Pricey, but a great indulgence. There’s a reason every decent tequila bar stocks 1942.

Beautiful aroma of vanilla, oak, whiskey, sightly smokey, and some agave. The taste is delicious with oak, vanilla, whiskey, even a hint of tobacco for me. I am not tasting much agave but considering how long it aged in bourbon barrels that is not surprising. The finish is long and leaves so many flavors in your mouth. I have waited a long to try this and it was worth the wait.

Slight smokiness with wonderful notes of vanilla, the bountiful fullness of oak coats the palette. Very pricey but when chilled works well to relax you and complete a relaxing evening.

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.

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.

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.

Don Julio 1942 Tequila: Old vs. New – Which is better?

Don’t you just love change? Let’s face it, most of us don’t, which is why it can be downright scary when theres a change to your favorite tequila. When the bottle changes you can’t help but worry if the tequila has changed as well. One such case is the me
