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.

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 kids 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.

Gonna have go contrarian. Nose is alcohol. Mouth is akcohol & pepper, with a scant hint of agave. More pepper on the finish. In this price range, I enjoy Olmeca Altos and El Mayor. Tres Agaves I hide in the mix. Espolon I just plain hide.

Doesn't really stand out in any particular way it's just very solid and it is an excellent value for the price.

Tastes like tequila should. Clean and spicy. My favourite (for now). Great price point too.

I'm not sure if I got a bad bottle or something because the Espolon Blanco I have is really TERRIBLE. Strange cause the Reposado is ok for me. Aroma is just overwhelming alcohol/acetone, so much so that it is very hard to pick up any other notes from it. Flavour is just bearable, but then the aftertaste just makes you say "yuck". Reminds me of terrible cheap mixtos and the type of product that gives Tequila such a bad name with most people. I don't recommend this one at all. Go for the Reposado if Espolon is what you want, it's decent for cocktails and won't make you cringe if you sip it. Ordered online in Germany for 22€. NOM 1440.

Clean tequila, transparent, with silver reflections. In nose, first impression high alcohol level, with agave and citrus aroma. Promise of black peeper. In mouth, fresh flavor, silky mouthfeel, has the back pepper flavor in the back taste. It’s a good tequila, recommendable neat or mixed in a cocktail. Good price/quality relationship.

Nose: Agave with a side of alcohol. Taste: Agave with a side of alcohol. Maybe some floral on the front of the tongue. Slight pepper but more of a white than black pepper. It is a very clean flavor. Aftertaste: Longer than expected, but not the most pleasant.

If you prefer your blancos to be on the sweeter side, then this Espolon is for you! Agave, vanilla, and sweet cream are dominant on the nose, with underlying layers that include butter, fruit (cherries, apples, citrus), black & white pepper, veggies, and touch of minerals. This has to be nosed carefully despite being only 80 proof, otherwise the alcohol tries to take over. Flavor is very much what you'd expect from the aroma, with a strong (but not sickeningly so) sweetness from agave and vanilla notes. Not bad for an after dinner drink, or to mix with sweeter cocktails. It's also a bargain at $25.

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.
