Aroma : Oak, some vanilla and caramel, trace amounts of agave and pepper. Taste : Lots of oak with a bit of underlying agave, cinnamon, and a little bit of the fruity, citrus notes I get with other expressions from Don Julio. Also some amount of honey on the palette, as well as caramel/vanilla and hazelnut. Finish : Fairly short with some predominating oak and black pepper, and some agave. This is a good Añejo, but it doesn't have enough character to speak of. The oak did too much to mask the agave and there were no new flavors that replaced it, so something seemed missing.

Sweet, oaky, caramel and vanilla. Seems to be served just about everywhere. Served neat it’ll do the job.

Take this with a rain of salt because I really don’t like most Anejo’s, this one is not my jam. Nutty flavour reminds me of sherry, I can’t pick out much agave and the last sensation is a bitter note.

Somewhat older bottle, 2009 SAT tax stamp, 38% Mexican version. Nose: Barrel spices and ripe fruit. Some caramel. Palate: Nice mouth feel. Spices, pepper, nuttiness and subtle oak. Balanced finish with a marriage of pepper and sweetness.

The aging in this mini sample from the same time frame as the blanco shows none of the yeast influence of the blanco distillate. Oak and spice dominate here and the glass displays some thin, fast legs after sipping. My palate has changed from when I first aquired these bottles and I now consider them just servicable.

Smooth barrel flavor, was a regular sipper when mixing last Los Skeletone Blues album 'Operation Avalon'.

Had to let this open up a bit due to the strength of the alcohol. From the body to the finish I get more wood than I like. Reminds me of cazadores anejo.

This is a sweet Anejo. Lots of vanilla with agave and wood. Smooth finish of caramel, oak and just enough spice.

Aroma of yeast and agave. Flavor of wood and spice is very tannic. Simple easy finish. This is a nice, middle of the road tequila. Easy to drink, nothing overpowering or overwhelming but also nothing really special.

A subtle but solid tequila. Rated blind. Straw/hay and toasted vanilla flavors. Not overly oaked, thankfully. Seems more like a Reposado. (A good thing.)

I'm more of a repo guy. Añejos feel like spicy bourbon to me. I like bourbon, but with my tequila, I want to taste the fruit, not the barrel.

Vanilla Warm Tones with a good smoky kick. Pretty good presentation of what an Añejo stands to be

Wombat vs Capybara, who would win? The answer is neither. There's more to it than violence and messy eating folks, there's cooperation, teamwork, and mutual respect. That's what I think of when I drink Don Julio Añejo. The spirit of cooperation is my spirit animal and it can be yours too.

Updating my rating. Falling in love with this one. The toasted hint with a light bouquet once you let the wood dissapate are subtle but damn if I'm not always drawn to it. Worth the markup that the dude at the liquor store lays on it. Will always be in my cabinet.

The regular Añejo May not have the pop of the 1942 but, I really enjoy the caramel and vanilla notes, the lite burn on the back end

This is just ok for the price. Too much spice and not enough flavor. Just paying for the name brand, there are plenty other options in this price range that are better.
