it's tough converting my friends that went through college doing shots of this liquid. Slowly winning them over with even sips of El jimador. It doesn't belong in a cocktail if at minimum it's not 100 percent agave. period.

I have not tried a lot of cheap "tequilas" in México, but this thing is awful and undrinkable. It is not even 100% tequila, it is popular in the parties due to the José Cuervo marketing, but even the awful Cabrito or Rancho Escondido tastes a little bit better and are half the price, so even if you just wanna get drunk this is not the best option. From the first taste until the finish there is a really strong flavor of an awful alcohol, worse than medecine. This is the worst destilado de agave I have ever tried! and it's not so cheap, total waste of money.

Why is this so popular when it's so bad compared to real tequila? It's harsh, burns, its rough.

Jose Cuervo "Gold Especial" = especialmente malo o el mismo a "Fools Gold". It is the same as their "Silver Especial" in taste - it is terrible. They add coloring to the fluid and a gold label to the bottle - that is all that is "golden" in this picture! No pride, no skill, no art, not what many would consider a "tequila", a MIXTO at best, but no good.

Awful aroma of alcohol and maybe oak. Palate has more astringency and alcohol with a burn that's unmatched by some of the highest proof whiskey. The only thing that I use this bottle for is cooking, even then there are better.

This was my first introduced to Tequila. It ruined my palate to ever try it again. During a seminar, a salesman held this tequila up and said "NEVER drink this straight! It's for fluffy drinks and it was never intended to be drank straight." Too be honest.... I only use it for cooking.

People, this not tequila! Do not buy this. There are many good valued "real" tequilas.

This one is strictly for margaritas ! Or maybe cigarette lighters. If this is your first don't judge tequila based on this !!

I took this from a friend's bar with the promise to replace it with some real tequila. I didn't pour it out right away, but I should have. I took a sip and once it was in my mouth I couldn't swallow it, so spit it back into the sample glass. The nose isn't appealing, the taste isn't appealing and well you get the idea. Not recommended. Of over 420 tequilas I have rated in the app this is the bottom of the barrel as far as taste and quality.

It smells like sewer water, looks like urine, and tastes like gasoline! I would have rated it lower, but Cuervo "Gold" is probably where most of us lost our Tequila cherry; you just feel obligated... I wouldn't EVER recommend drinking it, but I can't say in the "heat of passion" that I wouldn't drink it again...sometimes we ALL get desperate.
