$30/neat at SR. Tequila. Nose: butterscotch and cinnamon with grass and wood. Palate is full and creamy with mint, white pepper, cinnamon, and brown sugar. Finish is mid to long with a taste of chocolate and cinnamon.

Aroma : Butterscotch, oak, vanilla, caramel. Also some dark chocolate and almond. Taste : Medium/full bodied with some oils. Small amounts of agave, but lots of distinctive vanilla and caramel. Oak, cinnamon, toffee, and trace amounts of black pepper and orange flavor. Finish : Long with lasting notes of more vanilla and caramel, as well as oak, toffee and cinnamon. Light cooked agave here as well, but not much. This is an interesting one because it's definitely a sweet tequila with TONS of vanilla and caramel, but it doesn't seem "sickly" sweet. And although this is good, it doesn't have the best value at $120 USD for a bottle.

A bit sweet for me. Very well balanced between agave and oak, but personally I’d like a bit more agave and a bit less sweet !! Sure to be a crowd pleaser, and would most likely convert a whiskey drinker to the beauty of agave.

Good stuff but doesn’t blow my skirt up, a tad too sweet with that vanilla bomb finish. This is a great gateway drug, turns people into true believers

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...

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.

Aromas of butterscotch, pineapple, caramel and agave. Flavors are smooth and enticing. Warm chocolate and agave. Finish is oak, agave, dark chocolate, cinnamon bark and hint of tropical fruit.

The aroma is very nice, with vanilla and black tea notes . 1942 is so easy on the palate, it's a perfect dessert tequila. Finishes with a strong toffee flavor.

Is this Tequila? The nose is awesome. I enjoy smelling this tequila as much as I like tasting it. The nose is full of caramel, vanilla and cooked agave with a hint of oak. The taste is sweet cooked agave, dry candy and caramel. The finish is as smooth as it gets! Salud! Edited - 08/2021 Oh how my tastes have changed in 5 years. I’ll thank the DJ1942 for peaking my interest into sipping tequila but we’ve grown apart.

Must be in the mood for a vanilla bomb tonight so rated a few points higher. 26/06/2018. May just be my palate this evening, but this is a too sweet vanilla bomb to the point of being one note. Good but not great. A newer bottling from the last year or so.

Immediate blast of vanilla and caramel - sweet, sweet, sweet. Vanilla flavor mixes nicely with agave and spice. Soft, spice lingers on the finish. Overall, very nice but a little too much sweetness for my taste.

Beautiful vanilla nose and herbal notes once it opens up. A nice oily mouthfeel and warm finish.

Aroma: Strong vanilla note. It's almost the only thing that I pick up on. There are some hints of caramel and almond Flavor: I always worry that with an XA the flavor will be overpowered by the aging in the barrel. But, it holds up here and maintains the strong vanilla note. Finish: Nice long smooth finish.

10/2021: Tommy got this for me for my birthday. It is an incredibly clean tequila, with complex yet distinct tastes, and not covered up by barrel tastes. Allows the agave to shine through. Smooth as silk finish. However would not pay $150 for it!

Not with the lofty price tag but not bad as a sipper. Vanilla is prevelant, oak seems heavy handed, agave taste is understated. Solid overall but not worth the premium price.

Agave, vanilla, light oak, slight cinnamon on the nose. Balanced sweetness with vanilla, cinnamon and oak. Fucking smooth with slight alcoholic burn.

Tastes like a factory making warm caramel finishing warm like it is hot off the press.

Smooth with hints of light oak and vanilla. Finish is mild. My wife’s favorite tequila but just middle of the road for me. With prices rising to nearly $200 in Kentucky (depends on store) I think it’s not a great value and many other offerings beat it. But hey, marketing and the fact that most of the ladies on the “housewives” shows drink it on camera it certainly sells well
