Anejos T TimBuck2 February 11, 2007 47168
Definitely the softy of the Chinaco family while still retaining that classic Chinaco essence. Dark and smoky nose, with a touch of alcohol in the background. Very crisp on the tongue. Barrel-heavy. Flavours of light earthy agave, caramel, big wood, and a touch of alcohol. A good long finish, nice smoky pepper on the tongue as well as heated oak down the throat and into the chest. After-finish of sweet earthiness with a touch of alcohol. This is the anejo that keeps on giving. There are some delightfully sharp edges here and this is a very good anejo - quite possibly the Bourbon of all tequilas - but there are other full-bodied more well-rounded anejos I'd reach for first. Looks great on the shelf, though.
