This was a bit of a pleasant surprise after seeing mixed reviews. Thought the aroma and flavor were pretty good with a nice amount of cooked agave and pepper. Not very complex. The finish was a little rough and got hints of a metallic/chemical aftertaste. It gets points for me for the price point and I’d be happy to use it as a mixer.

Anise, cough syrup, sour apple candy. Loads of white pepper, a tad thin with a burn through the brief finishes Not meant to be a sipper, but an affordable mixer that’s still crafted with some care and is accessible.

Nose of the vanilla, sweet agave, vegetal, light pepper, light citrus, with a slight solvent presence and a bit of alcohol buzzing about. On taste- vegetal, sweet, light citrus, alcohol, and a hint of a glue like solvent. Overall bland and light, but a decent inexpensive daily tequila (especially for mixing) but not great as a sipper.

Aroma : Citrus, alcohol, agave. Taste : Light citrus and agave, lightly peppery with some alcohol. Very mild flavor. Finish : Short/medium length with a little more agave here. Overall a fairly bland tequila. But unlike other budget tequilas like Arette or Olmeca Altos, I can find this just about anywhere, which is good if you need something last minute to bring to a party.

Downgraded rating from 80. Something has changed with Espolon in the past couple of yrs, it has an unnatural aftertaste and sweetness to it (like Don Julio) that is off-putting to me. Can no longer recommend it as a good budget brand

There is nothing outstanding going on here but I will always have a soft spot for this product.....it’s just so easy to drink for so cheap!! Tight and bitter at first and then bits of sweetness on the back end, it’s PERFECT for making margs!!

Mexican 38% version. Nose has fresh floral notes with some alcohol. Fruity, with citrus and agave. A mineral element as well. 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!

This is one of the most affordable tequilas on the market, and you can get it just about everywhere. It's best used for cocktails, and since its 100% agave, you'll be grateful the next morning.

A lot going on for an inexpensive tequila. I concur with the other reviews.

Surprisingly complex nose of cooked agave, herbs, earth, pineapple and clove. Simple but pleasant taste of roast agave, black pepper and clove. Thin and soft, with a decent if astringent finish. Great value.

I have two tequilas I will always recommend for mixing. This and Olmeca. Quite simply, you cannot go wrong with them. No harshness whatsoever, but the agave earthy taste is very obviously there, making for simply wonderful margaritas, sunrises, ranch waters, you name it. If you want to sip, there are better options but it is hard to argue with in any way.

Lote: LDN/LA28B, bottled on 06-02-2023, Mexican 38% abv. version, tasted on 10-4-23. Aroma: light cooked agave, alcohol sensation starts medium to high, once it is oxygenated, it softens a little but ethanol aromas are quite dominating, a touch of citrus, slightly earthy. Palate: raw agave, light green notes, alcohol sensation is medium but ethanol aromas quite intense, lacks flavors. Finish is medium to medium high, very light cooked agave with ethanol sensation persists.

Scent alcohol, agave Taste: citrus, agave, paper, ending is very bitter, after you taste this ending it now over powers the first initial taste, it’s harsh Final comments after drinking bottles of Ocho, G4; Tapatio, Fortaleza, Lalo, El Tesoro, mejenta, Don’t drink this again this is harsh, best to drink it with margaritas but not alone. For $8 more get El Tesoro.

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.
