Patron XO Cafe coffee liqueur

Today I am reviewing Patron XO Cafe Coffee Liquor.It has a natural coffee essence so is more like coffee flavored tequila than a liqueur. Patron silver and anejo are very popular but I had never tried their coffee liqueur so decided to give it a shot. Patron was established in 1989, not the oldest of distilleries around but it sure has made it's presence as a good tequila brand all over the world.  Now let's get to the tasting info to reveal how it's sweet tasting liquor has to offer.

I don't like sweet alcohol too much. I will have it occasionally as a nice after dinner desert but can't do it as a regular drink. However it is quite smooth and enjoyable.

Some Sweet humor 😄😄

Bad Excuse
Harry was sick and tired of being constantly badgered by his wife Barbara for spending so much time at the bar. Hoping it would help matters, Harry invited Barbara along with him. "So what would you like?" harry cordially asked, as she took her seat next to him. "Oh I don't know" Barbara replied, "I guess I'll take the same thing as you." "OK" said Harry to the bartender, "We'll take two Johnny Walker's on the rocks!" Barbara barely took a sip of the drink before she started gagging "Oh my gosh! Get me a cup of water! This stuff is horrible! How do you drink this garbage?" "See?" said Harry "and you think I come here just to have a good time?!"
