    I Gave in.....$96 later, my first bottle of Cabo Wabo

    I drove to the province next door and bought a bottle for $96, New Brunswick doesn't even carry the stuff. I'm saving it for the weekend, I've got all the ingredients for every kind of mix. Anyways, before the weekend arrives, provide some input if you please, opinions etc.

    Reposado.

    I'm well aware I was very likely ripped off, but there's no other way to buy it up here.

    Bummer on the Canadian exchange markup.

    For that price, this is ALL you should do (too bad you couldn't find some anejo).

    Chill the bottle, and do shots only. Follow with orange or lime slice, or better yet, mix up a batch of sangria/sangrita and chase the shots with that.

    I don't think the guy can, not with the Canadian mark-up.

    Hmm, never tried it with an orange slice but it sounds damn yummy. Even at 9am.

    Friend of mine was on holiday in the US about 3yrs ago and he brought me a bottle of Anejo back, best damned thing I've ever tasted. But it also pissed me right off knowing that unless I can find someone else holidaying over there then I'm unlikely to taste it again until it finally gets exported to europe!

    As a person ignorant of the exchange rate, I understand that things "cost" more in Canada, but if someting is $45 here and $96Can there; is that really the same thing? Could you exchange $45 into Canadian money and it be $96 so that you're really paying the "same" that we are? I've always wondered that as comic books have two prices on them. I didn't know if it was a true mark up or just the value of our dollar to yours means that it was roughly the same value.

    As for the Cabo, I agree; chilled shots. I've never tried it with the orange slices, so I may go get a bottle and try that tonight.

    Enjoy!
