    I love tequila and one thing I learned was to drink it with an orange. First bite the orange then take a sip or shot, then eat the orange after you drink it. The flavors get truly enhanced and you enjoy the taste

    Solid consistent flavor for a tequila that is a good to time after time. Over the years many tequilas have been bought out and the quality lessened and the price goes up, but with Don Julio 70th is great the quality has not changed.

    I like to drink Tequila in all its variations and styles. That being said...f you want a sophisticated easy sipping Tequila... this is the one to get! Don't ruin it with mixers...just pour it over some ice and ad a slice of lime if you like. Perfect! Expensive but worth it:)

FAQs

In recent years, the tequila industry has enjoyed explosive growth in popularity worldwide. To stand out from the crowded market, tequila producers are crafting entirely new expressions — hence, the Cristalino from Don Julio. The lauded tequila company developed its Cristalino tequila in 2011 (originally under the name Añejo Claro) to celebrate the brand’s 70th anniversary. Don Julio 70 Cristalino is a unique expression that looks like a simple Blanco tequila but actually possesses the bold caramel, oak, and vanilla taste of an aged añejo. To achieve Cristalino’s misleading clarity, tequila makers employ a carbon filtration method that removes the spirit’s amber color but enhances its fruity and floral qualities in the process.
Don Julio began in 1942, and in 2011, the luxury tequila brand released Don Julio Anejo 70th Anniversary in honor of its birthday. The Cristalino anniversary tequila (originally called Don Julio 70 Añejo Claro) is different in the best way, as it spends 18 months in American white-oak barrels before it is filtered and redistilled into a clear, albeit complex, final product. Don Julio 70 isn’t the only charcoal-filtered añejo tequila on the market, though it claims to be the first. Not all Cristalino tequilas are created equal, and Don Julio Anejo's 70th Anniversary is special. You’re getting the crisp flavor from the hand-harvested Blue Weber agave, plus the lingering warmth from the barrel-aging process.
Don Julio 70 is a unique tequila that combines the purity of the Blanco style with the flavor elements of an aged spirit. Because of the rich caramel qualities from the aging process, consider this a gift for someone who appreciates barrel-aged spirits. However, at around $60 or more for a traditional 750mL bottle, Don Julio 70 Cristalino is a present best saved for a notable birthday or particularly special celebration (perhaps an engagement or retirement party). Don’t worry about bringing any extra ingredients to the party — Don Julio 70 Cristalino is very smooth and tasty, and it’s meant to be sipped on its own.

Drizly's take

Don Julio 70th Anniversary Tequila Añejo uses the expertise and knowledge of one of the world's leading tequila aficionados to combine the simple smoothness of a blanco tequila with the complex nuances of an añejo tequila liquor to craft the first-ever aged silver tequila. The 18-month aging process provides whispers of vanilla, honey and toasted oak on the palate and leaves soft notes of aging on the nose. In the end, you have a clean, warm finish that culminates in lingering hints of oak. 

For a flavorful treat, serve Don Julio 70® Tequila Añejo with sparkling water in a tall glass capped with a dried citrus garnish for color. Agave añejo tequila makes a great pair for picnic snacks like an avocado sandwich on rye or something more formal, like grilled pork tenderloin.
