BRAND: KAH Day of the Dead Tequila
AGAVE SOURCE: LOWLANDS
GENERAL TASTING NOTES:
KAH starts out with a sweet spicy take on a traditional lowlands blanco taste profile. You’ll sniff anise and musty lemon on the nose – then move on to a nicely cooked agave gift on the mid-palate. Though the mouth feel and flavor “footprint” feels a bit thin, in general this is a solid blanco. The reposado brings a lot of alcohol heat with its custom, 110-Proof alcohol kick. Only the repo is over-proofed (the other ages are locked in at the standard 80-proof). To try and balance the high alcohol cloud (and its numbing effects) the KAH repo features a heavily wooded sweet tang . This makes the repo a great cocktail mixer, but a difficult sipper as the alcohol overpowers all other flavors. Use it as a party conversation piece, but make sure to pour it sparingly and only AFTER having tasted the more subtle offerings at your bar. KAH’s real promise is fulfilled in their exquisite anejo. Though the “flavor footprint” remains a bit compressed, there is a lot of interest, complexity and balance offered in this anejo. Strains of vegetal “umami” and mushroom are paired with some dialed-back citrus. This one’s a keeper folks! Guess you’d better buy all three ages of KAH because the bottles are so damned beautiful as a set. SalUd!
