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.

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.

Robust oak with smooth vanilla taste. a strong end in spices. mainly pepper. better balanced than other añejos of the same value. still too high in value for it's average taste

Great sipping tequila. The finish is good, not too harsh with some heat.

Hands down best tequila I've ever had the pleasure of drinking. From initial smell to finish, so many great levels of satisfaction. Smells faint with a bit of floral in the back, initial taste brings up butter and chocolate then straight to bright fruit like lemongrass and peaches? Has a very soft leather and oak finish, maybe even corn. I will buy this whenever I see it. This is my Blanton's of tequila.

Delicious flavor, smooth with a slight alcohol burn. For the increase in price I would recommend but will stick with the regular Don Julio Anejo

It's different for sure. Vanilla on the nose and taste, peppery finish, little smokey. I would much rather drink 1942. Would drink again, but probably not buy.

Not a fan of Cristalino’s, it has its place in our Tequila market. If I had to like one, this would be it. It’s definitely different, smooth but I feel they strip the true flavors of an Anejo besides the color. I’ll stick with DJ Anejo or 1942

Very similar to Herradura Ultra. Same flavor profile; definite hints of vanilla and caramel. Doesn't finish quite as smooth though. Another great sipping tequila.

Very nice tequila. Agave up front with a smooth mix of citrus. Finish carries agave nicely. Nice addition to the list of great tequilas.

Don Julio 70 Crystal Anejo: Redefining the silver tequila category

For Enrique de Colsa, master distiller of Don Julio tequila in Jalisco, Mexico, charcoal filtration became a seven-year science experiment that produced Don Julio 70 Crystal Anejo, a nod to the brand's 70th anniversary and homage to its founder, Don Julio
