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 just a few pesos if you brought your own container.
It was the best tequila I’ve ever had.
Don Julio 1942 was very close to that.
This is a sipping Tequila. I almost had to slap my son because he wanted to shoot it. Once he sipped a little he understood why I was telling him to just take little sips and to enjoy it. Don Julio 1942 is smooth and finishes with hints of vanilla and 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. It was one of those beautiful spur of the movement things that I’ll remember forever.
While there is some liquid left in this picture, it was gone shortly after. Now I just have to find another special occasion or the right moment to get another bottle of Don Julio 1942 and enjoy it with my family.
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. That makes Don Julio 1942 a Sip Worthy bottle. Let me know if you agree in the comments.
Very light copper.
- Amazingly smooth and rich.
- Vanilla and agave in perfect unison.
- Very sip worthy tequila.
- At $190, that is a very expensive bottle of tequila.
