No balance to be found, weak on the nose and a weak agave build up followed up by an oddly chemical finish. I won’t revisit this.

Lot 1041. While it’s a huge improvement over the Preiss Imports version, it’s too sweet, unnaturally sweet. Will stick to my regular tequilas.

Something strange about the flavor that I can’t place, decent finish though.

Initial nose had an off note (rubber?) and alcohol, but transitioned to black pepper, baking spices and mineral notes. Palate weighs in with heavy pepper, a suggestion of sweet agave, but finishes with overbearing bitterness.

This was awful. Smelt like rubber gloves, rubbing alcohol. Tasted of heavy clay. Extremely faint sign of agave.

A letter L bottle from 2006. This blanco from the brands better days (?) has some creamy agave in the mouth and a finish that has some lingering earth notes.

Sady, the last few times I've tried this, it smelled and tasted like soap. Potentially a defect? I will try again in a few months, hopefully I'll get a new batch.

Found a bottle at great price. Aroma: herbal, sea salt, dill weed, grass, cooked agave, peppercorn, olive, white pepper, citrus. Palate; caramel, tropical fruit, aloe, and cooked agave with taste of little use of pepper and dried chilles. Finish is very ripe and full of agave and minerals. Medium body and long lasting agave caramel and white pepper. Short legs on glass and semi oily in mouth.

I was slightly disappointed by this. Alcohol on the nose followed by movie theater popcorn. Watery and shallow on the palate. A bit bland. It had a strong (but very short) metallic, bitter finish. It was smooth so it would be a great gateway tequila. I have been spoiled by some amazing high-proof blancos so this is probably why i rated it a bit low. I like in-your-face blancos and this was a bit submissive. But still a very good tequila.

I haven’t taste much from the state of Tamulipas but it is very different to Jalisco, super vegetal and herbaceous. Still great but different agave flavours!!!

This rating is for the 2017 Tamaulipas agave lot L-1038 blanco. Nice aroma, hot peppery and lots of fresh cooked agave towards the end.

It's been a few years since I last tasted Chinaco, and I'm not sure if anything has changed since then. What stood out for me about the Chinaco that set it apart from the tequilas I had tasted prior was the heavy presence of white pepper and spice in both the aroma and the flavor. I enjoyed it, and found it unique. I could see how this would be off-putting for someone who doesn't enjoy this particular profile. It impressed me enough that I picked up a second bottle of blanco when the opportunity presented itself. One of the only tequilas I have ever found not from the typical regions in Jalisco. If you're looking for something a little different, it's worth a try.

I note that my rating is higher than others. It had been a long time since I last had Chinaco blanco. It is in a more traditional bottle, not the flattened bottle illustrated-- the one I remember. There are others I like better, but it's good and it's reasonably priced.

Very nice Blanco, basic aroma followed by a sweet initial flavor of vanilla, cloves and fruit. Pretty nice finish as well but not as smooth as some others.

SPOILER ALERT This review is of a 1994 prenom blanco from vintage bottle. Totally retro. Makes me feel jaded that my dad collect Armengac and only had a lousy Sauza from the 70s in his collection OK, back to the point. This blanco has a smoky profile that leans to mezcal but is truly tequila in its agave nature. This could be Rocinante's favorite blanco. This tequila is her Yoji Yamamoto. Quixote might prefer something more Ted Baker.

Old bottle very nice. Like it better than the new. Aroma is agave, alcohol, slight floral and wood. Taste is pepper front with a little floral. Finish is pepper long lasting but not harsh. Honestly good sipper for the experienced but most will like it in a mixer like most blanco's. The old bottle is being sold at a great price and more than worth it.

Smooth, with little burn. Light agave, pleasant vegetal, floral and unf some harsh alcohol on the finish.
