It's a solid tequila for the price. The smell starts out with a hint of light agave and a little spice and some floral hints. You certainly taste a lot of grass and earth-like meld in your mouth. Couldn't really taste a ton of the agave, I'd say a little roasted agave. It's got a little burn at the end, and it lingers a on your tongue. Probably best for mixing and enjoying with some herb ;) since it's got a grass-like taste to it.

At $14.98 a bottle when it's on sale, $17.98 otherwise, it's usually all that I buy. It's the best bang for the buck that I've found out there to date. It mixes well and it's quite passable for sipping.

Some reviewers complain about the simple bottle. Does it really affect the flavor any? I rather like the bottle. Easy to hold, easy to store (not some awkward bottle that looks like a US state or too tall and narrow to fit into the liquor cabinet), and after drinking the empties make great Molotov's.

Tasted 02/11/15 from a Riedel Tequila Glass.
Aroma: Light and crisp, roasted agave with fruit, citrus, and spice notes.
Initial Taste: Peppery agave with vegetal notes. Not real complex but a nice full agave body that is smooth with no alcohol burn.
Body: Light slow tears on glass and a medium-light mouth feel. Agave and spicy flavors are well balanced.
Finish: Medium-long sweet agave with a spicy finish that lingers on the tongue.
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.

El Espolon is a very affordable blanco that I enjoyed sipping and it would also be a good mixer.

Cheap and Decent- Barely a Sipper-But Good for Mix

El Espolon is an inexpensive tequila, good for mixing. The nose has slight floral, with a fruity, slightly spicy and peppery aroma. The initial taste is light oil, and has an alcohol burn to a pepper and spice taste. NOTHING FANCY going on here. The finish is HOT, maybe bitter. To me this is about the bottom of what I would try to sip.- Long Island Lou Tequila

I bought Espolon because I was getting into tequila and it was very affordable ($23.99). It mixed well but lacks character. The bottle isn't very fancy similar to its contents.

I always sample my tequila neat before mixing and it was very pleasant - just didn't really wow me.

I have grown a lot in the way I treat and drink my tequila and I think that it is entirely possible that I could enjoy this tequila more than previously.

I toured the Wild Turkey Bourbon distillery and saw a bottle of El Espolon in their sampling lab. Apparently, the two beverages are owned by the same conglomerate.
