Horrible as a Cristalino gimmick. Fake pine, vanilla, chocolate, fruit etc. An overly sugary finish... absolutely horrendous

Still the best Cristalino I’ve run across, I like that it still maintains some of the agave profile in the nose. Scary smooth, this is the kind of bottle that gets drained without even noticing. Really sweet milk chocolate ending.

Vanilla, caramel, but lacks in agave

Nose: Citrus, pineapple and agave. Some cinnamon and licorice. Flavors: Vanilla, toasted hazelnuts, leather notes followed up with mellow black pepper. Borderline too sweet for me. I’m not generally a fan of cristalinos, but this might be the best of the genre.

Light, unremarkable aroma. Much stronger flavor and finish; oak, vanilla, caramel. Medium body with a smooth lingering finish.

Too much vanilla on the finish but not enough on the nose, not a big fan of the Clear añejos, no wood flavor on an añejo? The finish reminds me of Splenda aftertaste

Aroma is medicinal with hint of coconut.

Tastes very manipulated, odd, does not taste like you would expect a tequila to taste. I suppose that if you don't like the taste of tequila, that may be a good thing, but I'm not one of those people.

I am in Cozumel and wanted to try Don Julio 1942. All the restaurant had was the DJ 70. I am fairly new to better tequilas but found it undrinkable. I prefer a thicker creamier tequila with a touch of caramel, butterscotch or vanilla.

Definitely can tell that it has additives. Smells like cake and taste like icing. Not bad if your into that, but I like to taste the agaves purity

Tiene un olor fresco y floral un poco dulce a agave Sabor a vainilla, apimientado, y fresco. El after taste es bueno aún que pica un poco en labios y en la lengua

I'm not a big Chrystalino fan, but the Don Julio 70 was a nice sipper. I probably will not buy this, but if I received it as a gift I wouldn't hesitate to polish off the bottle.

$50-$75 Range - not a bad Tequila for the money. This is a Cristalino Anejo because it is filtered through carbon to remove color.. seems like it would have been smoother, but overall decent.

The aroma has a sweet with some agave. The flavor is like vanilla and a hint of spice.

Aroma: smells strongly of toffee, some agave, sor to how crystallized things smell flavor: so very smooth, light and sweet, envelops the mouth, a little spice at the front, feel the warmth in your chest finish: not terribly strong but lingers a fair amount. enjoyable, and could sip this regularly.

Aroma: Toffee, Caramel, followed by a tiny bit of agave. Very sweet. Flavor: More agave than on the nose. Still sweet with caramel and vanilla notes. Finish: Not super long. Leaves a sugar taste in the mouth. Tiny bit of a tingly feeling.
