    Default Question about Cabo Wabo Tequila

    Anybody know how I can get some of this stuff here in Canada? Can I buy it online or what? Or are there any plans to sell the stuff up here?

    I never did a search to see what liquor chains carry it. I had someone bring me a bottle back from the Cabo Wabo a few weeks ago. Still waiting to try it...

    It's good stuff. I can't wait to get my hands on that Cabo Uno though. The añejo is killer, the Cabo Uno should be outta this world.

    Cabo is just a touch rougher than Patron. It doesn't make sense but I think the cheaper the Cabo, the smoother it is - i.e.: the Silver is the smoothest to me and that's what I'd recommend doing shots with, but the Reposado and the Anejo are better for making 'ritas with.

    Sammy's got a damn good product but I still think Patron's got him beat - just can't find a smoother tequila than that, IMO...

    Well I've got a bottle of the Reposado, so I assume it would be best to make Margaritas with it first (?).

    But I really wanna do a shot...

    LOL! Then, by ALL MEANS NECESSARY, do a shot!
    I'd recommend having a chaser ready, though - nice, cold Mexican brew oughta do the trick.

    The añejo is by far my favorite of the three, hands down. That being said, I have noticed slight differences in smoothness from one bottle to the next even in the same varieties. I would suggest that you use the silver and reposado for shots and margaritas. If you get some of the añejo, go out and get some orange slices sprinkled with some cinnamon on top of them. As you sip/drink the tequila, eat one of the orange slices. This really brings out some of the other flavors in the tequila. I believe it was Van Squalen that suggested that technique and I swear by it now.

    In any event, I hope you enjoy the bottle that you have in the best way you see fit. Here's to it being the first of many more!

    Actually, while I have enjoyed orange slices over lime for some years when drinking premium aged tequilas, it was OneFoot who suggested and added the coup de gras cinnamon sprinkle, a stroke of genius. The anejo is far and away more delicious and smooth than the reposado and blanco in my opinion, always for shots and never mixed drinks, unless, as our Texan Sixstring has shown, you've developed an acquired taste for the white oak snap of less aged blanco...which is certainly fine, tequila shades of taste are all subjective, though I think Texans as well as many of us southwestern cats probably can distinguish tequila degrees better than many...when in Rome, and all that.

    As OneFoot mentioned, the orange brings out a lot more flavor in the tequila than the lime...equally as effective, if you make the effort, is whipping up a batch of sangria and chasing shots of anejo with a well-made sangria chaser. It's really the best way to sample tequila, if you're looking for taste. Most people drink tequila to get Fucked Up, and that's fine, but much like wine, if you want to truly appreciate its delicacy, you gotta do it right. And Sauza and Cuervo are NOT proper tequilas, FYI. You can drink kerosene for the same taste and effect.

    I'm somewhat of a tequila aficionado, have been for years. The only booze I'll touch these days is premium tequila, Sierra Nevada pale ale, and the occasional after dinner Bailey's and coffee. Patron, IMO, is a bit overrated for the price, even its premium vintages. It always seems to have a bit of a silver harsh bite to it, no matter how long it's been aged. Maybe it's just me. I heard Dan Ackroyd, inspired by Sammy's empire, bolstered by his own theme restaurant-bar chain House of Blues, bought up the rights to Canadian Patron.

    I dig Cabo Anejo simply because it's good tequila and there's a Van Halen connection, which I like for obvious reasons. However, I've been known on occasion to sample other premium anejos, including Tres Generacions, Gran Centanario, Don Julio, and Herrada Suprema (at 40 bucks a shot, the latter is not easy to come by, but it's vanilla fucking smooth).

    And hell yeah, the Cabo Uno is going to be real good, I think. I already ordered a case from my connection (I heard unlike the usual six, they're going to come three to a case, only 21k bottles vinted this year).

    Now here is another article that gives another number. If it's only 3 bottles/cs, then we're only looking at 5,400 bottles of the stuff.


    Cabo Uno

    Sammy Hagar’s Cabo Wabo 100% Blue Weber agave tequila brand is moving up with the release of Cabo Uno, an ultra premium tequila aged in oak casks for over three years. “We’ve gone super, super premium with Uno, and honestly, it’s unbelievable, ”said the Red Rocker in a recent interview. Bottled in a lead free crystal decanter and boxed in wood and leather, Uno is set to debut this spring. No word on price yet, but expect it to be about $200 U.S. “All Cabo Wabo tequila is handmade and you can only make so much of it in a certain amount of time. So, instead of industrializing production, I’m maintaining the highest quality possible and introducing limited editions of ultra premium tequila. We’re only going to produce about a 1,800 cases every year with each bottle signed and numbered.” Sammy, we can't wait.

    I heard that too, except it was qualified by three separate releases of the same vintage over a twelve month period to avoid hoarding...i.e., 8k bottles at first, 8k bottles 4 months later, and then 5k bottles in the last quarter. Also I've heard prices ranges at 200, 225, and 250 so far. And I certainly could be wrong about 3 to a case, it could still be 6, it's just what's been rumored. I told my liquor guy if it WAS six to a case, I'd take three, but if pressed, will take all six and sell four of them on ebay.

    In any event, I have no doubt it will be hard to find.
