This review after the second bottle of Espolon Reposado. The fact that I bought it again tells me I must have liked it.Has a great nose with agave and hints of vanilla. Ditto for the initial taste...vanilla,agave and a hints honey smoothness. This tequila has a great body...well rounded and the finish offers a nice even glow every time. Very enjoyable on its own or in a mix whether in a perfect margarita or a Vampiro shooter at room temperature.The price?...was right @ $24 a bottle. Great buy and I don't know why the packaging only gets an 88 overall... I liked it and give it a 95. Viva Dia de los Muertos motif!... Works for me.

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.

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.

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.

I should mention this is a 38% alcohol (produced for and purchased in Mexico) version.

Nose is dry, oaky, almost pleasantly dusty. Nothing special about the mouthfeel. The taste is mildly oaky, very floral, slightly fruity and yet still somehow a bit dry. Well-balanced. Finish is smooth but unremarkable.
