Newly Discovered Bottles of Cabo Wabo Single-Barrel from 2007!!!!
This all started several weeks ago while I was at a liquor store near my home in Houston. I was scanning the shelves looking for something I hadn't ever tried or could add to my tequila collection. As I looked up, I spotted a bottle of Cabo Wabo Reposado that appeared different. It had a neck tag with a barrel number, bottle number and bottled date. I'm not a tequila expert but I've read stories about the famed barrel #100-18 from 2006 and those rare bottles of single-barrel you see for sale on eBay. Since I wasn't sure what this was, I decided to buy it. I posted a blog on Tequila.net but received no response, then again I didn't include any photos or much of a description. I then contacted several known experts in the tequila collecting world. They believe this bottle may have come from Sammy Hagar's private reserve at the Impulsora Rombo distillery or Wilson Daniels importers. It's thought that one or possibly all forty cases from this barrel #100-30 were accidently (or purposely) put into the distribution chain and ultimately sold at liquor stores around the country. Once I heard that theory, I immediately returned to the store for another look. I soon discovered a second bottle inside a 'normal' looking reposado box. I now have two rare bottles of 2007 Cabo Wabo Single-Barrel Reposado sitting on my bar!!! If anyone has additional information that would shine more light on this new discovery, I would be grateful.
