Review: Espolon Anejo Tequila

Posted by Arctic Wolf on May 9, 2022

Espolon is a tequila brand created by Master Distiller Cirilo Oropeza made in a small batch process from ‘hand-selected’ 100% Blue Weber agave, grown in the rich red clay and cool climate of the Jalisco, Mexico. At that facility piñas of the hand selected agave are cooked for 18 to 20 hours prior to their fermentation. They apparently use a slower distillation technique than is in use at most other facilities, and when the spirit is finished, their Espolon Blanco tequila is rested for at least 11 months in ex-Wild Turkey Bourbon Barrels, and then bottled at 40 % alcohol by volume.

Here is a link to my full review:

Review: Espolon Anejo Tequila

“… Peppery agave spice combined with slightly aggressive agave fruit, fine oak spices, citrus zest, light smells of butterscotch and vanilla with just a hint of almond. As the glass breathes I notice light baking spices (cinnamon and ginger) and a very light scattering of tea leaves …”

Please Enjoy my review of Espolon Anejo Tequila, and if you are interested I have also provided links to my previous reviews of the other tequilas in the Espolon line-up below.
