Hearing a lot about Hermosa Tequila, I purchased a bottle of the Hermosa Añejo Tequila and again decided to add a review. I am a huge fan of reposado, but there is many times you want a longer finish that añejo tequila presents. I pulled out my fancy tequila glasses and opened the bottle, the aroma was incredible. I poured a few ounces in a glass and found the aroma growing wood, spice, vanilla… I swirled it and found long legs that slowly dripped down the side of the glass. I could wait no longer and took a few sips and was impressed with the balance of spice, wood and sweet. I know the 1414 NOM distillery and know they make some amazing blanco and silver tequilas, yet this añejo is right up there with the top añejo tequila brands I have tasted. The finish is sweet yet leaves your mouth salivating wanting more, it truly is a beautifully made tequila. This is at the top of my favorites in the añejo category and for under $60 retail it is well worth the money, very smooth, with a long finish 10/10.

I had the opportunity to try this new tequila that will be out later this month. Wow, I have tasted many tequila brands but this tequila was so smooth I ended up drinking most of the bottle. This is an ultra premium silver tequila that is very drinkable and hang-over free, no impurities and made from 100% Agave. They said they will be out with a reposado and añejo soon as both are in barrels right now.

ROCA PATRÓN SILVER, this tequila really did surprise me, I did a taste test against a handful of other silver tequila brands including the regular PATRÓN SILVER and ROCA PATRÓN came out on top not just with me but with two friends that were doing the blind tasting with me.
So here we have it, ROCA PATRÓN is a handcrafted 100% de agave tequila. After doing a bit of research I found out that this version of PATRÓN uses the finest weber blue agave that this company has available. Their finest agave is all used on the ROCA brand. They slow roast their Weber Blue Agave and then crush it with a two ton tahona stone wheel, the original/traditional way to crush agave. The juice is then fermented and distilled with the agave fibers. All this adds to a very complex taste with earthy tones and a long smooth finish. I highly recommend the ROCA PATRÓN SILVER, another sign is when it’s the first empty bottle on the table. I found a great price online if you want to order bottle Liquorama liquor store has a great price.
