Nice mellow flavor with hints of vanilla and agave, luxuriously smooth finish. Very nice sipping juice, must try again soon!

sweet oak barrel front followed by deep caramel smooth sweetnees, light smoke and pepper finish. love the finish....almost minty and refreshing with enough oak sweetness to remind you of its fine aging roots.

This was a treat and my benchmark tequila . Smooth with a slight vanilla flavor. Finishes like honey dew vine water :) A little too expensive to be my everyday tequila.....plus I would drink too much.

Very smooth . An excellent tequila. All I know is I want it again. But not likely with the prices that I'd have to pay in the States .

Don Julio 1942 is my personal favorite. A fantastic nose of pinapple and bananas balanced with caramel, oak and citrus. A rich bite of underlying spices balances with a sweet vanilla finish (almost reminds me of banana). A presence of nuts, pepper and cooked agave. 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!

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.
