Tasted on 11/18/08 out of a snifter. I'm a blanco lover all the way. It will always be my first choice. But I am always pleased when I find an anejo I love almost as much as blancos, and this one is pretty darn good!! Smooth, complex, tasty. Everything that an anejo should be.! The taste (IMHO) was very similar to El Tesoro Anejo (my current anejo favorite). I'm a huge fan of anejos that don't come across as too syrupy. Also, big plus for the nice cork stopper! Aroma: Vanilla, floral, fruit, and smoke Initial Taste: A semi oily mouth feel. It was sweet upon entry with no bitterness. First taste was fruit. Body: A very complex body! Intense agave, followed by caramel, floral, spices, and smoke. Finish: A long heated finish with a lingering taste sensation of spices and smoke.

I found a bottle of the old label Chinaco at a liquor store in Florida a close out bin. I got a 750ml for $9. This was great stuff. I really enjoyed it but I know it's like $34 a bottle in the new bottle. Don't know if I can afford that everyday.

This tequila was very woody and not much agave came through the wood but it was very sweet, flavorful and smooth.

Chinaco Anejo NOM 1127 Tasted on 4/26/07 at 4:22pm. I purchased 1.5 ounces of this tequila at Zocalo in Sacramento, CA for $12 and tasted it out of a snifter. The tequila is golden in color and is aged for 3 years. Chinaco Anejo aromas consist of intense vanilla, earth, and floral aspects followed by moderate fruit. On the lighter side, this Anejo has mild aromas of caramel with hints of spice and smoke. On the tip of tongue, this tequila is mellow and has a thick and syrupy mouth feel. While the tequila has moderate-to-heavy agave flavor, it is sweet and has only a hint of bitterness. The flavor of this tequila contains intense flavors of earth followed by moderate floral and vanilla aspects. Deeper flavors of Chinaco Anejo consist of mild fruit, caramel, and smoke. Upon finishing this tequila, there is a long-to-very long duration of flavor and numbing alcohol intensity. I have rated this tequila at 95 out of 100 points.

Nice and thick with a rich amber color. Smooth, with strong vanilla undertones.

Chinaco anejo is another one of my firsts, great quality and price, smooth and full of deep wood and vanilla, and a sweetened floral aftertaste
