    Wine Enthusiast:  "A stunning limited-edition añejo. The golden color and caramel scent hint at what’s to come: sweet agave flavor, a lingering whisper of smoke and mellow notes of tropical fruit, Sauternes and butterscotch." May 2011 

    Tequila.net: 
    "The process begins by hand selecting Agave plants that take seven to ten years to mature. The Agave is then slowly roasted for 70 hours in traditional masonry ovens and double distilled in a special alambique. This limited edition Tequila is crafted from the finest Agave and aged until it reaches the most extraordinary levels of flavor and character."

    Distillery:  "Color: Brilliant golden hue. Nose: Rich, sweet aromas of caramel and toffee. Taste: A silky, smooth character that coats the palate with roasted agave and vanilla flavors, sun-ripened tropical fruits, and spiced undertones. Finish: Beautiful, sweet agave-laced finish with lingering hints of oak and rich vanilla essence.

    Distinguished and refined, this special Añejo is produced in small batches and reflects Don Julio González's life-long passion for making the highest quality tequila. Its sweet and complex aroma complements an equally intriguing range of flavors including hints of warm oak, pepper and cinnamon for an ultra smooth tequila with astonishing depth and character. Enjoy neat in a Tequila snifter.  The Don Julio 1942 pays tribute to the year that Don Julio González began his tequila-making journey."
