Clayton Szczech of Experience Tequila is a frequent house guest of ours in Mexico City. On one recent visit we decided to put him to work – blind tasting three different expressions of Espolon reposado. (The old version in the original tall bottle; the new version commonly found in the USA; and a version that’s only found in Mexico that’s aged in bourbon barrels.)
Within the last few years, this well-known tequila brand has gone through some changes. The brand was purchased by Campari/Skyy, the bottle design was changed, and the tequila inside is slightly different.
So which is better? Watch the video to find out!
But I am pleased to say that after the blind taste test, Clayton and I agreed.
