I’m a tequila novice – so take all of this with a grain of salt (no pun intended) – but I bought this bottle for a friend’s wedding and was able to enjoy it with them recently. Despite the fact that I’m a novice, this is the best tequila I’ve ever tasted. It’s the most complex tequila I’ve ever tasted as well. My criticism would be that it’s almost TOO light and easy to drink – I generally prefer something more bold. However, when I can get lots of different flavor notes out of something, even something delicate like this 1942, I have to call it excellent.
1: Gross I can’t even drink this crap.
2: Poor I would force this down in good company
3: Bad I wouldn’t have to force it down, but it’s not good either.
4: Not Bad But still not good.
5: Just OK Average.
6: Good Above average, but not special.
7: Very Good Well above average.
8: Excellent This is a favorite of mine for sure.
9. Amazing I would bathe in this if I could afford to.
10. Life Altering Nothing could be better than this.
