A big beautiful nose: aromas of melted butter, agave, vanilla, wood, and some fruit for sweetness. Mouthfeel is very big, immediately giving off caramel notes while resting on the tongue. Then the attack - a big attack - of roasted sweet agave and woody spice, which slowly - slowly - brings on a finish of dark spice and smoky heat, moving into a long after-finish of numbing woody sweetness. Chinaco gives you everything you want in a tequila: great big character, bold flavours, and terrific heat and spice. One of the very best repos out there. A complete original.
