The aroma was indeed filled with a citrus note but overwhelming filled with scathing ethyl as well. The pepperiness was only subdued slightly by letting the bottle rest for a few days. Their is a noticeable taste of cooked agave but overall a bit too rough to constantly enjoy neat.

This is a decent mixer for when you are having a big party and want to make margaritas for a bunch of people who could care less if the tequila is of high quality

This was a bit of a pleasant surprise after seeing mixed reviews. Thought the aroma and flavor were pretty good with a nice amount of cooked agave and pepper. Not very complex. The finish was a little rough and got hints of a metallic/chemical aftertaste. It gets points for me for the price point and I’d be happy to use it as a mixer.

Anise, cough syrup, sour apple candy. Loads of white pepper, a tad thin with a burn through the brief finishes Not meant to be a sipper, but an affordable mixer that’s still crafted with some care and is accessible.

Herbal and alcohol aroma. Bland flavor with a little pepper. Mild finish. Good mixer.

Nose of the vanilla, sweet agave, vegetal, light pepper, light citrus, with a slight solvent presence and a bit of alcohol buzzing about. On taste- vegetal, sweet, light citrus, alcohol, and a hint of a glue like solvent. Overall bland and light, but a decent inexpensive daily tequila (especially for mixing) but not great as a sipper.

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.

Downgraded rating from 80. Something has changed with Espolon in the past couple of yrs, it has an unnatural aftertaste and sweetness to it (like Don Julio) that is off-putting to me. Can no longer recommend it as a good budget brand

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 bits of sweetness on the back end, it’s PERFECT for making margs!!

Mexican 38% version. Nose has fresh floral notes with some alcohol. Fruity, with citrus and agave. A mineral element as well. 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!

This is one of the most affordable tequilas on the market, and you can get it just about everywhere. It's best used for cocktails, and since its 100% agave, you'll be grateful the next morning.

Surprisingly complex nose of cooked agave, herbs, earth, pineapple and clove. Simple but pleasant taste of roast agave, black pepper and clove. Thin and soft, with a decent if astringent finish. Great value.

Why 83? Solid blanco for the price point in Texas. Good agave, finish isn’t too harsh. This is my go to mixer and I use for infusing.

nose: Agave forward with notes of citrus smoke, acetone and pepper palate: Agave, smoke, harsh bite, anise with medicinal notes finish: artificial medicinal after taste Ok for an inexpensive tequila for mixed drinks

Aroma and palate were the same. Slight vanilla with a hint of agave. The viscosity was thin like water and no finish at all. A mixer at best.

On the nose, butter and baking spices and cooked agave. some ethanol, but it's the neck pour, so I make allowances for that. on the palate: agave and citrus give way to black pepper. The finish is warm and long. pretty great as a value sipper and BALLER in a cocktail.

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.
