Review #1336 – Espolon Anejo Tequila

The Schtick: This is a limited release from Espolon, although I expect it won’t stay that way forever. Matured for 18 months in barrels, this Anejo promises to be interesting. I am a fan of their other bottlings for being relatively strong quality at relatively low prices, so I hope this holds up. Lets give it a go.

Review #1336 | Tequila Review #48

Distiller: San Nicolas

Bottler: Espolon

Selection: N/A

ABV: 40% ABV

Age: 10 Months


Nose: Sweet agave, sweet cream, honey, lemon and oak.

Taste: Thin, but with a good deal of ethanol. Sweet, lots of characteristic tequila agave. Vanilla. Light oak. Some pepper.

Finish: Short, more agave character, vanilla bean and light ash.

Overall: Nothing crazy here, but also nothing bad. It’s simple and unremarkable but entirely competent.

Thanks for reading!
