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.

The absolute worst of the worst. Anyone who drinks this is devoid of any intellect or sense of taste

Only slightly better than the blanco. Makes you remember why so many people cringe at the mention of tequila. bring a lime and some salt, and probably a bucket to puke in afterwards

Ah, the bottom of the barrel tequila (unless you consider ElToro tequila) is one that I wish would vanish. I wouldn't even drink it over gin (I hate gin). The fact that most bars in the Northern and Eastern US have this shit at the bar is reason for me to exit the establishment. Remember: friends don't let friends drink bad tequila.

Scary at smell you know this is bad stuff, I don't think this should be considered a tequila. The taste does not give difference in blends just burn and agave taste not the good memory kind either. Finish just burns and burns with an aftertaste to talk about and put away the bottle knowing it was an unfortunate situation to taste it straight.

A distillation of the stench of human failure. This single bottling has done more to ruin the reputation of one of the world’s great spirits than all other putrid offerings combined. If Cuervo were to release a blend that was a dead ringer for Fortaleza at a fifth of the price, I would still refuse to give money to the company that delayed me from enjoying what has become my favorite drink for forty years.

God, I just had to buy a bottle of this stuff just to remind me of the hell I put myself through when I was younger but also to satisfy my curiosity and see if this has improved. This kept me away from Tequila for over 20 years. This is so horrible and it hasn’t improved in anyway. On the nose: smells like bad memories. The taste and finish: hangovers and regrets. For the price, one can buy 100% agave tequila so this is a rip-off. Will not recommend, drink or buy again.

Am adding this because I have had this in the past. The college experience. Puke in a taxi cab and wake up in a field with no pants on. The taste is awful. The aroma makes me hurl. In no way is this tequila. For value it is cheap - but would rather drink mouthwash. This will be my 60th rating -Tequila Connoisseur. Fitting..... Lol. This is not drinkable. And is what people think when they think of tequila. I am making it my mission to chsnge hearts and minds. So far I have changed 2. Lol.

I think we agree, Cuervo Gold is hardly tequila and far from palatable!

The legendary or infamous Tequila that every Tequila drinker has come across at some point in their life. Take a shot only if you are brave or stupid. Not bad in a margarita but not solo.

It seems many here had bad experiences with shots of this stuff. For me, it brings back great memories. I never over did it with tequila. I got my start with Jose Cuervo and I greatly appreciate where I started from. When I first got married over 30 years ago my (still) wife and I would do Friday night shots of Gold after working a full week and always promised to make our weekends 2.5 days long and enjoy every moment. Since then we've graduated to much better tequila and keep around 25 bottles of nice tequilas to enjoy.... No complaints about Jose Cuervo.... Just appreciation!

Like many before & after, we started with shots of Joe Crow, lemon, & salt & gagged it down. We would ask the owner at JGilligan’s in Arlington to let us have 50 cent shots for 5 minutes. My last time to drink this crap was my birthday 1983. I recommend that you stay away, far away from Joe Crow

This stuff is the reason that so many people wince when they find out you enjoy tequila. This bottle has only ever led to a nasty taste, and poor life choices.

What was I thinking? Solvent, wet leaves and varnish on the nose. Astringent, burnt agave and medicinal in the mouth. Peppery, burning, acetone on the finish.

A great tequila to understand bottom shelf disasters. Please help yourself to a better tequila and spend just a few more bucks.

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