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.

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 especially enjoyed cleaning my palate with a small pieces of tomato sprinkled with Himalayan pink salt and a good quality black pepper.

Really surprised by how enjoyable this one was, my palate and tastes have come a long way since rating Espolon's reposado as my very first. This reminds me of El Tesoro with less pepper. Agave is surprisingly present throughout, and I'm getting a vanilla on the very end of the finish. A good mixing option (as I bought it for) but it could function as a casual sipper for a hot day where you don't want to think too much about what's in your glass.

Citrus, alcohol and a bit of agave on the nose. The agave makes it to the palate but quickly dissipates in favor of alcohol and pepper. Nothing special about the finish, but it’s not bad. This isn’t a terrible tequila, but there’s just too many others (Olmeca Altos, Arette, etc.) that are better for only a couple dollars more. This is also very mild and disappears completely in a mixed drink - I can’t taste it at all unless I pour about 0.5-1oz heavier. Likely won’t purchase this again.

Pure alcohol. Thought I was drinking vodka for a second. Some vanilla notes but does not make up for that awful finish. Bad batch maybe.

Aroma: great sweet agave Taste: minerals, watery, alcohol some heat; great budget sipper not sure what tool me si long to try Finish: still has agave on the tongue and some tingle

On the nose: loads of ethanol, nail polish remover. There's still some noticeable agave aromas, along with some vanilla, yeast, and citrus, but the alcohol is overpowering. The tastes isn't as sharp as the nose, but there's not a lot going on. Alcohol, citrus, white pepper, and there's something grainy going on. Reminds me a bit of corn. The finish is short and not unpleasant, but it's not very memorable. Completely adequate mixing tequila, but for $40 Cnd you can find better tequila.

Arette is incredibly superior @ same price point. But, for a widely available restaurant and bar option I have been known to select this over Don Julio, etc. Nothing special or pronounced, but an acceptable pour. Banana, agave, mint, pepper.

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.
