Cabo Wabo Tequila was brought to life in 1996 on the back roads of Guadalajara -el centro of the state of Jalisco, Mexico. After what seemed like eons of time searching for a tequila of good enough quality to serve at the Cantina and call his own, Sammy Hagar linked with a small Mexican Tequila maker that had been in operation since 1937. Although some of the players have changed since the birth and rise of Cabo Wabo Tequila, it continues to be grown and hand made by a well-established tequila family with deep roots in the tequila fields of Jalisco. The blend of geography and human touch are unique to this region, and essential to tequila. Cabo Wabo Tequila maintains its smooth, no after-burn flavor by sustaining its respect of the long-standing tequila traditions that made it the drink of choice of the wise and venerated mystics. We do not cut corners like other brands which legally mix up to 49% of fillers and still call their product "tequila" - Cabo Wabo Tequila is nothing less than 100% pure blue weber agave. Join the real, pure trip - drink Cabo Wabo Tequila and party as well as the mystics of the days of yore!
Wine EnthusiastBouquet offers aromas of salty brine, fennel and green peppercorn; in time, a dried-sage aroma takes command, with assistance from burnt match and metallic notes of lead, rust, nickel. Palate entry is vegetal-herbal, but semisweet and oily; the midpalate is sweet, buttery, fatty and intensely peppery. - Paul (5/1/2004) - 90-95: Superb/Highly Recommended
