This was my first exposure to this new wave of "clear anejos".... I thought it was a novelty at the time. I still think so. Seems like everybody jumped on this trend and suddenly there all sorts of clear anejos on the market. I don't see the point of filtering the colour out of an anejo.... unless this is simply a blanco that has had the flavor profile modified with additives..... Taste is "okay"....Aroma is "okay" If you want to drink an anejo, drink an anejo that hasn't been altered artificially. Don't like the colour of a proper anejo? Close your eyes....

70 is a favorite of mine when I want just a slightly lighter flavor then a colored anejo. Easy to drink and savor.

Great cristalino, appreciate such a good aftertaste. I would never try to mix it or drink it with lime/salt. it needs to be straight, perhaps some cheese and quince paste. Perfect flavour with balanced nose, wonderful experience, but I think overpriced since is a Don Julio. other cristalinos out there are bit more reasonable priced and are as good. Nice bottle, makes a great gift.

The nose was a strong agave that I crave, but first taste was hotter than I expected.. overall good and even better on the rocks, but not my favorite Don Julio...

5 years ago this was my favorite tequila. That was early on in my tequila journey. Boy has my pallet changed! Tonight was the first time I've tried it in over a year, and it's not quite how I remember it. I still really enjoy this unique spirit, but far from my favorite. I think tiramisu when I'm drinking this! It has a sweetness that I like, but not overbearing. (I won't use the word "cloying", because for some reason I HATE when people use that word!) If you're in the mood for a dessert tequila, then this is worth a try.

Amazing and smooth reposado. Finish has a little bit of complexity but taste and mid pallet are fairly flat with no burn. Easy introductory tequila that anyone can enjoy.

Truly a unique tequila. All the Añejo taste but exquisitely smooth. Body and palate are very unique. Worth trying for anyone who appreciates aged tequila or to convert a Blanco drinker

Vanilla, butterscotch, etc - fairly typical of the clear anejos. Wasn't super impressed - the bottle had a somewhat chemical odor upon opening but it seemed to go away after awhile. Less sweet maybe than the others (eg. Herradura Ultra, Maestro Dobel) but nothing much to distinguish it. It was a little pricier than the others as well.

Filtering removed some agave notes and aroma, however the taste still retains caramels and tastes you would expect from an aged tequila. the finish is buttery smooth. Definitely worth another bottle.

Es un golpe de vainilla, pero los demás sabores se ocultan. POR QUE QUITARLE EL COLOR? Mera mercadotecnia. Es quitarle una señal de madurez. Es como dejar que una mujer madure y luego le cortas el busto. Además el color es lo menos importante en un espirituoso.

A very good tequila. Very smooth. However too smooth. It reminded me way too much of Patron. There is no real complexity of a true a tequila here, as in baking spices, vanilla, caramel, or oak. The only tone that I could really identify on the nose and palate was citrus and fruit. Just an overload of various tropical essences to the point where it almost reminded me of some sort of flavored rum. Lemon lime pineapple and mango were present. This to me is a good introductory tequila to someone who doesn't drink this kind of beverage, however for the experienced or seasoned veteran tequila drinker I would steer away from this. Maybe as a novelty at a bar however I would not invest my money I would rather drink the other Don Julio beverages.

This is great for those friends who won't try a reposado, or anejo because they only drink clear booze. I've had many people switch from patron after this one

For Enrique de Colsa, master distiller of Don Julio tequila in Jalisco, Mexico, charcoal filtration became a seven-year science experiment that produced Don Julio 70 Crystal Anejo, a nod to the brand's 70th anniversary and homage to its founder, Don Julio
