got better and better. SOLID.

Aroma: This has a very interesting aroma. I get notes if raw agave, earth (dirt, clay), and also slightly floral and acidic. I feel like I can tell this is higher proof because there is a strong alcohol note that's fairly hot. Flavor: Very minty. There's also a slight hint of raw agave and a little pepper. Finish: The finish is very smooth and lingers for a bit. The higher alcohol content definitely makes it hang around but not overpowering at all. Conclusion: I think this suffers from the Patron complex. It's a good tequila but just way overpriced for what it is. I love the higher proof but I would much rather have the Tapatio 110 for half the price.

Deep agave aroma along with anise and some floral undertones. Also, something that smells almost like clay. Thick, syrupy texture with spice/black pepper flavor. After all the aroma notes, the flavor is pretty unexceptional. A bit disappointing. Medium finish that stays in far forward in your mouth. Over-proof is undetectable to me. Not bad at all but pricey for what it is. Would like to try this side-by-side with standard Patron.

Aroma - agave forward, pepper, alcohol, cinnamon , banana Flavor - sweet agave, cinnamon, brine, butter Finish - smooth and warm, medium finish, smooth for 90 proof As usual value hurts the score

Bought this in sale for $50. On the nose I get light citrus, grapefruit and sweet cooked agave. On the palate I get Anise, cinnamon, and honey. A little heat on the finish and not as long of a finish as I like or other Tahona crushed tequilas. I like this and look forward to enjoying more. If you find this on sale then by all means get some.

The tequila that regular Patrón should be. Just as smooth (despite a higher proof) but with more pronounced flavor. Unfortunately still suffers from Patrón’s inflated hype and marketing budget and is somewhat overpriced. If you see this on sale, don’t hesitate to pick some up.

Good sweetness with vanilla agave, cinnamon orange. Peppery spicy finish maybe a bit of a bitter note as well.

I read some of the reviews before I tried this. Remember, this is a 90 proof Tequila, it is not an everyday blanco and it does not drink like one. Keep an open mind and know it’s strong stuff. I really like the tahona and brick/stone oven tequilas, and this one was very enjoyable. Very clean aroma and taste, cooked agave can be found under the alcohol aroma and flavor. I expected an alcohol presence with a 90 proof juice, it is not at all overpowering. But the price, oh boy. I liked this, but I liked Fortaleza still strength a little more.

Now that's the kind of raunchy squanchin I like! I imagine that I shall forever associate this bold flavour with evenings spent sitting in the Añejo lounge watching my hapless colleagues close while I sample Oaxaca and Jalisco's finest spirits. Just this very evening my lad Alex Savage angrily brought me a beef taco with no plate. Perhaps I should order another with five mods.

This is a good tequila; don't let the lowet scores overly influence you. Unlike the muted flavor profiles of their core line; Roca Patron is a delicious tequila. Sipping on a glass of Roca Patron Silver. This is 100% Tahona crushed, Horno cooked, charcoal filtered once instead of 3 times like in the core line, distilled in smaller copper pots and also made to a different proof. Cooked agave all day. Very prominent on the nose and in the initial palate. Not a high proof Blanco but the extra proof that is here seems to help put the agave more to the forefront. So; especially if you can find it at the right price. I like to do tequila flights from time to time and even against San Matias Tahona, Tequila Ocho, Pasote, Tapatio and other highly regarded tequilas I feel this tequila still holds up. If you can get past any "Patron" stigma that may be holding you back I think you will be pleasantly surprised. Perhaps less complex than my current favourite

Delicious cooked agave flavor with sweet aromas and fruity notes. You can feel the 45% ABV but it remains very easy to sip.

This silver tequila by Patrón prides itself on being tahona crushed. I found little to none cooked agave flavor and even less agave smell. The finish is hot with a strong alcohol bite. For the price I would not purchase this again and would opt for a Forteleza for a true artisanal tahona blanco.
