I look for a reposado to offer both great taste and great value, the Espolon didn't taste great to me neat but worked well in margaritas. The taste was a little off from what I like...maybe had a bit too much whisky flavor for me to love neat but it is growing on me a bit..

A bargain, the best cheap tequila?

Immediately after pouring and going to the nose you are hit by creamy big butter and vanilla. After letting it sit in glass for a few more seconds that dissipates. What is left is a green agave a touch of ethanol from the alcohol and maybe a touch of barrel spice hiding in the back. Palate is smooth and tastes of green agave with light sour note.

To me, this is an excellent place to start with sipping tequila. The price is more than fair, and this is pretty good stuff. Much more complexity than you’d expect from a $24 bottle.

Now, I'm not saying this is a 5 star top of the line premium tequila but...it is the MOST underrated tequila out there. I understand this was originally a pricey bottle in the $80 range but then the powers to be wanted to compete in a market with more traffic so a redesigned bottle was incorporated with a more meager price point ($23 or so). Typically not found on the top shelf of your favorite retail joint but don't be misled by its placement. It's worthy of a purchase!! I've had many tequilas and this beats a lot of the pricier bottles. Please don't believe me but do discover for yourself

Ok flavor, a bit harsh. Did not experience anything close to "intense vanilla".......

When this is on sale it's a fantastic deal. At full price less so.

This gets the most points for nose and price point.

Amazing value at $20! The only tequila that is a better value, in my opinion, is Costco's Kirkland Signature.

A strong smell of alcohol and not agave. A burning medicinal after-taste. Drinkable but not top choice.

For 25 bucks, this is a steal! People saying for the money there are better options, but wont say what they are?! Is it the best juice? Of course not but for the price point and what you get, its very comparable in my opinion.

Nose: fresh, lemon oil, young pineapple; light vanilla and cream Mouth: very creamy, slight sweetness; slight burn in the back; green apples? Finish: a bit sharp, but sustained; not terribly aromatic

A little more burn then I like for a sipping tequila but is great for mixing without breaking the bank.

I was surprised to see this tequila rated as high as it is. I found the after taste to be unpleasant and could pick it out in a blind taste test by it.

First taste. Room temperature. The nose is very subtle. Hints of liquorice and spice but you have to take a deep breath to get the full effect. Taste is also subtle. Woody with a long finish. Feel in the mouth is oily, which I personally like. Overall , there are better choices at this price point. But still has solid mouth feel and a nice long finish.

I really liked this one. I went to the local grocery store. Used this app to check out all the tequila and it gave this one the highest. Went back and got a second bottle for a friend.

A very trendy tequila right now. It makes fantastic margaritas. But burns quite a bit if tasted straight. For the price it is pretty good but I suspect once the hype is gone few will care about it. A good starter tequila; nice complexity of flavours and aroma.

Aroma: Baked agave, honey and grass. Taste: more of the same with pepper front and caramel Finish: pleasant long lasting throat warming. Sweet undertones. This is really great price point tequila. Nice sipper. Don't be afraid to serve to an experienced tequila drinker. Will not disappoint.
