Chinaco Tequila Reposado
Reposados

Wow. This one's a keeper. I'll just jump straight into it.


Aroma: Very mild, yet filled with rich scents of oak and vanilla. Pleasant, but not striking.
Initial taste: Smooth, warm, and soft with hints of caramel and sweet agave. Even when it first hits your lips you're given a hint of what's to come.
Body: Caramel and agave continue, but the oak comes roaring in. A little smoky, but quite refreshing. Beautifully balanced in all aspects.
Finish: This is the best part; the finish is long and the oak just lingers over a subtle agave fade.

Really, really good. This is my favorite reposado. This is one of those tequilas that will truly stand out on your palette after trying a dozen others. Great character, complexity, and flavor.

You would be doing yourself a disservice if you don't find this and try it for yourself.
