Chinaco Reposado Tequila

Chinaco Reposado is unique because it is barrel-aged for at 8 months. While other Reposados are aged for less time in large vats.

The result is a mellow richness with a gentle woody character. Chinaco Reposado is a tequila that mixes beautifully, but stands proudly on its own.

This is overal a great tequila, my only complaint would be consistency sometime not the best, but the great thing about it is that it taste wonderful. It is a smooth very silky tequila, notes are elegant with sweetness and oak that are very well balanced. Body is medium to full and color will be straw with a bit of gold. The finish is nice and spicy with fruit sweetness and caramel with a bit of smoke.

To me, the Chinaco line represents everything about Tequila that I enjoy. The reposado is probably my favorite.

Aroma - Agave, vanilla and oak.
Initial Taste - Sweet with a hint of heat and wood.
Body - The balance among all of the flavors is great. Agave and caramel for sweetness...wood and a pleasant heat follows.
Finish - Wonderful smoothness and burn at the end with all of the other flavors.

Just a great tequila. It's got a nice price point and a cool bottle and you have yourself the total package of what a tequila should be.

This is what a Reposado should taste like. I cannot get enough of it, luckily they sell it in my state run liquor store. Complex but balanced, it is definitely worth picking up a bottle or two.

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.

Tasted out of a snifter on 12/12/08. This reposado is simply amazing. To me, its the quintessential reposado. Chinaco is an extremely consistent line and this reposado could quite possibly be my favorite reposado. A pure sipper, not to be mixed, in my opinion! Chinaco is just an excellent line, and it's in my top 5 favorite lines. The thing I like about Chinaco is that no matter which product of theirs I choose to sip, I'm always very satisfied.

Aroma: A soft nose of caramel, fruit and oak.
Initial Taste: A semi oily mouth feel, a semi heated (in a good way) entry, its sweet with no bitterness. First taste is caramel.
Body: An excellent body with lots of character consisting of agave, caramel, wood, fruits and spices. So complex, yet so perfect!
Finish: A heated finish of short duration with an agave and wood lingering.
