Tequila lovers, rejoice! Patron has done it again with their latest release, the Patron Ahumado Reposado Tequila. Aged in oak barrels for up to 6 months and infused with the rich, smoky flavor of mesquite wood, this tequila is a true delight for the senses. In this blog post, we'll explore the creation process of Patron Ahumado Reposado Tequila, its unique flavor profile, and some of the best ways to enjoy it.
The Creation Process: Like all Patron tequilas, the Ahumado Reposado is made from 100% Weber Blue Agave grown in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico. The agave is slowly roasted over mesquite wood, which imparts a unique smoky flavor to the tequila. After being crushed and fermented, the tequila is then double-distilled in small copper stills before being aged for up to 6 months in oak barrels. The result is a rich and complex tequila with a unique smoky flavor.
On the nose, the smoky aroma of mesquite wood is immediately apparent, followed by notes of vanilla and caramel. On the palate, the tequila is rich and full-bodied, with flavors of roasted agave, oak, and smoke. The finish is long and smooth, with a subtle sweetness that lingers on the tongue.
Pairing Suggestions: Patron Ahumado Reposado Tequila is a versatile tequila that pairs well with a wide range of foods. The smoky flavor of the tequila makes it an excellent pairing for grilled meats, particularly beef and pork. It also pairs well with strong flavors like blue cheese and dark chocolate. For a refreshing summer cocktail, try mixing it with grapefruit juice and a splash of soda water.
