This is the best of the 3 expressions. Many of the bitterest notes are gone but not entirely. Anyone who is expecting a sweet smooth sip will have their face slapped around by this. Nose is tobacco, cedar wood adds to the humidor impression. Some oak and barrel spice in the mouth with some citric acidity and little sweetness. Finish is just a bit shorter than the blanco and reposado.

The barrel mutes some of the more astringint elements of the blanco but introduces other ones that I don't care for. The tongue buzz for this is almost entirely mid top. Again a fairly long finish but it fares worse than the blanco overall. Rating 750 30/06/2019

This starts out with sweetness which passes quickly to bitter elements of brine and ethanol. The finish isn't bad with good length and some tip and side of tongue buzzing. Reminds me of the Technico more than the Arrogante from this distillery. Nice cast glass bottle along with the tequila and $$ make this worth a try but many may not care to.

This is one of those tequilas that really needs an ice chip. It goes from meh, to pretty wonderful at its price point. Nose - oaky caramel toffee.. vanilla hint of fruit Taste - I get different then flavor profile.. I get creamy vanilla up front that turns to hints of chocolate, pepper and bust agave. Finish - long peppery chocolate fades to a mild burn with maybe slight hints of dark cherry or apricot then oak. I like it. But it’s not the most bang for you’re buck. The Anejo is only like $2 more and is just so so good. With food I’d prefer Espolon Repo for almost $5-$6 less. So.. at the end of the day I will always have a bottle of the Anejo around and open along with the Espolon Repo for food. I singed the value because for so little more you can have the amazing Anejo.

Really nice Anejo for the money, in fact I like this better than many at triple the price. There is an alcohol in the smell, taste and finish, but not bad. It smells sweet to me, oak, butterscotch, citrus. The taste doesn’t disappoint, Oak, butterscotch, dark chocolate. Finish dark chocolate, burnt agave, alcohol, oak At $29 a bottle this is likely going to be my daily first sipper. I don’t think it will replace Espolon repo for ceviche/taco/tamale meals.. but for sipping this is really nice at that price point. I even really like the presentation. The bottle is a nice shape with raised glass lettering. The label is happy and fits the taste.
