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.

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.

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 cant comment on its qualities as a sipping tequila…but i made several cocktails with it; simple margarita - fresh orange lime agave Paloma - fever tree grapefruit fresh lime Ranch water - topo chico fresh lime Mexican mule - fever tree ginger beer fresh lime All were great tasting. The tequila flavor came through nicely and for $24 for 750ml i would definitley make this my go to for cocktails.

As to wish for a lite burn, agave forward. Very silky and excellent mouthfeel. I got white pepper, agave, a hint of citrus. Very smooth with a lite finish. Good straight or margaritas. I probably wouldn’t use it in Palomas as I like a stronger finish. Excellent Tequila for the price. I keep a bottle in my bar.

Not to smooth up front but don’t go down to bad. Flavor is okay but great for the price. I would buy again but it’s definitely made for mixing and not drinking straight.

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.
