Review: Roca Patrón Anejo Tequila

Posted by Arctic Wolf on August 8, 2022

Roca Patrón Tequila is a pure 100% Agave Tequila made from agave grown in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico. The agave is 6 to 7 years old when harvested, and the heart of the plant or the piña is all that is used. After harvest the piñas are chopped in half by hand and slowly steamed in masonry brick ovens for about 79 hours to soften them. The softened piñas are then shredded and placed into a traditional stone pit, where they are crushed by a large 2 ton stone milling wheel called a Tahona.

Roca Patrón Anejo Tequila is distilled twice in copper pot stills , and then aged for about 14 months in used American oak bourbon barrels. The lightly aged spirit is bottled at 44 % alcohol by volume.

Here is a link to my review which completes my analysis of the Roca Patron line-up:

Review: Roca Patrón Anejo Tequila

“… Fruity, punky, aggressive agave with a light sweetness combines with vanilla and more oak than I would have thought for a spirit rested for only 14 months. The agave sort of hangs in the air giving us notes of banana, grilled plantain, and baked squash. There is also a larger amount of black and white pepper apparent than I found in the blanco and reposado versions of the Roca Patron …”

Please enjoy the review and for you enjoyment I have included the links to my previous reviews of the Roca Patron Blanco and Reposado Tequilas below.
