Chinaco Reposado Tequila 750ML
Chinaco Reposado Tequila 750ML
Chinaco Reposado Tequila is a narrative of exquisite aging and global influences. Rested for 11 months, not in the typical bourbon-soaked barrels but in distinguished white oak casks from France and England, some with a history of cradling Scotch, it offers a traditional and refreshingly unique palate.
The legacy of Chinaco as one of the pioneering 100% agave tequilas introduced to the U.S. is deeply rooted in the soils of Tamaulipas. With the Gulf of Mexico gracing its borders, this tequila boasts a character distinctively apart from the Jalisco varieties, making it a true testament to its origin.
- An initial waft is reminiscent of pure agave, but this bold aroma is tenderly balanced by the sweet vanilla traces, a tribute to its time spent in European oak.
- On the palate, the reposado dazzles with a medley of spice, a flicker of fire, and undertones of burnt sugar. However, the raw, earthy, and slightly piquant essence of agave remains the protagonist of this sensory experience.
- Concluding with a peppery flourish that lingers and entices, this reposado effortlessly balances sweetness and complexity, making every sip a journey of discovery.
Chinaco Reposado is more than just a drink; it explores the heart of Tamaulipas, embodying its unique terroir and international influences in every drop.

What is the difference between Tequila & Mezcal?
Tequila is a type of mezcal, much like how scotch and bourbon are types of whiskey.
Tequila and mezcal are both types of agave-based spirits that are popular in Mexico, but there are some key differences between the two. Tequila is made exclusively from the blue agave plant, which is primarily grown in the area surrounding the city of Tequila, about 40 miles northwest of Guadalajara. Mezcal, on the other hand, can be made from any type of agave plant, and is often made using traditional, labor-intensive methods.
One of the most noticeable differences between tequila and mezcal is their flavor. Tequila is typically smooth and subtle, with hints of fruit and spices, while mezcal has a more complex, smoky flavor that comes from the roasting of the agave hearts before they are fermented and distilled.
Another difference between the two spirits is their production process. Tequila is typically made using modern industrial methods, while mezcal is often produced using traditional techniques that have been passed down for generations. This can give mezcal a more authentic, artisanal character.
In general, tequila is considered to be a more refined and sophisticated spirit, while mezcal is often viewed as a more rustic and traditional drink. Both are popular in Mexico and are enjoyed around the world, so the best way to decide which one you like is to try them both and see which one suits your tastes.
