Cabo Wabo Tequila Blanco
Recommended By: Brian West, Alcoholmanac Magazine
When Sammy Hagar set out to make a world class tequila, I’m not sure anyone expected him to succeed at the level he did with Cabo Wabo. Originally made for Sammy’s cantina in Cabo San Lucas, it has taken the world by storm with its exceptional quality, expertly combining boldness and complexity with easy-drinking smoothness.
The Cabo Wabo blanco is exceptionally fragrant, emitting a bouquet of fresh earth, salty minerality, melon sweetness, subtle fermented vegetables (like sauerkraut or kimchi) and black and green pepper. At first sip, Cabo blanco’s big, smooth, almost oily mouthfeel strikes hard with big black pepper that develops into an almost ancho chili flavor. This pepper is balanced by light grassy tones, an almost asparagus note, and pronounced sweet roasted agave. Cabo blanco finishes mild, but its flavors linger. As the pepper fades, some of the more roasty vegetable characters comes out. This is an iconic example of a good Lowland tequila.
