Silver-grey cast - bright and polished with moderate to heavy viscosity. Offering initial aromas of cooked agave, melon and earth, the first sip flows across the tongue with a soft bitterness and deep earthy agave. Yum! Aroma expands to include a whiff of smoke, as the body offers insights into the deepening flavours of agave and earth. Finishes with smoke, pepper and reminders of the earthiness of the fine tequilas of Arandas. This is an excellent blanco at a very modest price. Thanks again, Seth - Espolon Blanco is a keeper.
Tasted out of a double ball glass.
I was very impressed by this blanco as I fel
it covered all the bases as far as a blanco is concerned.
Fruit, vegetal, sweet, earthy, and finishing with a great agave lingering.
For $21.99 it's the best blanco bargain in town.
Espolon Silver ? NOM 1440 ? Tasted 12/31/06. With a clear color, Espolon Silver has intense aromas of earthy and floral scents. Less apparent are moderate spice and fruit with mild smoke aromas. Upon initial taste, the tequila has a heavy mouth feel and has a slight burning sensation on the tip of the tongue. Intense flavors of agave, spice, and earth accents are followed by moderate floral and smoke flavors. The finish consists of hot alcohol intensity and a medium-to-long duration of flavor. I rate this tequila at the ?A/A-? range.
