Going to be in Cabo next month - what tequila would one recommend?

Am a total noob when it comes to tequila. Would prefer blanco than the anejo because guessing from this thread, I believe that is the way to go?, and also, want to take it easy rather than get wasted..just have that vacation glow and buzz that is just, right!

Casa Noble seems to be getting a lot of love around here? Just start with that?

This is what I could glean from the thread (in no particular order):
  • Casa Noble
  • Don Julio blanco
  • Don Julio 1942
  • Tequila Ocho
  • 4 Copas blanco
  • 7 Leguas blanco
  • Fortaleza
  • Don Eduardo Anejo
  • El Tosoro
  • Tapatio
  • El Jimador Blanco
  • Patron blanca
  • Partida blanca
  • 1800 Millenium
  • San Matias Orgullo
  • Corzo blanca
  • Cazadores blanca
  • Gran Centanario
  • Milagro
  • Cazcanes Blanco (2018 SF Spirits winner)
  • monte alban (mezcal)
My recommendation is once you get to Cabo, find a good bar with multiple options and ask if they can do a side-by-side tequila tasting with all blancas. That way you can compare the subtalties and discover what you prefer. Most bartenders will enjoy proudly directing you to some of there best. You can learn a lot, have fun and often the bartender will keep pouring tastes for you to enjoy. Salute!

Thank you, Gus! I believe you are a Cabo-regular?, or at least fond of it? - any particular recs for tequila-tasting bars? or Mexican food for that matter?

Good to hear from you - been a while.

We are more Zhijuatanejo regulars than Cabo. I've been there, but not enough to recommend any particular tequila bars. However, if you will be in San Jose del Cabo, I highly recommend a visit to Flora Farms for a meal (lunch or dinner) and cocktails. It is an very enjoyable experience.

My wife and I were in Mexico last week (Half Moon Bay near Akumal) and did exactly this. It is the perfect combination of all my favorite things; namely, spirits, the beach, my wife, and trying new things. Not in that order obviously. I have been drinking tequila for years, and this past week, this method allowed me to identify a couple I had never tried before, but will pick up at home now that I know them..

This was excellent!

We had made reservations as soon as you'd recommended this place.

Once we were in our hotel, everyone recommended we go to Flora Farms - the place is super popular. Their bloody-mary's are on another level!

San Jose Del Cabo was so much more quaint, cozy, and with character than its more commercial-counterpart, Cabo San Lucas.

Thank you for all the recs!

Last June we rented a home overlooking the beach about halfway between Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo. I spent most of my time in San Jose del Cabo for all the reasons you mentioned. I especially enjoyed Flora Farms so I'm glad to hear that you had a similar positive experience. In addition, I enjoyed some very successful sport fishing out of the marina at SJDC. I don't really see any reason why I would ever go to Cabo San Lucas again. Not when I can fly right into SJDC and stay there.

I enjoy both tequila and mezcal on occasion, but we have a horrible selection at home. Picked up this to keep me company on my trip, along with some limes and grapefruit soda for some evening Palomas! So far I'm enjoying up, but anything might taste good after these days...

I remember that being dry with a lot of minerality. They make a rose tequila that is aged in cab franc barrels, if I recall correctly, ladies love it.
