This was my first clear Añejo, and I think it did a great introduction. You’ll get a beautiful Agave nose, hints of grassy and earthy goodness, with subtle citrus sitting in the back. It’s flavor packs a punch! Not a bite, but how the flavors touch the palate is not what you’d expect if you’re new to a clear Añejo. Very smooth Agave, beautiful oak body, and the citrus you pick up in the aroma comes in the finish very subtle as well. You have to enjoy this neat, to respect its full flavor and beautiful taste. It’s Don Julio! You have to have this in the collection and have to savor the bottle. A fairly priced piece of work that will make any celebration memorable!

Little too sweet for me but good finish!! Probably the best of the cristalinos I’ve tasted so far.

My first experience with Añejo clara. Aroma ok. Taste is good with some pepper. Smooth finish.

This was my first claro/cristalino and while I felt like this was a very strange pour I quite enjoyed it. There was just enough oakiness and baking spice to remind you that this was an añejo but the agave shined through like a blanco. The only thing wrong with it in my opinion was that neither was quite as prominent as I'd prefer so while it was a smooth, drinkable pour, it was a little weak overall. That said I would definitely drink it again and will be adding it to my rotation.

Very ice sipping tequila with a mellow and sweet flavor up front. This anejo has a wonderful and subtle complex yet mellow flavor. A bit pricey..

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.

when I first started to drink tequila a couple of years ago this was a favorite. after trying many more my palate has changed. not sure why they distil everything that is tequila out. no agave. no oak.

This confuses me as a tequila connoisseur. It doesn’t taste aged and I can’t taste much agave. ????

I feel like cristalinos strip so much flavor from their tequila. And by doing so strip the aroma even more. It makes it hard to recommend when you can enjoy a silver or a true anejo for the same price and tons more flavor. Just not worth the value. This particular cristalino is so base in flavor that it is great for the inexperienced tequila enthusiast.

Sure you get the smoothness of aging. Almost felt like they went too far. Was expecting it to be better .

Subtle nose with lot of vanilla and some agave. Nice vanilla forward sweetness and raw agave. Slight burn. Smooth fast finish. Very slight bitterness at the end of the finish.

Smooth! Great aroma of chocolate, roasted nuts and oak. Full agave taste, with a slight oak sting. (smooth) with an excellent finish of roasted nuts and oak. The finish is everything for this tequila. Highly recommend!

This was my first exposure to this new wave of "clear anejos".... I thought it was a novelty at the time. I still think so. Seems like everybody jumped on this trend and suddenly there all sorts of clear anejos on the market. I don't see the point of filtering the colour out of an anejo.... unless this is simply a blanco that has had the flavor profile modified with additives..... Taste is "okay"....Aroma is "okay" If you want to drink an anejo, drink an anejo that hasn't been altered artificially. Don't like the colour of a proper anejo? Close your eyes....

Doesn't taste like tequila at all... The taste is really strange, it's the first cristalino I have tried, but I just find it really strange... it's not bad but I don't like it.

70 is a favorite of mine when I want just a slightly lighter flavor then a colored anejo. Easy to drink and savor.

Great cristalino, appreciate such a good aftertaste. I would never try to mix it or drink it with lime/salt. it needs to be straight, perhaps some cheese and quince paste. Perfect flavour with balanced nose, wonderful experience, but I think overpriced since is a Don Julio. other cristalinos out there are bit more reasonable priced and are as good. Nice bottle, makes a great gift.

The nose was a strong agave that I crave, but first taste was hotter than I expected.. overall good and even better on the rocks, but not my favorite Don Julio...
