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.

I have not been a great fancier of reposados, but this one, coupled with its price point makes me rethink things.

Packaging with its metal export label is simple but elegant. Nose is rich and full of agave, earth and spice. Sweet attack caresses the tongue as it rolls to a pleasantly bitter body which offers more agave and spice. Aroma deepens with more bright agave and wood notes. Finishes moderately with a very agreeable tingle.

This is a well crafted and well priced reposado.

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.
