Patrón XO Cafe
Patrón // Los Altos, Jalisco, Mexico

Coffee/Chocolate LiqueursBoth coffee and chocolate liqueurs are often dark in color and tend to use real coffee and/or chocolate in its creation. But artificial flavors can be used. Often neutral spirits are used as the base but any liquor family can be used.
"The roasted coffee notes come through loud and clear with agave notes hanging out in the background. The liqueur has a medium body and is sweet, but not cloying. Bitter coffee notes match it to make it palatable on its own. Good news if you're a tequila fan, the tequila flavor isn't completely overtaken by the coffee. In fact, it matches so well with the coffee you can enjoy the liqueur on its own, but go ahead and make some cocktails with it. "
