I grabbed this stuff off the shelf for an ibotta promotion. Probably would have never bought it otherwise. I did a little research and decided to go with it.
I have never quite figured out tequila. A sip always kind gave me a slight queasy feeling. I never understood the dislike of gin by those that are against it. But looking at tequila I can understand the perspective.
All that was until I tried Epsolon recently. I knew an acquaintance that liked tequila so I shared the bottle of Epsolon with them.
They asked me how I like my drink, confirming I didn't want a mixer I was on the rocks. The first sip was easy, flavorful, and pleasing. The "tequila" taste it is known for came through balanced and floated across my palate.
I was not overwhelmed, not shocked, but it was like I had discovered something new. I had finally figured out tequila. This was decent stuff at a decent price.
I noticed on the counter when my first beverage was poured a familiar FAO from FAOs past. I said hey, "that is the the perfect mixer."
Anyways, not a connoisseur of tequila, but maybe one now, I recommend trying Epsolon if you haven't. I was just glad my team wasn't playing, as Ep. Teq. helped smooth things over a little bit.
