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.

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."

If you can buy it in Mexico it’s like $90 US. Up here in the states runs close to $150.

Great tequila. Creme brulee. Would be good as an aperitif. Strong vanilla carmel orange zest with slight cinnamon on the nose. Oily extreme smooth feel in the mouth. Buttery sweet smooth taste with barrel spice and cinnamon on the finish.

I’ve been drinking this stuff like it’s stolen! Actually I had it first at the excellent “The Mission” restaurant in Scottsdale AZ at Kierland. That glass was wonderful and the restaurant has a practice of giving you the bottle if you empty it. So I got the bottle. It was that good. The restaurant is fabulous too - please visit when you are in town. I went through another bottle over the next couple of months because it serves up abundant tequila essence yet adds gobs of so much eggy French vanilla ice cream flavor that you almost expect to see vanilla bean flecks afloat in your Riedel. Last week I was staring at that newly-empty bottle and getting depressed until my dear friends gifted me a new 1942 for my birthday. Keep it up Don Julio!
