El Espolon Reposado Tequila

El Espolon Reposado Tequila - The harmonious bouquet and brilliant golden color are due to the attentive and painstaking production process of Espolon Reposado Tequila. With Tequila aging in mind, our white-oak barrels have been carefully designed and constructed to house the spirit for six months, giving it a balance of agave and mild wood flavor.

Tasted 1/3/15 from a Riedel Tequila Glass.
Appearance: Pale amber color.
Aroma: A mild aroma of agave, oak, caramel, and fruit.
Initial Taste: Very smooth agave and oak with light vanilla and pear flavors and a subtle earth note.
Body: Medium body with slow tears on the glass and light, buttery mouth feel. The flavors are not real complex but balance each other nicely.
Finish: Medium-length smooth finish of agave, oak, and vanilla notes followed by a mild agave kick, fading into a slight wood or earthy after taste.
Price: $18.99 to $29.99 (RRP: $24.99)
Presentation: A short squat bottle with a synthetic cork stopper. The artwork on the bottle label is a traditional “Dia de los Muertos” style, which I do not find appealing. (80)

This reposado is a good value in $20 price range. It is versatile in that it is a good mixer and also a decent sipping tequila. However, the flavors aren’t very robust or overly complex, which is what you would expect for a value brand.

I was really pleased to see this tequila become available in Ontario. It's exactly what I had hoped it would be; a solid, tasty reposado at a good price.

Initially I smelled agave and cinnamon, some vanilla. More vanilla on the initial taste with a hint of the wood. Nice legs in the glass and a bit of spice to finish. I suspect this will become a regular in my house.

Tried El Espolón Reposado at a friend's house, room temperature out of a shot glass. I've seen it in stores and the bottle is just different enough to be interesting. At the onset, I didn't get much vanilla aroma, but there was definitely a sweetness, maybe more of a light citrus or mango fruit? Has a good consistency in the glass; it is ever so slightly oily with nice adhesion, or legs. Initial agave and alcohol hit subsides nicely into a balance of flavor and mild burn going down. Aftertaste definitely shows signs of the charred wood and agave; not overpowering, but still slightly complex. El Espolón Reposado is a good all around reposado with nice natural taste that finishes clean. I could mix this stuff or sip on it no problem.

A great value tequila...period.

Aroma: Agave, vanilla and cinnamon. Very nice.
Initial Taste: Sweet taste with a lot of vanilla. Very pleasant.
Body: A little light and oily. The agave comes forward the spices come through a bit more.
Finish: Basic, but pleasant finish. A bit of alcohol and spice tingle to round out a very nice drink.

For $20, you can't get a better tequila. I'd recommend it to anyone. Very basic, but cool bottle.
