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).

I’m not sure if I really know the difference between different types of tequila, as I don’t drink it very often except for the occasional margarita or when I have gone on vacation somewhere. My entire life shopping with my parents and on my own as an adult, that was really the only brand that was considered in my house. Honestly I think all tequila taste similar and not necessarily the liquor that I would choose as my first go to drink. This product is great for the price especially if you make margaritas

I love tequila, and Jose Cuervo is my favorite budget brand. When selecting a bottle, Jose gold would be my bottom shelf choice. I only give it 4 stars because it isn’t as smooth as the silver. This is to be expected though with the price. It is really good when you are short on money, and it still does the job. I also recommend it for larger group margaritas, because it’s cheap and most wont be able to tell that you chose the gold. It still will taste great when mixed into the margarita mix.

Let's face it, tequila is an acquired taste. Many different distilleries, many different styles. This is an above average blanco tequila because of it's ridiculously low price. Like all things discretionary, value is key. Anyone can buy a $100 dollar bottle of wine and know it will be very good. The skill and fun is finding a bottle of wine for $28 that's almost as good as the $100 bottle. It's the same for any alcohol...

What is your go-to tequila? Jose Cuervo is the go-to tequila  in my life... Especially on those adventure nights like  sitting around a campfire chilling with our friends or out riding 4- wheelers ( as the passenger of course.)  It is the STAY CALM and have fun liquor. If you are looking for a smooth liquor but a tiny bite then a little hint of sweetness then Jose Cuervo is for you!! Oh and if you would rather skip the tiny bite, then just take a little suck off a lemon and a tiny lick of salt and whaa la no bite!!

I really enjoy tequila. Josa has lots of sizes and both plastic and glass bottles. I like the plastic for parties in case it gets broken and the glass for my collection of liquor at home so it keeps better. I have purchased it for years. It's a quality liquor for the price point. It mixes well for margaritas or just for shots

Considering it’s supposed to be the Hold brand, this tequila isn’t great. It’s not as cheap as others and it’s taste is even more overwhelming even when mixed with sodas or juices. I wouldnt consider this to be a good tequila for enjoying drinks, but it’s ok for a night of partying without caring what you take shots of.
It’s smooth going down but has a kickback. It’s my favorite in the Jose Cuervo collection. This is my number 2 choice always !! It’s not expensive at all you can get the small bottle for yourself or the bigger bottle to share with a friend and the even bigger bottle to have a big shindig !! Go try it today !!!

Jose Cuervo Especial Gold Tequila is our go-to tequila for making margaritas, tequila sunrises, and other mixed tequila drinks. It is very affordable, but a little rough on the throat when being used to take shots. We typically use a tequila like Patron or Don Julio when we are taking tequlia shots with lime and salt, but recommend Jose Cuervo for affordability when it comes to making more mixed drinks, or at parties with a higher volume of guests.

Not too pricey, always available at all types of different retail and grocery stores. Gold color attracts the eye, square bottle helps store bottle flush against the cabinet and makes it easy to grab and pour, definitely buy it again, good for mixing in other drinks or to use as a single shot
