I don’t detect as much citrus as I thought I would since it was aged in oak wine casks that had held macerated oranges. There is more light oak and carmel on the nose, slightly sweet light vanilla with cooked agave. Maybe a hint of citrus . Drinking it I notice some oak, earthy butter and spice with pepper. A little more citrus with the finish, but nothing like I was anticipating. I feel like Codigo Añejo has more of a citrus profile than this reposado tequila, and Codigo comes in at a lower price point. If your looking for a citrus profile, I think you’ll be disappointed with this tequila. Slight oily mouthfeel. Warm finish that lingers but does not really want me craving more. I would drink a bottle if gifted to me, but I wouldn’t buy another one unless it was on clearance. Even then, I would probably put the money toward a different bottle. There are better tequilas out there.

The Grand Marnier of tequilas. I knew going into this it would be different. That being said I think it’s a nice after dinner/desert tequila. It’s not very agave forward but the orange on the nose, and the long finish of orange and vanilla left in your mouth would pair well with desert.

Very smooth. Orange hits you right away. Agree with other posters, very unique and definitely not a daily sipper but I have to hand it to Don Julio for experimenting and going beyond the normal.

Replace the vanilla aromas and flavors of 1942 with light orange and you’ve got this tequila. I found it in FL for $140 and not unhappy about the purchase but I wouldn’t buy again. Funny lots of poor reviews but to me this has a better nose and palate than original 1942 but I tend to prefer tequilas with more of a bourbon profile

Whack. Overpriced. All hype. Should have that 1942 label ripped right off. I'll try it again in a couple weeks... maybe it will be better

very oaky and dry, not much depth or agave.

Interesting stuff with notes of cooked agave, pepper, oranges, raisins, dark chocolate, vanilla, coffee, pineapples, figs, and mangoes. Less sweet and more rounded than 1942.

Went for a second taste to see if I judged too hard. The first time. The aroma is slightly orange hints and light. Flavor leaves something to be desired. It tastes more like an orange peel than a tequila. It’s overpriced for the flavor. I find it more of a gimmick tequila than what I would use for sipping. I’ll drink what I have but won’t purchase it again.

Definitely a different tequila. Color, flavor, smoothness and smell are very nice. Personally I like the flavor though I can see some people will be turned off by it. Priced between Don Julio’s 1942 and 70 it fills a gap for those who want something a little bit different. I hope they continue making it.

Surprisingly balanced, a light heavy on the mouth feel for an 8 month aged Repo. Definitely taste orange, caramel, slight cooked agave. Nice package, would score higher if not for the price. First impressions, I prefer this over their 1942 Anejo
