Horrible as a Cristalino gimmick. Fake pine, vanilla, chocolate, fruit etc. An overly sugary finish... absolutely horrendous

Agave is pretty much lost in this tequila. Really sweet and fake vanilla flavor. That said, this is a good option for people who don’t consider themselves tequila drinks. It’s approachable.

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

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.

Most purists don’t like cristalinos and while I do prefer a more traditional tequila, I’ve got a soft spot for cristalinos. This one is the best I’ve had, it’s got good flavor, you get vanilla and a bit of subtle sweetness. Unfortunately, most of the agave flavor has been filtered out of this one. Is it still tasty? Yes, very much so. Just some of the flavors I enjoy are gone with this one(and most cristalinos).

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.

Very easy drinker but not a traditional tasting tequila at all. Fruity, chocolatey, and way too sweet for my liking. If you’re in the mood for a traditionally-made añejo I’d stay far away, but late into the night I might not shy away from this. There’s definitely better to be had for the price though.

Overrated tequila in the Hispanic community. Price on this bottle specifically has spiked $25-$30 more than before. Stick with Fortaleza or 7 leguas

Too many additives. Stay away and drink additive free tequila.

This is the only cristalino I have tried. I can see where it’s going to create smooth experience by tampering down the spice and highlighting the sweetness and vanilla. I would probably explore other options next time in the cristalino but if you find it at Costco for $60 like I did then it’s not a bad deal.

It's not completely awful? It has Barrel notes and vanilla but very little agave. It's shippable if there's nothing else better but certainly not a go to.

Original DJ Anejo is better. This has a nice aroma, but the taste and after has the burn of a Blanco.

While it tastes smooth and has the added flavors of vanilla and caramel , then they filter out color and ? A bit pricey for a “ non authentic “ tequila . Don Julio would not be pleased .

This is smooth. Lovely aroma to start, my nose filled with notes of vanilla and oak. The taste at first is smooth and follows up with a bit of a bite. The finish makes this experience a high rated one in my book. Definitely a sipper, no mixing here.

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
