OK, we’ll get to the results of the tequila tasting in a moment. But first… an introduction. I present to you The Traveling Taster! A fellow Bon Vivant, and certainly he knows how to Savor his Life! He’ll be occasionally stopping in to provide a different perspective on flavor. If you enjoy his visits please let him know! And so, without further adieu… I give you The Traveling Taster and his review of fine tequila.
When it comes to rating spirits, I am a novice with no formal training, nor do I profess to be an expert about adult beverages. So with that said, I’m sharing my opinion of, “I like what I like.”
Today I ventured to compare two Tequilas. Añejo Patron, and Añejo Senor Rio tequila. Añejo means vintage or old in Spanish.
My first tasting was Añejo Patron. It has a very light amber color. Its bouquet is mildly sharp, sending a subtle disbursement to the back of one’s nostrils. Its introduction to the tongue and palate are lively and festive, presenting a warm awakening upon reaching the esophagus. A spirit that is full of vigor.
My second tasting was of Añejo Senor Rio tequila was very different and pleasantly surprising. It possesses a rich golden hue. Its bouquet is of an earthy/woodsy flourish however, its palate introduction suggests a confident floral effervesce. These two seemingly contradictions meld to augment its essence.
I favored the Añejo Senor Rio tequila. Now, you may or may not agree so, give them both a try and let your olfactory senses determine if “you like, what you like.”
