I bought this bottle without knowing who owns it and I probably wouldn't have given it a chance since I'm not a fan of either of those guys. The good news is my naive approach kept my review honest. Nose- faint agave, olive, and black pepper. Taste- peppery alcohol heat, sweet agave, and some lemon. Mouth feel is thin. Finish- short and dry. Value- at $45 in Michigan I can find things I like more for less money but this Blanco is better than others that cost more. Overall this was better than I expected (and likely the best "celebrity owned" tequila I've had) but it's just an average drink in my opinion. Nothing offensive and nothing outstanding.

Reminds me of the Papa Bueno. I think the PB has more citrus than this does.

Not super complex. Has a nice peppery agave smell on the nose. It doesn’t quite translate to the taste. Short dry finish

Cinnamon, agave, and slight melon aromas. Flavor is cooked agave and some minerals. Full bodied mouthfeel with a long dry finish. Not super complex, but not every tequila needs to be.

Herbal, earthy aromas and cinnamon with a nice oily body, cinnamon taste and spice finish. Medium natural sweetness. Not complex but a good sipper.

Blanco= nice mild notes, but slightly bland for me. Overall, clean and enjoyable to sip. The Repo= 82 creamy, easy sipping. This line is non-offending, but simple basic tequila

For a celebrity tequila, this one has teeth. Good cooked agave and citrus notes. Not my favorite blanco but would definitely drink this blanco again

Pretty solid for a celebrity tequila. I got aromas and flavors of agave, citrus, and light cherry. It's a bit more mellow than I would like, and the price isn't too great for the quality you get. But I wouldn't turn down a glass of this.

This tequila is Lite in agave smell and flavor is like is fading away. In taste a little burn but nothing crazy. When I drink a blanco I expect more agave and this one is lacking of it.

A solid tequila. Aroma is full of floral, alcohol, mineral, vegetal, agave, citrus, mint, lime and smoke. Flavor is sweet with a little bitterness, agave and clove. It finish medium heat with nuts, vegetal, mineral and sweetness.

Citrus peel but sweet. Hard to believe there are no addatives? A vanilla cake stands out in the flavors.

Thin and weak (faint) aromas and flavors from start to finish. Not cheap tasting but nothing memorable either. Flavors and aroma increase very slightly upon opening. Would mix with certain recipes but only those where you're not seeking tequila flavor to shine through. Will keep as occasional sipper but probably will never buy again.

I don't pick up much much on the aroma and the flavour had limited complexity and agave. It's a fine inoffensive tequila with out much depth.

Well made Blanco. Agave upfront followed by citrus notes. Price is a little steep when you see compare it to other Blancos. Besides that it’s great.

Had to adjust my my rating. This tequila benefits from some head space and oxygen to tone down the black pepper and turn this into a nice enjoyable sipper.

Purchased on a whim to try something new that I have been skeptical, primarily tried it because it recently became verified additives free so why not. Aroma: initial blast of funk but settles once you air it out Tastes: alcohol burn on the tongue that last throughout the finish. Earthy for lack of better word maybe minerally as well. Some agave and then a bit watery with the finish.

Absolutely overpriced and underwhelming. Like the generic version of Don Julio but misses the mark bad. Has a stale nature about it. Bland.

Earthy and grassy. Little warm going down. Strong alcohol nose. Think I still prefer some aging on my tequila. Blanco not my thing...yet

I never had the original CaboWabo(nor the new) The flavor and the finish are better than the aroma. There is a bit of pepper and nice amount of agave. Smooth and creamy at the end. An easy drinker. You won't be embarrassed to drink or bring this to any occasion. The bottle is a cool/conversation item but never buy teqillas on the bottle. It's just a fun conversation starter amongst friends.

this harkens back to the original Cabo Wabo! I have chased this flavor profile for years since the globocorporate buyout of Sammy's brand! Well done gentlemen, well done!!

Nose is light, with cooked agave, I’m getting a cardamom cookie vibe( it’s just after Christmas so that makes me think about that). Has some weight on palette, feels rich but does finish dry and creates a mouth watering sensation, almost salinity through the finish. I wonder if this was close to what Cabo Wabo once was. I just picture Guy Fieri saying ‘money’ a lot. Not a bad time.

Underwhelmed. A bit more alcohol than I prefer, and a lot less agave. Crisp and clean, but there are less expensive better options. Reminds me a bit of Avion silver.

Oh Hell Yeah !! ! It’s like the original Cabo Wabo because it’s from the same distillery , not the new crap. Smells great, Lots of thick agave, butterscotch, minerally, a good burn . Nice aftertaste . Reminds me of the original Cabo Wabo Cinco Soles era product. Good price point and super cool bottle too . Job well done Sammy & Guy !

Coats the glass nicely meaning it has a nice oily/creamy mouthfeel. cooked agave come through from the beginning with a little heat (pretty smooth) followed by a nixe grassy/herbal with citrus (grapefuit). finish is medium with a nice sweetness and a touch of vanilla. for the $35.99 I paid for it it is worth buying and keeping on the shelf. would make nice cocktails and is a good sipper. not the best.. but not terrible either. pretty solid. I give it a buy rating.
