Chinaco Negro Tequila Extra Anejo
Extra Anejos
Submitted by Tequila.net     January 07, 2007    
Chinaco Negro Extra Aged Anejo Lot #15 NOM 1127 Tasted 1/12/07. This tequila was probably the hardest to rate of any tequila and had the strongest nose that I have ever encountered in a tequila. The tequila is a yellow golden color and has an intense floral aroma. Once you get past the intensity of the nose, you can smell moderate notes of vanilla, caramel, and fruit. On the tip of the tongue the tequila is mellow and soft but yet has a strong intensity of taste and feels heavy and oily in the mouth. While the tequila has a medium to low bitterness, it is actually fairly sweet. Now onto flavor. The flavor has intense to moderate agave, earth, and floral attributes which are followed by moderate spice and mild vanilla and caramel. The tequilas finish is an extremely long duration of flavor followed by a very numbing alcohol feeling. Overall, I rated this tequila at the A/A+ level and would definitely recommend that everyone try this masterpiece.
