Great tasting and very smooth. Strong hints of vanilla and caramel, but not too sweet. Great sipping tequila! Just wish it didn't cost so much. Would buy more often if price was lower.

Enjoy in PV in the winter. Pricey anejo but worth it. Carmel, toast, agave in a smooth blend. Calm wonderful finish.

Nice sipper. Caramel forward but not sweet. This is a great one that you can count on most restaurants and bars to have. A bit overpriced but solid flavor and aroma wise.

If you can find it for under $100 buy it. Very good but not $120/bottle good.

I love this tequila, but balance my drinking between the 1942 that I find to be heavily influenced by caramel and the Don Julio 70 that I find heavily influenced by vanilla.

not much to say about this. 1942 lives up to its hype. goes down perfect, then warms the body from the belly up like a fresh cup of cocoa or coffee in the winter.

One of my favorites for the money; on the nose, sweet vanilla, hints of butterscotch, light agave; more vanilla, butterscotch & slight fruit across the palette; slight, sweet agave burn with strong caramel & more vanilla; when I can find at a price of $100-110 USD, I always purchase 1 or 2 bottles.

Although it’s totally a sweet smeller, it’s smells awesome and our guests love it! Toffee, butterscotch, caramels and vanillas, slight hints of oak but very subtle and underneath all the sweetness. Not sure if this is even tequila at this point! Sits light on the pallet, little hits of spice, bourbon notes, lots the the sweetness is left behind on the nose but thats not disappointing as it sets you up for a nice sip of tequila. Finish is long yet subtle, lovely job.

overly smoky that detracts from agave taste

Love this tequilla. keep two bottles on hand and truly just for shipping. I've used this to convert no tequila drinkers. super smooth no bite or strong aftertaste. you can tase the oak barrel smokiness and sweet flavors of the barrel. To be enjoyed slowly not mixed or diluted.

Good stuff, but too expensive and a bit too sweet for my tastes. Having experienced more extra añejos recently I’m understanding that they’re generally too sweet for me. Would be cool to see distillers creating a separate recipe for long aging that is less sweet so the barrel aging doesn’t make the end product so cloying.

It’s good, but overrated...

Beautiful nose, caramel, butterscotch but still pepper and a hint of agave. Balance on the palette is great, spicy with loads of barrel. Finish represents the great barrel work with just the right amount of bitter.

It’s a gateway tequila to the higher end of the spectrum, so to speak. Easy to find at most decent enough bars and on store shelves. It tastes really good, lots of oak, lots of vanilla and caramel, it’s a bit on the sweeter side but not as much as other higher end Añejo and XA’s. Perfect dessert tequila. It’s one of the tequilas that makes the average drinker say “I didn’t know tequila could taste like this”. Used to be a frequent “splurge” buy in my early 20’s when it was still about $100. Now that I’ve discovered better tequilas and that I KNOW I lean towards blancos more than anything, I don’t drink it nearly as much. Tough to justify spending $120-$150 on 1942 when Cascahuin, G4 and Terralta all have XA offerings for $100 or less. Still, a very fine tequila that’ll always very be special to me. It’s an awesome gift, whether you’re receiving a 1942 or gifting it. Goes great neat, no ice needed for this one. Salud!
