Sparkle Donkey Tequila Review – Silver & Reposado

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.

Brandy Snifters from this episode:

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.

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 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.”


Juan Dominguez says:

what do you guys think of Centenario Tequila its actually one of my favorites and have you had a chance to try the hibiscus infuse centenario tequila??

aR0ttenBANANA96 says:

Why is it so expensive?

Jones N Mann says:

I can’t wait until mines gets here!

Bmackins94 says:

Did Doug get a hair cut

Gegit05 says:

Definitely an interesting name for tequila. A pine quality? In a tequila? That’d be a new one for me. I guess I’ll have to look for a little sample bottle.

4:10. The other thing to consider is the water used in the distilling process. With Scotch, most distilleries are set along the River Spey, which is filtered through heather and peat farther upstream, and flows over granite, creating ideal water conditions for distillation. I imagine water quality greatly impacts the quality of any spirit.

toby_belize says:

would it be “El Burro Brilloso”?

Wesley Kennedy says:

Any updates about where to find this online? I couldn’t find it at specsonline.

Alex Drum says:

Would really love a updated review. better quality and a dash of your real over the top energy would be largely appreciated.

Lexicron says:

Love the resposado. Unbelievable. But the name Sparkle Donkey reeks of NW gringo.

consumerofworlds1975 says:

where are you guys located?

MrDbcooper456 says:

there are rumors that they add artificial flavors or natural flavors to enhance the flavor of the blanco and repasado
have you heard if this is true ??

Scottdogg 529 says:

So I’m not really a tequila fan (I enjoy vodka and gin mostly) but I am really interested in this silver donkey because of your raving review.. Where would I be able to get my hands on some? I checked drinkupny and they don’t have it and being that I live in Oregon (a controlled state) I can look up what is available in the liquor stores and they don’t have it. Also being that I am not an avid tequila drinker is there a better known brand that you would recommend for someone to get started on?

Crimelord6767 says:

Love the name of this! Sparkle donkey!

MrStiggy91 says:

I want this tequila just cause it’s called Sparkle Donkey, it puts a smile on my face lol.

By the way, just fyi, Tres Generaciones is pronounced Hen-air-os-see-own-ace 🙂

Mvp Alexis says:

”this is actually…” was pronounced like 1000 times

Gegit05 says:

I think it impacts everything. I just mentioned it because Doug was commenting on conditions affecting the agave plant that may impart a specific flavour, but he didn’t touch on water, which I think is worth some consideration.

Joshua says:

for sure off topic, what do you think of ciroc vodka?

toby_belize says:

im currently living in mexico for the past year and half, from experience mezcal is like 5x stronger than tequila…

TheTravisthefairy says:

I’d pick this up but unfortunately I already have a almost full bottle of Jose Cuervo tradicional that’s bigger than most any bottle I have…. So Its going to be awhile before I get my hands on this. ;/

Kendrick says:

I really like it when there’s a co-host on the show, makes it more enjoyable to watch. 🙂

Kim Brusevold says:

Where do you stream at, and how can we know when you do?

Matt James says:

Great review! I tried this based off of yours and other reviews. OUTSTANDING tequila… By far my favorite silver, and I don’t usually care too much for silvers. Here in WA it is pretty easy to find. I got the repo for $34 and silver for $31 + the 30.5% liquor and sales tax. OUCH! Cheers

consumerofworlds1975 says:

awesome I live here as well big read liquor store for the win.

JustOneAsbesto says:

I’ll take that as a ‘yes’.

Doug Petersen says:

And by “sparkle,” do you mean “wax?” And by “donkey,” do you mean “ass?” So, did you just ask me if I wax my ass?

MrStiggy91 says:

Haha, yeah in Spanish whenever you have a “g” before an “e” or an “i” it has the same pronunciation as the “j” sound which in English sounds like the pronunciation of “h.” Such as in “Don Julio.”

ValtorixAndSocion says:

god it sucks living in Australia we cant get this kinda good shit here 🙁 and even if we do its gunna cost like 4x as much

Bmackins94 says:

i know his beard didnt look as thick

Boondock Sainte says:

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. But as time passed and word of his strange, lustrous aura and invigorating, ambrosial drink spread, the Sparkle Donkey became a powerful symbol of hope — an iconic and inscrutable totem that resonates to this very day.

vermylenp says:

do a tequila reposado and anejo episode you did the blanco episode and never did reposado and anejo

tubefed420 says:

sparkle donky… lmao. You just got donkey punched.

mochronik says:

it totally does matter, next time stand in the right spot. lol

MetooFredrik says:

Ever tried Sauza? What do you think of it?

Mario Jimenez says:

Derrick & Dough u guys are awesome

Derrick flatten out ur hair
Dough nice hair cut dude
Nice work keep it up guys 🙂

ValtorixAndSocion says:

if only it were that simple plus me moving there means i would have to wait another year before i can drink alcohol

JustOneAsbesto says:

Does Doug “sparkle” his “donkey”?

MrStiggy91 says:

Lol, it took 7 years (5th – 11th) just to get stuff like that stuck in my head, I can only say/understand a few phrases. It’s especially sad ’cause I’m a Hispanic in south Texas.

Marco Hernandez says:

“Brillo Burro” would be the correct translation, though it doesn’t make any sense at all, trust me, I’m Mexican.

conchudo2010 says:

Nice review you made me want to try this but Man I really want to try this why can’t I get it texas sucks

Gegit05 says:

8:40. So perhaps a Cotton Candy Margarita? With a cotton candy liqueur or a cotton candy vodka in place of triple sec? Lemon juice instead of lime juice? Sounds like it might be something right up your alley, Derrick. Get mixing.

Also, I’m not big on the camera angle change, but I assume it was a one-time deal.

mugglenerd1 says:

Is tequila best served chilled?

Markus Harris says:

People be crazy. Sparkle Donkey is nasty
