Sparkle Donkey Tequila Review – Silver and Reposado

Tasting Notes: The Sparkle Donkey Silver has some great tasting notes with a crisp clean agave bite with a nice smooth mouth-feel, flavorful grassy “green” notes / pine. The finish has some subtle citrus action but nothing crazy.
Tasting Notes: The Sparkle Donkey Reposado brings huge sweet aroma like caramel candy and oak. The tasting notes bring warm oak, caramelized sugars, agave and a pink cotton candy finish. You’ll probably find it hard to lose the cotton candy flavor once you’ve found it.

Sparkle Donkey Tequila Review, both silver and reposado in a single video! This is El Burro Esparkalo, a legend in the form of a tequila spirit. Both the silver and reposado Sparkle Donkey tequila offerings bring unique flavor that puts quality above all else, including (oddly), price. Both products will cost you less than USD $26 with the Reposado only being a dollor or two more costly.

Amazingly, I’m inclined to suggest Sparkle Donkey Silver over the Reposado for a bit more of a raw and powerful tequila spirit. The Reposado brings a bit more mature smoothness with a higher caramel/cotton candy like flavor which may distract some tasters from getting beyond the sweet. However, Reposado brings some great natural fullness that is tough to beat at the $26 dollar price tag. The best solution would to buy both and still spend less than a single bottle of Patron.

Sparkle Donkey Silver blows away the flavor profile of the much more expensive Patron product.

* Sparkle Donkey Silver: $22.95-$24.95
* Sparkle Donkey Reposado: $23.95-$25.95

“The story of the Sparkle Donkey — or El Burro Esparkalo as he is better known — began as little more than a local anecdote about a humble-yet-noble creature that, in dire times, delivered liquid salvation to many who were in need.”

    I’m going to be traveling in the US next week, and really want to bring a bottle back to Canada with me. I’m struggling to find either of the SD tequilas online, much less a liquor store that carries it local to where I’m traveling. Where can I find it?! I’m more than happy to have it shipped to my hotel.
