Great value. Light citrus and agave nose. Much more punch on the palate with a nice warm finish. Can't get a better tequila at this price point.

There is nothing outstanding going on here but I will always have a soft spot for this product.....it’s just so easy to drink for so cheap!! Tight and bitter at first and then kids of sweetness on the back end, it’s PERFECT for making margs!!

This is nice but I can't help feeling that there's a flavour there that masks the rest and shouldn't be there.

SHOOTING TEQUILA RATING. As a shot I would imagine most people would want a lime and salt to accompany this tequila. An experienced tequila drinker could shoot this with a slight shudder. At 40 dollars a bottle though this would be a hit at any house party and could possibly pique the interest of anyone’s tequila journey.

Cooked agave, vanilla, black pepper and light mint come through in the aroma. The mouth feel is soft, with subtle vegetal notes and light agave sweetness with a black pepper finish. overall a solid choice for mixing. It isn't bad by itself but not much going on overall.

Fresh agave and alcohol on the nose. Taste is agave and pepper but a strong alcohol taste that over powers the experience in my opinion. The finish is light with an alcohol burn. I would like to try the reposado.

Solvent, fresh agave and grass on the nose. Peppery sweet citrus taste, with cut grass undertones. Slight artificial sweetener taste. Pepper alcohol finish. It would probably be good in a mixed drink.

Herbal, green on the nose. Light flavor but burns on the tip of the tongue. Mineral like finish

Look, I know it’s a cheap tequila - it was the first one I tried. I loved the smell of it - kind of nutty and chocolatey - it was smooth and crisp, good taste, good feel. I really liked it. It hooked me in the spirit!

Gentle flavors overall. Alcohol is very balanced. Nice agave and butterscotch flavors. Fast finish with a little white pepper flavor.

Mexican 38% version. Nose has fresh floral notes with some alcohol. Fruity, with citrus and agave. Round ripe fruit on the palate. A little pepper kick. Spices and a banana like nuance. Coats the tongue nicely. A very solid economy brand. I’m surprised how much flavor is packed into an autoclave and column still product!

Best value blanco tequila I’ve seen, I like the reposado better, but if I wanted to bring a tequila with a heavy hit of tequila flavour somewhere , this would be it.

Review #260 - Espolon Tequila Blanco

Being the type of guy who's always on the lookout for a good value, I found it nearly impossible to pass up Espolon when I saw it for under $20. It's a good brand from a good distillery.
