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.

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!
