    Default Do not order CABO WABO at the bar

    I'm telling you these bars are scamming people...the last two times i've ordered shots of cabo i've about been fucked over...
    Two different locations Carbondale, Il and Champaign , IL
    I know the taste of cabo and this shit they serve up is not cabo.
    I watch them pour it from the bottle, but that don't mean shit.
    9 bucks for two shots of Cabo is expensive since actually i think it was the cheap shit. Anyone else notice this....or had this problem??

    Alot of places do that here, well l don't know about cabo, we don't get it here, but places do it with whiskey here, i can last the difference between good whiskey and bad, but they (pubs/clubs) think by the end of the night that people are that drunk they can't tell the differnce, and they are probably right, but it doesn't make it right.

    I might have a glimpse into the problem. Last year, I bought a bottle of Cabo Reposado at a reputable liquor store. It tasted like complete crap...and reminded me of Jose Cuervo it was so bad. The last bottle I bought tasted like it should...just like Cabo. I'd heard that there were a lot of fires in the areas that make tequilas in Mexico a couple of years ago (can't remember the towns) and that it affected the blue agave plants. I wish I could remember where I'd read this. Anyway...I'm assuming that's why I got a bad bottle. I wonder if there are still "bad bottles" of it out there. I'd also gotten a really bad bottle of Patron, so I know it wasn't just limited to Cabo tequila.

    However, it wouldn't surprise me at all if bars try to pass the cheap stuff off to customers. There's such a HUGE difference in taste, though, that I'm surprised they actually think they can get away with this.

    I saw something on CNN recently that was captioned "Tequila Crisis Over", but the song wasn't on and I can't find it on their site (or anywhere else)

    That is EXTREMELY illegal! Even marrying bottles of the SAME liquor is illegal. By marrying I mean taking two bottles that are not full and combining them.
    Bars down here in Fl. have shut down for that.

    Oh there is NO doubt that it does happen. I am just saying that a bar's liquor license could easily get yanked for doing so. Down here we used to have regulators visit on occasion and test our spirit quality. No big deal if you aren't hiding anything.

    You just gotta get your drink on where the tenders know you and treat
    you right. Otherwise, you take your chances just like eating out. I'm just
    glad I've escaped the mini-bottle tyranny of the South.

    while im sure this happens once in a great while, i can tell you that any bar owner/tender worth his salt would NEVER do this. first off, we know that liquors taste different, and second, it is highly illegal. and can result in the loss of your liquor license. that shit wont happen on my watch....drink up!!

    I have had them (many times) "forget" I am drinking top shelf and I call them on it. because I know they are still charging me $6.

    They always are like "oh sorry, I will charge you 2$ for that one"

    and I'm like " no charge me $6 and bring me another drink, it taste like someone pissed in this one" I am assuming this is usually the fault of the waitress.

    It's not just Cabo, though. I have had bartenders try to pass me something different when I order Jose! I know the difference and I call them on it.
