What the hell were they thinking?! This crap is horrible! Notes or cardboard and hand sanitizer! Furthur añejo from NOM 1414 got it right with the orange cask aging and is damn delicious! DJ primavera is undrinkable for me.

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

Great smell after it opens up: lots of citrus, overall, very pleasant and inviting. Flavor is just okay: it reminds me if citrus version of Don Julio Anejo, similar profile and a subtle tingly finish. I think it’s overpriced for what this is.

Some very light orange on taste and smell. The typical vanilla and caramel. A bit more alcohol than I was expecting. I thought it would an easier sipper. I sampled this at a restaurant for $10, but would not spend the money for a full bottle.

I find the rasp on this to harsh, the alcohol came through just a bit too much. I’d rather drink 70 or regular DJ anejo which both cost way less.

Caramel/ vanilla comes to me on the smell. The vanilla reminds me of Vanilla Coke Taste is less vanilla more caramel

The citrus makes this nice when having a high quality margarita. I enjoy it as a sipper

Om the nose it is overly sweet and has notes of caramel, and a sweet-citrusy hint in the back end. I can’t really taste much of the agave on the front end, more like in the middle and fades fairly quickly, leaving me with a chemical aftertaste. For the price, it is not a “go to”, but it does not taste as manipulated as the Ultima Reserva.

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.

such a good brand but poor batch honestly in my opinion. experience was not what i expected. aromas floral and vanilla. taste is hard to differentiate, finish not what i expected for the value really poor. oil body.

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

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.
