It’s no secret that we’re fans of Espolon Blanco Tequila, as it’s one of the best value buys in the 100% agave tequila market. But how fares the Reposado?
Espolon Reposado Tequila is crafted at the San Nicolas Distillery in the Highlands region of Jalisco, Mexico. After distillation, it’s aged six months in American oak barrels. The result is a golden-hued spirit that’s full of roasted agave, spice and caramel on the nose. Drink up to taste flavors ranging from brown sugar and vanilla to tropical fruits. It’s less agave-forward than the blanco, and those six months in barrel give the Reposado some dry oak notes on the finish.
Espolon Blanco and Reposado were reintroduced to the United States in 2010 after a three year market hiatus. Originally, the lineup also included an Anejo, but for now the brand is only producing the Blanco and Reposado.
