El Espolón Tequila

Posted on: April 13th, 2015 by Roxbury Wine & Spirits

Always on a quest to bring you great products at affordable prices, we introduce El Espolòn tequila. Paying tribute to the legendary “pelea de gallos” (fighting cocks) of Spanish American tradition, Espolòn takes its name from the “spur” found on the back of the rooster’s leg. This post will also refresh us all on the different variants of tequila.

BLANCO: A delicate, sweet agave with floral, tropical fruit and lemon zest aromas and a hint of pepper. It has a soft mouthfeel and a light- to medium-bodied palate with bright agave flavor, notes of pepper, vanilla bean, grilled pineapple and spice.

REPOSADO: Aged six months in American oak barrels. Rich and golden-hued, it has a spicy aroma with a hint of caramel fudge. Its bold, round palate is medium- to full-bodied and has a rich roasted agave taste with sweet tropical fruit, vanilla and brown spices and a long spicy finish.

AÑEJO: Blue agave, aged over a year in American oak barrels. Beautifully golden in color, it offers a delicate woody aroma with hints of chocolate and butter candy.
