Some cooked agave but more raw agave on the nose….herbal vegetal with some citrus. Orange peel flavor with spearmint with a bite and a long finish…. Not overly complex. Nice affordable sipper, probably would be good in a cocktail.

This is a sleeper. Has the matalitic funkiness on the nose. Taste opens up to a major sweetness of a sugary spearmint gum, little orange peel This is surprising me.

My new mixing tequila for parties. There’s enough cooked agave and balance with the alcohol that you can sip it. And at $24 for a liter, this is a huge bargain (compared to Cimarron, Tres Agaves, Olmeca Altos). Unfortunately this tequila is hard to find in SoCal. I have seen the sister brand Tanteo in many grocery stores, so hopefully Espero can find its way into the mainstream market. Curious to try Espero and see how they compare.
