A decent tequila that everyone seems to have tried. It's better than many of the more well known tequilas, but far from the best that are out there in a similar price range.
Aroma: Light scent of agave, vanilla and pepper.
Initial Taste: Pleasant agave sweetness and hints of spice.
Body: Thin body. Agave, Wood, pepper and mint notes come through.
Finish: Short finish with pepper linger. The finish might be the best part. I wish it has lasted longer.
The bottle is mediocre. The tequila is mediocre. I wouldn't tell people not to get it as too many people think that tequila is a crappy mixto. This is at least known to them and would blow those out of the water. However, for $40ish, I could name 15 reposado tequilas off the top of my head that are the same price or cheaper that are better.
I had this one in late July 09 and it was good and I think it would have made a good margarita. It however was not the best straight. The color was ok and the smell was good, the taste was quick and simple but lacked full body.
Cabo Wabo Reposado NOM 1467 Tasted 3/2/07. With a yellow golden color, Cabo Wabo Reposado has intense aromas of earthy and floral scents. Less apparent are mild smoke and spice aromas with a hint of caramel and vanilla. Upon initial taste, the tequila has an oily mouth feel and is soft and mellow on the tip of the tongue. Intense flavors of floral, fruit, and earth accents are followed by moderate agave and spice flavors. The finish consists of a hot tingly alcohol intensity and a medium duration of flavor. I rate this tequila at the B range.
I like Tequila alot. Actually there are 2-3 drinks that I like and Tequila is one of them. (Whiskey is another one and XO I'll have on occasion) So.. unlike other Tequila-Nerds who talk about nose and body I as an average consumer can say that Cabo is a good drink and if you are in a position that you have to chose and drink and there are choices- Cabo is a good choice. It's not the best but very good. I bought it for $50 in Canada from a friend but it actually cost $80 in LCBO in Ontario. Even $50 I think is an over price but hey you can't always get it for nothing so my verdict is good, good but too much money
