Not much to say, mixto, diffuser, additives, headaches. Not a bad nose, harsh flavoring

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.

I don't think I could even put this in a frozen fruity margarita anymore. Let Jay Leno put it in his gas tank.

What I used to drink before I knew what Tequila was supposed to taste like.

Is it really a tequila? Smells and tastes purely of alcohol. Nothing else in there. I could drink it as a party shot, provided i have already drunk something else before. Do not mix, it will ruin a cocktail.

Copper on the nose. Burnt iron on the palate. Nothing but an unwelcoming pepper on the finish. I went in with an open mind, but went out with essentially the same opinion as everyone else: this is not tequila.

My first tequila. Many shots and hangovers drinking this golden crap. What can I say. I was young, stupid and in college.

Alcohol, acetone on the nose. Thin mouthfeel. Harsh - there is a bit of sweetness buried in there but overall not something worth repeating.

Ah yes, the highschool party FAVOURITE. Cheap, gets the job done, and did I mention cheap? I would drink this again purely for highschool nostalgia and ONLY as shots. It will never make it to a glass bigger than 1oz. Not even mixing worthy.

If you’re on a budget and don’t like tequila, this is for you. It’s cheap and will get you drunk. If those are your requirements then go ahead and grab this tequila. The aroma is terrible, tastes awful and is will burn the whole way down. There is nothing good about this. Absolutely disgusting.

nose: harsh acetone smell with hints of cooked agave taste: Harsh acetone, medicinal flavor almost like drinking fremented alcohol gone wrong. finish: medicinal Simply the worst. (as expected, not 100% tequila) suggest tres agaves for about $21-25

Review #211 - Jose Cuervo Especial Tequila Gold (Mixto)

I come to sampling this strictly out of curiosity of what the world's best selling mixto tastes like.
