This is my first review on this page. I had avoided Cabo Wabo for a long time because of its initial over the top marketing and celebrity association. However, I finally tried it and was very impressed.
Aroma:very sweet with vanilla notes, maybe mild citrus in the background
Taste: mildly oil, sweet, pepper at the back the the throat but generally smooth.
Good affordability and easy to find. Standard for my home bar.
I've seen a mixed bag on this one. Some people love it some people hate it. Only one way to find out...
Aroma: Light Agave with vanilla and a bit of alcohol.
Initial Taste: Agave vanilla and a bit of citrus. A very nice entry.
Body: Light body for an anejo. Nice mixture of vanilla, agave and fruit. A slight bit of oak compliments it as well.
Finish: A very basic finish. Short duration, no spice linger...just a basic feeling and taste on the tongue of the previously mentioned flavors. Pleasant, but not noteworthy.
The start is better than the finish. The flavors are complex and taste very good. The finish left something to be desired. As far as tequilas that you'll find in every store go...this one is pretty darn good. It's not on the top shelf, but it's something that you can happily and proudly serves guests as a dessert tequila, straight or mixed. A nice well rounded effort.
Tasted on 12/26/08 out of a snifter. I had been wanting to try this anejo for some time now to round out the entire line. In my opinion, I think Cabo Wabo anejo is their best offering. So while I wont be running out to get a bottle of this for home, Id be happy sipping it at a bar.
Aroma: A light nose of vanilla.
Initial Taste: A semi oily mouth feel, it was sweet upon entry, with a slight bitterness. Initial taste was vanilla.
Body: Actually a pretty decent body of agave, cinnamon, vanilla, and earth.
Finish: A semi heated finish of short duration with a lingering of vanilla.
