Jose Cuervo Gold Tequila
Advantages: good in margarita's
Disadvantages: burns, tastes horrible on its own, quite expensive
Tequila is something I always have a bottle of at home, and always replace with a new bottle when I run out.
It usually retails for between £16 and £18 depending on where you buy it from, and unfortunatly it is very rarely on any offers or reduced in price.
I usually use tequila to make margarita's with and this is usually the only bottle/type of tequila that is readily available in this county. It tastes lovely in margarita's or when mixed with fruit juices. On its own however I think it tastes simply horrible. It smells so strongly of alcohol that it feels like it might burn the inside of your nose if you smell it too long. The only time I ever drink this on its own is when I am looking to get very merry very quickly, or later on in the night when we're all already drunk and tequila shots or slammers seems like the best idea in the world. Drank on its own it tastes very strong, and very much like pure alcohol - it is impossible to taste any more depth than that. It burns your lips, your tongue, your throat and you can feel it going down your chest and into your stomach burning everything on the way. Why we put ourselves through the pain of licking salt and sucking on a lemon on top of this makes no sense to me now, but as I said - once im drunk it seems like the best and logical thing to do.
Overall I would only suggest buying this to make cocktails or margaritas, its a dangerous drink to have around as it gets me drunk very quickly. I would love to try different types and brands of tequila as im sure there is a nice tasting one somewhere - this one just isnt it. Despite all that however I always have a bottle of it in the house for when I fancy a margarita - thats its only actual good use for me.
Summary: strong burning alcohol drink
