    Great drink for my birthday thanks

  • Ernie

    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:)

    Don't really like this one. Not only is has many additives and it is not made from 100% agave. Anything that is not made of 100% agave stay away from. Thank me late!

FAQs

For anyone hoping to explore the many intricacies amidst the tequila market, it’s essential to understand the nuances between the different categories: gold and silver are the most obvious, but there are also reposados, añejo and extra añejo. Each style has its own process and flavor, but the añejo varieties are considered the spirit’s richest form. Añejo tequilas are more mature and complex than other tequila expressions; they are barrel-aged for at least 1-3 years and often feature robust flavor profiles that include notes of bright orange, dried fruit and toasty vanilla; as such, a premium añejo is meant to be sipped and savored like a fine scotch.
Añejo is a Spanish adjective meaning “mature” when used to describe a tequila or a mezcal; the word has roots in the Latin adjective “anniculus,” which translates to “one year old.” The term impeccably fits the añejo tequila category. Mexico’s Tequila Regulatory Council (TRC), which sets the standards for the tequila industry, requires that añejo tequila is aged for a minimum of one year in oak barrels, which lends to the spirit’s signature amber color and complex flavors. Don’t take the names on the label lightly — the Mexican government owns the rights to tequila and supervises and requires strict compliance to the regulations required of the different tequila expressions.
While many añejo tequila connoisseurs prefer to sip the rich spirit slowly sans ice or other mixers, you do have some options that pair well. Añejo tequilas are aged at least a year in wooden barrels, and as such, have a strong flavor that can easily overpower a mixed beverage — lean on simple, classic ingredients like lime, orange, grapefruit and other equally bright citrus juices and sodas; or, consider muddling a bold and spicy jalapeno with a bit of sugar and lime. Because of its aged quality, añejo tequilas often substitute well in popular bourbon or whiskey cocktails such as an Añejo Old Fashioned or an Añejo Sour.
Any grocery store that sells liquor will carry the more common types of tequila, but you will likely need to patronize your local craft liquor store to find premium tequila varieties like añejos and extra añejos (don’t forget — Drizly lets you see what tequilas are in stock near you). As you survey the tequilas available locally, don’t waste your money on anything aged for too long as the oak flavor may overpower the otherwise rich flavors; notably, the minimum aging time for extra añejo is three years though some are aged past ten years. Silver and gold tequilas are generally very affordable, whereas the premium varieties can easily surpass $40 per bottle.

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.
