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!

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.

Smells like a sugar cookie. With a little brown sugar and baking spices. Very sweet. Almost syrupy. Agave taste on the end. Full bodied. Lingering finish.

Hard to believe that I somehow, in my effort to mount a scathing critique of every facet and cranny of the agave spirit cultural landscape, managed to miss a submission this important - but alas - after a few dippings into the desert nectar, the mind turns itself towards sweeter sources, and even pleasant tasks are left unfinished. Forsooth! Anyway, this is a good Tequila. I’d recommend pairing it with a pound of caviar, a bag and an upscale prostitute. If those aren’t available, perhaps stick to beer. Caramel, cooked agave, hints of coffee, vanilla and oak all flow together into a single triumphant olfactory monolith that lingers on the trembling tongue long after their physical conduit has slouched down the gullet. Drink it before it becomes so thoroughly associated with thugs and try-hards that it loses its appeal.

Vanilla on the nose, soft on pallet (almost tongue coating), fruity and a sting finish

The caramel is so elegantly blended into this dark but sweet powerhouse of an agave spirit. The flavor really creates a drinkability that is legendary, I try to savor this tequila drinking it only periodically to keep it the treat it truly is. Even so this is a staple for my home bar.

I’m new here, on a sipping binge to find something I like as much as (or more than) Clase Azul Repo.
