NOM 1467 from an old 1L Event/Restaurant plastic screwtop bottle. Tastes surprisingly fresh for a 10 year old juice. Nose is agave and green pepper, on the palate lots of viscosity and chewiness from the juice. A dominant bitter note on the tongue lets you know what you're drinking...no added sugars or sweeteners here. Quite dynamic through the finish with some prolonged mid tongue numbing.

NOM 1440 | Some agave but heaps of alcohol and a slightly unpleasant oily finish. I’ll leave this in the “shooter” category.

NOM 1440 The aroma is vegetal with a strong mint alongside. There is also a distinct medicinal under note - rubbing alcohol? Thick, oily mouthfeel with spicy peppermint appearing right upfront. A bit of bitter almond and citrus at the end. Finish gets even more bitter and is medium to long. 9/6/2015

easy nose with hints of pepper foreshadowing the later, stronger taste. heavy pepper with citrus notes with butter in the back. aggressive toward the end with a burn that out lasts the agave sweetness. decent tequila.

Tough to say this is close to the ok’d Cabo Wabo, column still kind of strips the flavor profile. Definite additives. For a cocktail base margarita

I was able to enjoy this blanco, enough to regret never tasting it before. Aroma was basic but good the flavor was slightly complex and no nasty after taste. Definitely currently over priced.

NOM 1426 | this rating is for 1426. this is where my tequila journey began. At a Sammy Hagar & David Lee Roth concert, cheap Beer or something new called Cabo wabo. Boy boy was I hooked on this tequila, went out and bought five bottles the next day and fell in love!!! I have followed Cabo wabo through all the different distilleries currently this new generation of Cabo wabo was the worst. once again I have to think Sammy Hagar and Cabo wabo from my new long-lasting long tasting addiction to tequila.

Cabo Wabo is a best when mixing and not sipping, however it can be a sipped enjoyable. On the nose: Agave, floral notes, pepper and subtle smoke. A bit of alcohol, but the intensity depends upon your glass. A beautiful nose with very faint hints of butter, mint, and vanilla. On the palate: Nice oily or buttery mouthfeel. Pepper, minerality and smoke up front. Nothing on the palate quite stands out. On the finish: A long finish. Immediately you get roasted cashue nuts and light peper and smoke. The nut fades leaving smooth minerality and pepper. Overall, a nice blanco that is deserving of a lower price point. My knock on Cabk Wabo is th price and the one dimensional palate. Otherwise, not bad.

Aroma: barely smells of cactus, no real citrus or veg or anything else. Flavor: mostly just the heat of alcohol, no terribly discernable cactus or anything. bland. Finish: barely a finish. slight hint of cactus for a moment after you swallow.

Aroma: Faint Agave. Tiny hint of vegetal. Flavor: Very mild. Agave and Citrus. Tiny bit of heat. Finish: Actually ok on this. For what it is, it lasts a bit.

Love having this around to splash in Bloody Mary mix or anything else at a whim and as a general swigger from time to time when I walk by my liquor cabinet and it catches my eye waving and winking at me. Very bearable flavor, not a bouquet of balanced traits but not medicinal or cheap tasting either. Perfect for its price point and is exactly what it should be meeting expectations for price and name and never falls short or into cheap brand territory. Old reliable!

Review #239 - Cabo Wabo Tequila Blanco

A widely available brand that is all over the place in terms of how it's reviewed. I'm suprised it took me this long to taste it, but I guess I never felt an urgency.
