We’ve all been there and tried to impress someone by ordering this tequila. Maybe it worked - maybe it didn’t. Regardless of the outcome it’s slightly above average on a good day.

A little disappointed considering all the hype about this tequila. Still a good tequila that I will drink. Aroma is the best part: warm with agave and good sweetness. Taste is good but very simple. Finish is long lasting but not very tasty—just ok.

If this tequila was in the $85 range, it would be my go-to tequila. But if I'm going to splurge or someone is looking to get me a gift, this is at the top of the list.

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.

i did not like this. overpriced and anything but smooth. i almost gagged on it. i think people just like it because it has a high price at the bar. try something else and save some money

For the hype I was expecting more. Don’t get me wrong it’s a well above average tequila! But for the hype I was expecting exceptional this is not that. But it’s a very good tequila for any occasion.

Vanilla similar to 70 but much more complex cherry, butterscotch and oak. Very light color for this añejo.

The nose is very sweet. Just too sweet for my personal taste. Frosting and burned sugar and cream. Taste was the same, like Bananas Foster (bananas and heated brown sugar and butter). I just don’t enjoy a tequila where i have to hunt and peck for traditional flavors. In a 2.5 year anjeo, i want to taste the agave first, then the flavors from the barrel. And this just didn’t happen here for me. I tasted the barrel and not the agave. Im probably in the minority, but I didn’t find this exceptional. It was $32 for a 1.5 ounce pour and it was sitting next to G4 Blanco which was $23. Really glad i tried it, but I would have enjoyed Felipe’s instead.

It’s the 1942! A very great tequila that is easily recognizable but the price tag has many shy away from. It goes without saying that this isn’t your shooter, the vanilla is the scent that is easily detected, and can overtake the body, but the agave, oak, butterscotch, and earthy aromas and flavor compliment it very well to take a sweet flavor, to a more bodied, well accompanied tequila. Easily enjoyed neat, as it’s very smooth. This is a tequila that has to be in a collection, and opened for special occasions. The price tag is high, but when you allow the aromas to compliment the body, and sit with the finish, you see why this is a very well made and drank tequila.

Aroma is not true to flavour. I take a musky flavour.

Smoooth as silk (yeah three o’s). Sweet but not over powering. Slight peppery tingle towards the end but in a nice way. There are many flavors to find in each sip. This is a very impressive tequila and I have a bottle of Casa Dragones Jovan. I love this one. Tied for my absolute favorite."
