Let me be honest, i love Jose Cuervo Especial, for what it is. However, i dont consider this a tequila, as there is almost no agave presence, and tastes like some sour, bitter and buttery plastic liquid. Oddly enough, im one of the few people who never had one of those nightmare stories of people not remembering the day they decide to have some fun with this and waking up next morning feeling like you wish that you were never born. Jose Cuervo makes some excellent tequilas (1800, JC Tradicional, Gran Centenario, Reserva de la Familia etc.) but this is not one of them (or even close in quality for that matter).
