I was hesitant about Cabo Wabo tequila, after all what does Sammy Hagar know about making tequila, so I just ordered a shot at a restaurant to try it. Wow, was I surprised. The aroma hit me hard with agave, and the taste and feel came along to support the nose. I was drinking tequila and eating crow at the same time. After a bit of research, I found that Sammy had fallen in love with an artesanal tequila that was out of business by the time he was ready to invest. He took a sample around to a dozen or more small tequilerias to find someone who made or could make something similar. The plan was to serve it in his cantina in Cabo, but he ended up liking it enough to bottle and gain wider distribution. I have not tried the repo or anejo versions, but the silver is great and a good buy in the $35 to $40 range. I plan to buy a bottle soon.

Con mucho gusto, Buzz
