Jose Cuervo Especial Tequila Reposado is the world's most popular tequila. The 'gold standard' by which others are judged. Cuervo Gold is a smooth tequila, with a slightly sweet-seeming taste. It is a blend of premium and reposado tequilas. The tequila has been rested in oak for a minimum of two months, which gives it its amber hue.
