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.

Solid. Vanilla and cherry. A nice sipper but not worth the price.

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!

Smooth and fairly sweet. Vanilla and floral comes across strong, caramel/toffee, lingering heat

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

Sweet on the nose. Slight oak. Full bodied on the palate. Caramel?

Considered by many to be the King of Tequilas. A beautiful nose: caramel, vanilla, toffee, fruit, brandy, and agave. Taste is a similar profile to the nose: mostly sweet notes with some agave peeking through. Pretty thin on the tongue, smooth yet nicely spicy with a warm finish. 1942 is a lovely, soft, very tasty tequila but there is no reason it should be this pricey.

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
