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.

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.

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!

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.
