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.

As mentioned in one of the previous reviews the bottle I have is the 38% alc/vol.
Pleasant aroma of lemon, the initial taste as previously mentioned is a bit hot and does settle down extremely quickly with some honey and vanilla on the palate. The body is pleasant but not spectacular as is the finish overall quite enjoyable, the price is good for 46$ cdn and the presentation was rustic and again pretty good for the price. I will be buying this again!

Tasted at home out of a snifter. Espolon reposado is a great value. I really love the aroma on this one. THat was my favorite part. That being said, however, this is a reposado that doesnt over impress, but doesnt dissapoint. At $24, this reposado is a great value.

Aroma: A nice comlex nose of pepper, vanilla, cinnamon, and agave. Wow!
Initial Taste: A semi oily mouth feel, a sweet entry with no bitterness. Initial taste of slight vsnillsa.
Body: A simple body of agave smoke, and cinnamon.
Finish: A slightly heated finish of short duration with a woody agave lingering.

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.

Interesting bottle with a beautiful color. The nose is wonderful and the type of Agave, wood, floral & spice nose that I like. It comes across the palate a little hot but smooths out quickly and finishes lingering and positive. On the Rocks Sipping Tequila.
