Aroma : Butterscotch, oak, vanilla, caramel. Also some dark chocolate and almond. Taste : Medium/full bodied with some oils. Small amounts of agave, but lots of distinctive vanilla and caramel. Oak, cinnamon, toffee, and trace amounts of black pepper and orange flavor. Finish : Long with lasting notes of more vanilla and caramel, as well as oak, toffee and cinnamon. Light cooked agave here as well, but not much. This is an interesting one because it's definitely a sweet tequila with TONS of vanilla and caramel, but it doesn't seem "sickly" sweet. And although this is good, it doesn't have the best value at $120 USD for a bottle.

A bit sweet for me. Very well balanced between agave and oak, but personally I’d like a bit more agave and a bit less sweet !! Sure to be a crowd pleaser, and would most likely convert a whiskey drinker to the beauty of agave.

Good stuff but doesn’t blow my skirt up, a tad too sweet with that vanilla bomb finish. This is a great gateway drug, turns people into true believers

Nose: Loads of creamy vanilla. Fruit, barrel spice and cream soda. Oily in the mouth. Balanced fruit, spices and pepper. A bit of maple towards the end. First rate tequila. Finish teases you to drink more...

sweet oak barrel front followed by deep caramel smooth sweetnees, light smoke and pepper finish. love the finish....almost minty and refreshing with enough oak sweetness to remind you of its fine aging roots.

Aromas of butterscotch, pineapple, caramel and agave. Flavors are smooth and enticing. Warm chocolate and agave. Finish is oak, agave, dark chocolate, cinnamon bark and hint of tropical fruit.

The aroma is very nice, with vanilla and black tea notes . 1942 is so easy on the palate, it's a perfect dessert tequila. Finishes with a strong toffee flavor.

Is this Tequila? The nose is awesome. I enjoy smelling this tequila as much as I like tasting it. The nose is full of caramel, vanilla and cooked agave with a hint of oak. The taste is sweet cooked agave, dry candy and caramel. The finish is as smooth as it gets! Salud!

Must be in the mood for a vanilla bomb tonight so rated a few points higher. 26/06/2018. May just be my palate this evening, but this is a too sweet vanilla bomb to the point of being one note. Good but not great. A newer bottling from the last year or so.

Immediate blast of vanilla and caramel - sweet, sweet, sweet. Vanilla flavor mixes nicely with agave and spice. Soft, spice lingers on the finish. Overall, very nice but a little too much sweetness for my taste.

Beautiful vanilla nose and herbal notes once it opens up. A nice oily mouthfeel and warm finish.

Aroma: Strong vanilla note. It's almost the only thing that I pick up on. There are some hints of caramel and almond Flavor: I always worry that with an XA the flavor will be overpowered by the aging in the barrel. But, it holds up here and maintains the strong vanilla note. Finish: Nice long smooth finish.

To steal a phrase, 'Is this tequila?' Up front, the palate is a wash in smooth, silky carmel and vanilla. Add in a subtle tastes of agave, oak, and cinnamon, and toffee. The finish is long, long, long. Amazing sipper that will leave you wondering, is this tequila.

Smooth, easy on the nose, doesn’t leave a harsh taste. Very nice to sip on, not a tequila that I would mix. Only con is that it’s hard to find a store that has a bottle in stock.

Damn, this stuff was great! Sweet agave , caramel, fruit, cinnamon,and wood notes. I’ve heard people say it is too sweet, I don’t believe this to be so, I believe it is very balanced. The value is up to the drinker, I won’t buy it, mine was given to me as a present.

Too sweet for my taste. Notes of agave and whiskey. A little overpriced and overrated in lieu of other less pricier Tequilas with similar notes.
