Aroma: black pepper, cooked agave, earth, wet grass, butter, salt brine, eucalyptus. Really nice nose. Reminds of a warm cologne in a way. Flavor: lemon zest, cooked agave, hints of vanilla and cinnamon, some minerality which reminds me of a fresh rain, and a soft vegetal finish with a lingering smoky element. The is a really nice supper. Not overly complex but still keeps you guessing. Mouth feel is very soft and leans more viscous. Almost no burn whatsoever. Very solid blanco!

Tastes old school, sweet and clean. Good value considering it’s ~500 MXN. Perfect for sipping or mixing, would recommend as a budget option easily available in Mexico.

Once I open this screw top bottle I get a nice whiff of fresh agave. After pouring a sample into my stolzle jarrito I can see the nice legs and tears. The agave scent is very pleasant. It’s clean and accompanied with a slight vegetal note, faint minerality and some subtle sweetness. There’s some crisp citrus too but mostly it’s just good clean cooked agave that’s free from any defects. - The taste is balanced with the nose. It’s full of clean agave and there’s some natural sweetness that typically follows cooked agave. The citrus is stronger on the palate than the nose and some nice pepper appears on the finish. There’s a nice alcohol tingle and some building heat. The sweetness and pepper linger but the sweetness fades first. - Overall this is a good quality blanco tequila that you can sip on but it’s bold enough that it should hold up in a cocktail nicely.

Aug 18, 2023 Tasted at monroe liquor store I was pleasantly surprised by this expression. really didn't have high expectations since it came out of NOM 1416 I enjoyed it tho I didn't get a lot of complexity and the finish was short. however, since I was sipping out of little plastic sample cups, I want to revisit from a proper tasting glass

This expression is good and has an appealing framework: Cooked agave, herbal, vegetal, citrus, low alcohol intake, grass, and kick of cinnamon/spices at the end. Slightly bitter and some minerality can be perceived. Wish it was a bit cheaper, maybe in the $30-35 range, since it has pretty good competitors at its current MSRP of $45

Mil Nueve Cuarenta as the bottle says is made to reminisce about how tequila used to be, single state agave (sic), brick ovens, deep well water, your own yeast, pot still distillation, and now confirmed additive free. Some other info is included on the bottle such as altitude, filtering and that this is produced by 100% Mexican owned distillery, an important distinction in an era of multinational brand and facility ownership. For me this succeeds in the execution of these bottle bullets, providing a very nice sipping experience and I look ahead to the Reposado in the US. How does it taste? Completely clean with decent viscosity and oil and with a ton of natural sweetness and surprisingly mild taste of ethanol for all the peppery sweetness carried by it. Bottled on 18/05/2023 and tastes very fresh It’s a screw top too, though opening the bottle wasn’t as easy as that implies.

Aroma: Not a strong, forceful nose, but a uniquely interesting nose. Lots of contrasting notes. Baking spice and grassiness. Green agave with a touch of eucalyptus. Lemon/orange citrus fragrance. Ripe pineapple rind, vegetal nuances and an undercurrent of finely ground white pepper. Flavor: Cinnamon Graham Cracker entrance. Picks up steam with warming pepper, clean estuary salinity, agave and late blooming floral elements. Medium weight and body. A hint of bitterness. The dominant pepper and natural sweetness finish take their time bidding goodbye.

This is a traditionally-made and confirmed additive-free tequila, and I’m excited to see it coming from Campo Azul. Don’t automatically dismiss this one because it comes from NOM 1416, you’ll be missing out.

Cool that there's no addatives. White pepper, olives, and lactic in the aromas. Citrus, limestone, and raw agave in the taste. Spear minty in the finish.

Nice oily legs in the glass. Aroma has an initial hit of alcohol. I just opened the bottle, so I let it rest for a while. Now I get cooked agave, citrus and grass. Flavor of cooked agave, black pepper and citrus. The black pepper spiciness lingers for a nice, long while.

Possibly the most agave-forward aroma of any tequila I’ve had to date. Taste is also heavy agave, and extremely smooth. Picked up at Specs in Houston October 2023

How does this come out of a poor distillery? This may be the only non diffuser product they make. It shows that people know how to make good tequila but choose to cut corners. The mild agave aroma leads into an agave and pepper flavor which ends with agave and cinnamon. Each sip got better. A fair price. The screw cap could go but that is nitpicking. I will recommend because this hits many flavor profiles that a large assortment of tequila fans enjoy. As an aside,,, I like the story line. I hope this distillery burns their diffuser and gets back to making traditional tequila because 1940 shows that they know how.

Pleasantly surprised. As it sits for a minute it really opens up with a lot of flavor. Full of agave, mint, touches of cinnamon. I’m enjoying. I had a hard time opening the bottle. As a bartender this is the flaw in the packaging I didn’t like.

LOTE 23AB002A23, bottled on 17-02-2023. Aroma: raw agave, briny, very green but soft, anise. Palate: salted raw agave, anise, alcohol sensation is medium, aromas are quite expressive & aromatic, clean. Finish is medium to long, salted raw agave notes persist.

Sampled in a shot glass need to revisit. Aroma of cooked agave, mint, black pepper, citrus. There’s also some raw agave and grass in the aroma that shows itself in the background of the palate. Talking about the palate… lots of sweet agave, lemon, mint, pepper with a nice long finish of similar flavors. There was a nice bit of anise at the end of the finish.

Great smell (reminds me of Caschuin). It's got that grassy Swiss cheese thing going on. Nice taste overall with some crisp green jalapeño and some floral notes. Though felt thin on the mouth feel at times. Smooth finish with some light bitterness.

I was really impressed with this offering from Campo Azul. While this tequila is far from being edgy, it does everything well. 1940 blanco delivers a balanced profile that is very clean, crisp, and easy to sip. Both the aroma and taste are an excellent example of a highlands tequila. Very sweet, creamy, and fruity. This is a tequila that I would have no problem having on hand to either sip, mix, or share with friends - while not breaking the wallet.
