Don Julio 70th Anniversary Tequila Anejo Cristalino
Don Julio 70th Anniversary Tequila Anejo Cristalino - Quite a lot happening on the nose with vanilla cream, cinnamon, and caramel-covered popcorn. A faint hint of green herbs and minerality is found as well. The tequila is rich and soft on your palate as well as sweet. The finish is spicy and herb filled with the tequila ending up on the bitter and dry side.
Don Julio 70 is an añejo tequila that is filtered to remove the color imparted in the aging process. It is aged for 18 months in used American white oak barrels. 70 does not refer to the proof (which is 80 proof), but to the 70th anniversary of the distillery Don Julio started in 1942. This bottling was released in 2012 to commemorate that occasion.
