Don Julio 1942


Gringo Rating: 





Fantastic Anejo Tequila From One of the Big Names in Tequila

From Tequila Gringo:   Light yellow color and a vanilla smell. We like vanilla. Cause it smells good. Tastes pretty good too, and in the 1942 the vanilla carries into the taste. This tequila is expensive, but it's frankly quite remarkable and in our opinion, completley worth it.  This has earned an eternal spot on our "Best Anejo's" list and is one of our favorite tequilas of any variety.  When you travel to Mexico, ask most people which tequila to get and they'll immediately tell you to get Don Julio.  They usually mean their blanco, repo and anejo's, and that's good advice, all are outstanding - but this is a cut above.  If you ever have the opportunity to try some, do it - you won't be able to say you lived a full life until you do.

From Don Julio:    Oak's apparent in the nose. Heady vanilla body with just a hint of caramel. The vanilla carries over to the glass, and it's surprising in the first taste. The agave is unbelievably balanced, the sugars so perfectly apparent in the glass, but not overpowering. It drinks like wine. Since 1942 Don Julio has cultivated agave that requires seven to ten years to reach its full maturity under the brilliant sun of Los Altos de Jalisco. As in those years, Don Julio continues to produce this tequila with the same care at “La Primavera” distillery.

Tested 6 tequilas tonight and Don Julio 1942 was by far the winner. Very smooth and full flavor.

This drinks like a fine Armagnac. I did not know Tequila could be so refined. Stuning!

Loved this tequila

I tried this at a restaurant and found it to be quite pleasing to the palate. As a beginner, I can't tell you the notes of the tequila. I know it tasted great and was well worth the experience. YUMMY!
