When I was much younger I used to enjoy drinking Tequila. I had a friend from Mexico and when his family would come up to visit they would bring local tequila in milk jugs. The distillery (I wish I could remember which one) would let them fill a jug for a dollar (30 pesos back then I think).
It was the finest tequila I’ve ever had.
Don Julio 1942 was very close to that.
It was smooth, so very smooth with a lovely vanilla mixed with agave.
Why did I have a bottle of Don Julio 1942? One of my son’s desperately needed a haircut, so he came over so I could cut his hair – which then turned into a board game night, which turned into us all getting drunk.
While there is some liquid left in this picture, it was gone shortly after.
I’ve become a bourbon and Irish Whiskey aficionado, but this tequila was delightful and well worth a sip, especially if someone else is paying for it, which earned it 80 out of 100 points.
- Amazingly smooth and rich.
- Vanilla and agave in perfect unison.
- Very sip worthy tequila.
- At $160, that is a very expensive bottle of tequila.
