Cabo Wabo añejo tequila (old) tequila is aged in wooden barrels (usually bourbon barrels) for a legal minimum of one year. Best quality añejos are 18 months to 3 years for mixtos, and up to 4 years for 100% agaves. It is generally agreed that tequilas aged over 4 or 5 years lose their sweet agave character, and begin to take on the characteristics of whisky.
With age comes wisdom — and more rich taste. After maturing in American oak barrels for at least 14 months, Cabo Añejo becomes even bolder with flavor. You can mix it if you want, but this old dog doesn’t need to learn any new tricks. It’s best enjoyed neat or on the rocks.
