People have this weird complex when it comes to tequila. When they were in college, they probably took down a ton of Cuervo Gold, and claim to do crazy/awful/amazing things when under the influence of the agave ambrosia. But even though no Mexican would consider Cuervo Gold a tequila (it is not 100 percent agave, like the wonderful Cuervo Tradicional) it's probably not the drink's fault — it's yours for being bad at being responsible. Recently, more and more people have begun to understand that tequila isn't just an intoxicant, but a spirit worthy of a place next to scotch and bourbon. But since you may not know as much about tequila as you do whiskey, you might not know exactly where you start getting diminishing returns. The answer is Cazadores Reposado.
