A double-aged, double-wood Añejo Tequila with a rich body and complex palate.
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.
El Espolòn Tequila Añejo is double-aged. This 100% Weber Blue agave Spirit spends ten months in NEW American oak casks with a light char. Then it spends another two months in refill casks from Wild Turkey Bourbon that have a deep char. That sounds like a recipe for flavor to us. And it is. The complex palate dances with notes of wood, dried fruit, chocolate, and butterscotch. They say that this Tequila is for "discerning palates." OK… but we think that this sipper will make discerning palates out of all of us.
Appearance / Color
Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma wafts notes of roasted vegetables and toasted oak over apple chips and dried apricot.
Flavor / Taste / Palate
The body is rich, full, and balanced with a mix of caramels and vanilla over sun-dried raisin, flan, cocoa, succulents, and wood spice.
The finish is long and satisfying.
The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Espolòn Añejo Tequila and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.
We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
