Classic anejo profile with an exceptionally smooth finish. The aroma is loaded with Vanilla and nuts. This one is special.

My favorite tequila to date, nice hints of caramel and subtle sweetness. Don't ever mix this...it's a sipper only!

Hyped Anejo, great package, smooth flavor profile, excellently balanced. A little pricey but when production can’t keep up with demand that’s what we get.

It's worth every penny. Sweet with cooked agave.

If you asked me to rate DJ 1942 from 6+yrs ago, you would get a tequila that exhibited some of the best balance between slight vegetal and matured caramel sweetness...plus a rating 10pts higher. But for now, it is above average with much better competition in the arena.

One of my absolute favorite tequilas. Has one of the smoothest finishes I've ever had the pleasure of drinking.

New to tequila tasting and loving every sip. Don Julio 1942 blew me away at how smooth it was.

Great tasting and very smooth. Strong hints of vanilla and caramel, but not too sweet. Great sipping tequila! Just wish it didn't cost so much. Would buy more often if price was lower.

Nice sipper. Caramel forward but not sweet. This is a great one that you can count on most restaurants and bars to have. A bit overpriced but solid flavor and aroma wise.

If you can find it for under $100 buy it. Very good but not $120/bottle good.

I love this tequila, but balance my drinking between the 1942 that I find to be heavily influenced by caramel and the Don Julio 70 that I find heavily influenced by vanilla.

not much to say about this. 1942 lives up to its hype. goes down perfect, then warms the body from the belly up like a fresh cup of cocoa or coffee in the winter.

One of my favorites for the money; on the nose, sweet vanilla, hints of butterscotch, light agave; more vanilla, butterscotch & slight fruit across the palette; slight, sweet agave burn with strong caramel & more vanilla; when I can find at a price of $100-110 USD, I always purchase 1 or 2 bottles.
