Very light, very smooth. Sweet agave flavor, although a bit too light for my taste. I am going to try their reposado as I thought this tasted really good but I prefer the smoky addition that they againg gives it.
I recommend this for those who may be just starting their tequila journey as it a really good, smooth spirit.
Chinaco Blanco NOM 1127 Tasted on 5/7/07 at 6:30pm. I tried this tequila at Zocalo?s free tasting and tasted it out of a shot glass. The tequila is clear in color and is aged less than 1 month. Chinaco Blanco aromas consist of intense earth, spice, and floral aspects followed by moderate smoke. On the lighter side, this Blanco has mild aromas of fruit. On the tip of tongue, this tequila is mellow and has a medium mouth feel. While the tequila has heavy agave flavor, it is sweet and has only a hint of bitterness. The flavor of this tequila contains intense flavors of earth, agave, and floral followed by moderate wood and fruit aspects. Deeper flavors of Chinaco Blanco consist of mild smoke and spice. Upon finishing this tequila, there is a medium-to-long duration of flavor and numbing alcohol intensity. I have rated this tequila at 92 out of 100 points.
Colour is silvery, not completely clear. First sniff is magnificent agave - first sip is light, sweet and mild. Depth of agave soon presents itself with elegant florals developing in the nose. Sweetness flows through to a clean and somewhat short finish with a pleasing tingle. Chinaco Blanco may well be the most perfectly balanced blanco I have ever tried.
Tasted out of a snifter on 01/14/09. This is just a great blanco from a great line. An excellent sipper that I highly recommend to anyone. Like I've stated before, this line is very consistent. I personally would never mix this one. It's to be savored, and it's in my top 4.
Aroma: A sweet and pleasant nose of floral (violet and orange blossom) and spice (clove), with hints of tropical fruit.
Initial Taste: A semi oily mouth feel. A sweet entry with no bitterness. Initial taste of fruit.
Body: A nice heavy agave body (in a good way), with notes of tropical fruit.
Finish: A semi heated finish of short duration, with a lingering of agave and fruit.
A good, solid blanco from a great line of tequilas.
Aroma: A nice balance of a lot of things. Agave presence is strong. Then there is a nice mix of earth, spice and citrus fruits.
Initial taste: Again a good balance of what I expect out of a blanco. Not overly sweet, but the agave flavor is still there nicely.
Body: A bit more citrus comes through, but still a nice balance of agave and earth & spice.
Finish: Pleasant finish. The citrus notes are there and there's a pleasant burn. It does not last as long as I'd probably like it to.
Purchased for $30 online. Well worth that price. I've only sipped it, but I feel like it would be a really good mixing tequila as well. At $30, I'll probably always have a bottle of this around.
