Patron Ahumado Reposado

Today’s entry is a treat from Patron. More on that later, First I want to talk a little about price.

We have always referred to JJ’s as an “Enhanced Adult Beverage Experience”. What does that mean? It means we are more than just a “liquor store”. But it doesn’t mean we aren’t a discount liquor store.

We are an adult beverage retail store that excels in providing you with the best service, product selection and price. Providing you with the optimal value you deserve when shopping for your favorite adult beverages.

Many folks will automatically just assume that because we offer this “enhanced adult beverage experience” that we also charge a premium price for the goods that we we sell. This is simply just not the case. We charge a premium price for the services that we provide through JJ’s Bar, JJ’s Events and our other service related components, because service is key!

That being said, when it comes to your goods that you purchase to enjoy at home, we offer the best value in price with our JJ’s VIP Rewards Program, and nobody can deny that the value is there. We have never wanted to be categorized as a “discount liquor store”, but the tail the tape tells a different story. I encourage you, if you are reading this, to pay close attention to the value you get in shopping with us. That combined with the service we are known for, makes us the ONLY choice when it comes to your retail shopping! Being voted Sioux Falls Local Best for adult beverage retail shopping for 15 years straight, the last three years in the #1 spot, also means that a lot of folks know this all to be true!

Back to tequila!

Patron likes to stir the pot occasionally with some special, limited offerings that really take things up a notch when enjoying quality tequila. This one is no exception.

The agaves (Weber Blue Agave, if you want to get technical) are slowly cooked over mesquite charcoal to give the mash a distinct smokiness, much like mezcal, but with the flavor and character that is unmistakably Patron. Aged for a short period oak casks and then bottled with a nice golden color.

Tom’s Tasting Notes: I love mezcal. I also love tequila. It’s kind of become my new jam. The combination of the two  distinct flavor profiles in this limited offering from Patron makes for a very tasty sipper. Lovely caramel and vanilla notes with a woody backbone and smoky finish.
