El Espolon Tequila Reposado
Reposados
Submitted by Tequila.net     April 06, 2007    
El Espolon NOM-1440, 80 proof (ref to the review below) purchased 4/15/10 from local store $40, sampled from a 6 oz. shot glass neat. The bottle looks old school but is not. Consists of cheap clear glass with stickers doing the rest. The cork top is good for closure. This is a darker repo, med straw in color, leaves some legs down the glass and minimal gathering. Sweet floral/agave nose with alcohol coming through. The body is medium thick with a medicinal taste. This tequila is all about the finish, nice flurry of heat and spice that lingers for a bit, then leaves an oak after taste. Overall, not too bad, but for $40 I would balk at a repurchase.
