Wonderful value and taste in a delightful Tequila aged in new oak for a pure experience.

Destiladora San Nicolas is located in Los Altos — the Highlands of Jalisco Mexico. The deep red, volcanic soil and high altitude has long been considered the best climate for producing great Blue agave. They were founded in 1996, growing quickly by producing their own San Nicolas brand of Tequilas. In 2008 they were purchased by the Campari Group. Now, nearly all production goes into Cabo Wabo and their own El Espolòn line of Tequilas.

It is VERY common for Tequila makers to age their Spirits in used casks. It is so common that most fans just assume that the aging occurred in ex-Bourbon casks — by far the most popular choice. El Espolòn Tequila Reposado is 100% Weber Blue agave Spirit rested in lightly charred NEW American oak casks for 3-5 months. All you taste is the pure agave Spirit. It’s great and a great value. And that’s just us saying so. They have a slew of awards to back it all up.

Need a salt shaker and lime? Nah. The Mexicans take their Tequila neat and prefer to leave the lime and salt for their margaritas. Wouldn’t be a bad idea to follow suit.
If the Tequila bottle label does not state that it’s manufactured from 100% Blue Agave, then, by default, that Tequila is a Mixto (manufactured from 51% Blue Agave).
The strongest Tequila available for sale clocks in at 75% ABV (150 proof). This shouldn’t come as a surprise, but drinking huge amounts of this spirit is likely te-quil-a.
Tequila labeled Gold (Oro) is your indicator (i.e., red flag) that you’re dealing with a mixto Tequila - unaged silver Tequila that has been colored and flavored with caramel to give the appearance of aged Tequila.
Tequila goes bad with time. Once you open a bottle of Tequila, you better be in the mood to drink it. Generally, you have one to two months before oxidization and evaporation diminish the Tequila quality and destroy the Agave flavor profile.
Tequila is made from one type of agave, Blue agave. Each of these plants takes at least 6 years, more likely a year or two longer to mature.
