Espolon Tequila – The Tale of 3 Different Reposados

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.

  1. Confused about what Clayton’s blind-tasting finding were?

    Can I “order” some of that bourbon-aged stuff from you?


  2. what about the tall bottle with metal labels – same juice as the one in the middle?


  3. Just picked up a bottle of the bourbon aged in DF. Can’t wait to get it home and have a taste!
