Fielding & Jones tear drop, RK 8370. Beautiful golden color. Lots of fresh agave on the nose and some floral notes, followed by hints of caramel. Good viscosity, leaving tears on the Riedel. Butterscotch and light oak notes, cleanly transitions to agave before finishing with light pepper kick. Easy heat, but a medium to long finish with complexity that hangs onto the top of your mouth. Really enjoyable old school bottle.

Taste this neat at Señor Tequila bar. Great flavor include oak, vanilla and agave with taste of caramel and little use of pepper. Finish is very oily and full of agave and vanilla with hints of oak. $10/

F&J Import tear drop bottle. RK5537. Cooked agave, oak, spice, bell pepper, earth, fruit, caramel, touch of vanilla. A bit hot on the finish but nothing outrageous. Decent bottle for sure.

Butterscotch, a little heat, a touch amargo. I expected more... But then again, the last time I tasted the repo it had an off petroleum taste. So I will give it another try.

Older bottle of reposado, says a Preiss Import but from Ramona CA rather than the current San Diego CA. This reposado adds caramel and oak to the blanco profile along with a lingering tip of the tongue numbing finish. Denton imports A bottle from 1996. Awesome. 30/06/2018

Chinaco is a different tequila experience, regardless of expression, year, bottling, etc. and that’s a great thing . It had a very interesting and important story . Because it’s “outside” the normal tequila region, all the differences affect its unique, one of a kind flavors. Differences in agaves, soil, water, minerals, yeasts, cooking, fermenting, distillation, you name it. It ALL matters and affects the taste to the discerning drinker. Chinaco was one of the first ultra premium brands for a reason . Taste and see. Salud !

The nose is quite typical of any reposado: oak, vanilla, agave and black pepper further in the background. There is some fruitiness here with a touch of pineapple and pear that nicely rounds out the smells and keeps it somewhat interesting. The dominant flavor in the tongue is a surprising earthiness mixed with a nice pineapple taste. That's surprising given that it smells more fruity than earthy, so imagine my surprise when I found bits of mint towards the mid and back palate. There's also the taste of the oak, agave and vanilla but they are more background decorations than the main set, though they do become more prominent near the finish. Speaking of the finish it's pleasantly spicy with the oak and pepper acting nicely in sync with what can only be described as a pleasant alcohol burn. It lasts for almost a minute with the oak dominating the final moments. I would say it's a good reposado & worth seeking out as the only Tequila made in Taumalipas. It's not mind blowing but it is pleasant to drink.

This was the reposado tequila exceptional. Given to me as a gift. Found it very good, smooth and easy to drink. Would definitely buy when I see it.

Tequila with agave cooked flavors and aroma, orange peel and butter flavor, is good. Citrus flavor present and and a little salty, not bad.

Chinaco for Dinner

Last week I attended a dinner at Tres Agaves in San Francisco with Gabriel and Guillermo Gonzalez of Chinaco Tequila. Tres Agaves is hosting monthly distillers' dinners with a different tequila brand each time.
