Gentle flavors overall. Alcohol is very balanced. Nice agave and butterscotch flavors. Fast finish with a little white pepper flavor.

Mexican 38% version. Nose has fresh floral notes with some alcohol. Fruity, with citrus and agave. Round ripe fruit on the palate. A little pepper kick. Spices and a banana like nuance. Coats the tongue nicely. A very solid economy brand. I’m surprised how much flavor is packed into an autoclave and column still product!

Has been our “go-to” for cocktails. One of the best bargains in tequila.

Best value blanco tequila I’ve seen, I like the reposado better, but if I wanted to bring a tequila with a heavy hit of tequila flavour somewhere , this would be it.

High marks for being one of the rare, affordable non-diffuser tequilas available here in Ontario, Canada. It's clean, agave-forward, dependable and tasty. Is it high-end, premium tequila? Probably not.... But it beats the hell out of Patron at less than half the price, and is priced equivalently to diffuser brands like Cazadores or 1800 or El Jimador. Extra marks for being authentic!

A decent, if not wowing, blanco. Mostly let down by a thin body, and slightly bitter finish. For $20, you can do worse, but I wouldn't recommend it over other similarly priced blancos from Cimarron, Altos, or Azteca Azul.

This was an unremarkable blanco. The aroma was nice but the agave flavor was quickly lost to more alcohol or solvent flavors with some peppery bites mixed in. The finish was very smooth but finished quickly leaving me with that unremarkable feeling.

This delivers superb smoothness, sweetness, and sophistication as well as nice complexity. Very delicious, I'd recommend keeping some around. If they could figure out the finish this stuff would be a juggernaut! Nice!

Good starter tequila. Drinkable on its own. But very sweet forward and the aftertaste is like holding a marshmallow and pop rocks in your mouth at the same time.

Tasted in a tasting glass. Clear with minimal legs, not very thick or oily. Aroma is a little strong with agave, alcohol and black pepper. Taste was good with a lower burn than was expected with the nose. Gets a decent rating due to the value at $20 a bottle. Mixes pretty well. Would choose over Milagro but not Olmeca Altos.

Aroma is salty, slightly sour. Mild ethanol scent. Not unpleasant, but not the best part of this tequila. Medium burn when shooting. Mildly sweet when sipping with a gentle warmth down the throat. Body is light, dry. Finish is clean, doesn't linger.

Decent nose with agave and slight vanilla. Palate isn't great a little rough, finish is sharp and short. Overall, this is a good tequila for mixing as the pepper and agave shine in a margarita. Much better tequilas out there to sip.

Not the best blanco by far but what you get at a bargain price tag is a smooth tequila that mixes well with a hint of pepper. Best for throwing parties without breaking the bank.

Muy suave, poco alcohol. Gran valor, es verde y con agave cocido. No necesita ni sal o limón pues no quema

Mild, almost sweet smell. Clean and smooth upfront. A little harsh on the backend. Makes a nice Paloma.

For the price and flavor, this is the latest go to at the casa, during fiestas. Love this one over ice and squeezed limon.

Review #260 - Espolon Tequila Blanco

Being the type of guy who's always on the lookout for a good value, I found it nearly impossible to pass up Espolon when I saw it for under $20. It's a good brand from a good distillery.
