Probably the best value readily available tequila. Very tasty and doesn’t break the bank!

Tastes like tequila should. Clean and spicy. My favourite (for now)

I'm not sure if I got a bad bottle or something because the Espolon Blanco I have is really TERRIBLE. Strange cause the Reposado is ok for me. Aroma is just overwhelming alcohol/acetone, so much so that it is very hard to pick up any other notes from it. Flavour is just bearable, but then the aftertaste just makes you say "yuck". Reminds me of terrible cheap mixtos and the type of product that gives Tequila such a bad name with most people. I don't recommend this one at all. Go for the Reposado if Espolon is what you want, it's decent for cocktails and won't make you cringe if you sip it. Ordered online in Germany for 22€. NOM 1440.

peppery and agave

Clean tequila, transparent, with silver reflections. In nose, first impression high alcohol level, with agave and citrus aroma. Promise of black peeper. In mouth, fresh flavor, silky mouthfeel, has the back pepper flavor in the back taste. It’s a good tequila, recommendable neat or mixed in a cocktail. Good price/quality relationship.

Nose: Agave with a side of alcohol. Taste: Agave with a side of alcohol. Maybe some floral on the front of the tongue. Slight pepper but more of a white than black pepper. It is a very clean flavor. Aftertaste: Longer than expected, but not the most pleasant.

If you prefer your blancos to be on the sweeter side, then this Espolon is for you! Agave, vanilla, and sweet cream are dominant on the nose, with underlying layers that include butter, fruit (cherries, apples, citrus), black & white pepper, veggies, and touch of minerals. This has to be nosed carefully despite being only 80 proof, otherwise the alcohol tries to take over. Flavor is very much what you'd expect from the aroma, with a strong (but not sickeningly so) sweetness from agave and vanilla notes. Not bad for an after dinner drink, or to mix with sweeter cocktails. It's also a bargain at $25.

I do not enjoy this tequila. I find it smoky and it’s like drinking rubbing alcohol.

A safe choice, and a great tequila that you can find almost anywhere.

Pretty much all cooked agave in aroma and flavour, with a hint of pepper. Not awful but not special. Great value.

would make a great base for cocktails and margaritas. Hints of citrus, so fruity margaritas would be perfect

Nose: Rubber, grassiness, cooked agave, and faded black pepper. Palate: Dry with a medium body. Butter, cooked agave, solvent, and black pepper. Finish: Short. Alcohol and minerality.

If cacti produced nuts this is how I imagine they might taste.

My go to tequila currently! Slight peppery finish, but overall pretty darn smooth for a midshelf!

Aroma : Citrus, alcohol, agave. Taste : Light citrus and agave, lightly peppery with some alcohol. Very mild flavor. Finish : Short/medium length with a little more agave here. Overall a fairly bland tequila. But unlike other budget tequilas like Arette or Olmeca Altos, I can find this just about anywhere, which is good if you need something last minute to bring to a party.

This is a great Tequila to mix large scale cocktails. the Value of this brand is fantastic and it has a very strong aggressive taste that can withstand mixers.

This is a great value tequila. Flavor comes in strong at first with agave and pepper, then finishes smooth with citrus, which I like.

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.
