Created in the Highlands of Tequila known as Los Altos, El Espolon Añejo is handcrafted from piñas slow-roasted for 18 to 20 hours at the San Nicolas distillery. Rock music is played during the production process to "inspire" the agave. Aged for 10 months in new American oak and finished maturing in used Wild Turkey Bourbon barrels for two additional months. Try this in an Old Fashioned cocktail for a modern spin on a classic cocktail.

Tasting Notes

"A complex bouquet, slightly vegetal, with cut grass and asparagus, along with butterscotch, vanilla and roasted agave. On the palate, this is a lively tequila with a big burst of black pepper and agave, baking spices, cinnamon and a hint of mango. A lightly floral note, honeysuckle and orchids appears next before ending with honey, bay leaf and a cool menthol note."
