Review: I don't get the negativity about the Cuervo range and the Especial Gold in particular. This is a fine, smooth tequila to my palate and at the price, is very good value for money.

Review: If you like drinking spirits properly, this tequila is not for you. It is just about passable for slammers and cocktails with enough other flavours in them to hide this one.

If you want to actually enjoy drinking tequila, get a 100% agave bottle. All the cheap ones available here (including the Ocho line, which is cheaper than this) are considerably more enjoyable, and don't ruin margaritas. Or give you a raging hangover. Hell, even the Sauza mixtos are better.

The problem with Cuervo Gold is that it has this sort of 'dirty' flavour in it from the additives that cuts through everything, and a chemically finish to boot. It isn't pleasant, hence why it's usually taken with lime and salt as a slammer. This bottle is almost entirely responsible for the bad rep that tequila as a spirit has. It will also give you horrific hangovers.

These days, even money isn't an excuse to buy this bottle.

Review: Acquired taste with earthy tones and a very strong and distinctive flavour. Ideal mixed with grapefruit juice as a "Conquistador" or simply as a shot.

Review: Aaron Zall has a good point, this isn't really worth the effort, just like most of the Cuervo range.
This Tequila is very harsh, its not much milder than a cheap vodka with a flavour.
So, my advice for a cheap gold Tequila is the XXX Siglo Treinta, its a good price and not too bad, kind of expected as its made by the same people who make the Casa Noble tequilas (www.tequilacofradia.com).

Review: This is an excellent cheap Tequila that goes well in shots or neat. Unless you enjoy drinking on your own like the person reviewing below me seems to, or are on a higher budget stick to this. Why pay more for a higher priced Tequila when everyone else will drink it all?

Review: Cuervo Gold, is a bog standard mixto tequila.
Its only 51% Agave so its the bare minimum that can actually be called tequila under Mexican law.
The 'Gold' colour incidentally is from added colouring not from aging like a 'proper' Anejo, or high-end Resposito.
That for me is what cheapens the whole affair, your paying aged spirit prices for an imitation.
This is OK for shooting if you like that sort of thing, but in all honesty for shots you might as well use Cuervo Classico or Sierra, - harsh.
If you actually want something worth drinking, pay the extra and go for one of the 100% agave tequilas, the difference is monumental, the Gran Centenario range is particularly good.

Producer Information

Jose Cuervo owns the largest holdings of agave in the world, nestled in rich, volcanic soil. Caretakers, called 'Jimadores', cultivate and harvest the agave. Jose Cuervo plants the agave shoots between February and July to avoid the months of excessive rain. The shoots, on average, take seven years to reach maturity.
Once the agave has been harvested and pruned, the agave's cores or 'pinas' are sent to La Rojena. Each day the agave oven deck receives from 200 to 300 tons of agave for the production of tequila. The cooking of the pinas refines the taste of the tequila. Even today, this process is carried out completely in the artisanal tradition, requiring 36 to 40 hours. Eight hours after cooking, the pinas are taken to four mills for grinding. The first one is known as the shredding machine: its multiple blades shred the agave into small pieces. The chunks are then ready for the second wheel, which smashes the pieces to extract the juice. The next two are extraction wheels, where the juice, known as must, is separated from the bagasse.
The resulting must is sent to the fermentation tanks. After 50 to 60 hours, the juice is now completely fermented. The next steps - distillation, condensation, and rectification - produce a drinkable product known as white tequila.
The tequila is reposed and aged slowly in barrels; during this time it acquires the gustatory and aromatic features of wood.The toasting of the barrels is the key to their aromatic yield. There are three degrees of toasting: light, medium and strong; each determines a different tequila profile. The barrels are also lightly sprayed with water so that the wood absorbs humidity to prevent evaporation of the tequila aging inside it.
