Excellent tequila. Great aroma, easy drinking flavor and smooth finish. I would drink this all the time if I could get it on sale. It is a bit expensive so I think there may be better ones for the same price point.

Probably my favorite tequila experience (and make no mistake, any time you drink this the occasion becomes an experience). You'll be hard pressed to find a better anejo. It goes well with just about any food. Too bad it's priced such that it's only for special occasions.

I once taste in Acapulco a Margarita Cocktail made with 1942. I became so surprised about the flavour...it was just amazing. An experience I'll never forget.Now back at home I revive the delicous taste once a week. It tastes so different you can't imagine.

Nose: Loads of creamy vanilla. Fruit, barrel spice and cream soda. Oily in the mouth. Balanced fruit, spices and pepper. A bit of maple towards the end. First rate tequila. Finish teases you to drink more...

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.

I appreciate the presentation, packaging, bottle, etc. - elegant and "up-town" no question about that. I've never paid more $$$ for any tequila (or any other liquor) than what I paid for this a couple of days back. I'd not have ever invested if I weren't familiar with this tequila. I've enjoyed 1942 several times in the past due to the generosity of friends. It losses a lot of points from me due to the high price point. I have many compliments and positives on this tequila with no complaints. The aroma is much sweeter than what I look for, but that sweetness is not so apparent in the taste. I like it a lot - if the price were substantially less to me - I'd be able to afford enough of it to NEVER run out, nor even run low!!!

Don Julio 1942 Tequila: Old vs. New – Which is better?

Don’t you just love change? Let’s face it, most of us don’t, which is why it can be downright scary when theres a change to your favorite tequila. When the bottle changes you can’t help but worry if the tequila has changed as well. One such case is the me
