Don Julio 1942 is my personal favorite. A rich bite of underlying spices balances with a sweet vanilla finish (almost reminds me of banana). A presence of nuts, pepper and a wonderful nose of citrus and chocolate. You cannot beat the quality of a Don Julio 1942. This is an exceptional tequila. Drinks like scotch.

Better than don julio 70 but still expensive! You can buy something better with a lot less money!

Tastes like Ron Zacapa XO. Vanilla and a hint of Coke a Cola.

Love this tequila. Dried fruit and Vanilla flavors with a very nice finish. Expensive here in the states but Costco in Tijuana has a nice price so I try to purchase there!

Caramel, vanilla and leather on the nose are mirrored on the palate and balanced with baked agave. I also get some nice minerality and floral notes on the finish. Nice that it's not overly sweet.

My go-to after dinner tequila. Vanilla, cinnamon and soft floral notes with a long satisfying finish.

An Amazing Tequila and equal to it's reputation. As to Value it is the best I have ever had to date but not twice as good as some I have had at half the price. One just HAS to try this however.

Compared to others out there at this price point that are not as good (Patron) this is a fair price to charge.

Sweet aroma with hints of agave. Sweet and syrupy flavor, full bodied with prominent agave notes. Smooth and lingering finish.
