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.

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.

Tequila Chinaco Reposado NOM 1127 tasted 10/2/08 from a Riedel glass. I ordered this from Shopper's Vineyard and paid 44.00/750ml. A clear light pale yellow color with long quick legs and lots of pearls. Loads of earthy agave, a fruity sweetness, and mild alcohol on the nose. A med to thin mouthfeel. First taste is simple and appears mild but then develops into a one-two heated agave punch turning hotter as it lingers. The aftertaste is intense but in a satisfying way. On the stronger side, much more so at the end than upon entry. Dominant agave and heat throughout the tasting finish. Sharp and dry with some spice and wood tones and not much else. A strong pure agave reposado sure to please thoses who like their tequila on the bold side. Presentation is on the simple side with nice smooth lines, cork stopper, and silk screened labeling.
