KAH Reposado Tequila 55%

KAH Tequila Reposado is an ultra smooth, and ultra high-proof Tequila with a full body, and intense Agave favor. It is aged for ten months in French limousine casks, where it acquires subtle hints of vanilla and caramel.

The KAH Tequila Reposado bottle is painted as « El Diablo ». The use of devil imagery was inspired by Day of the Dead celebrations in Peru. The festival takes place the week before November 5th on the banks of Lake Titicaca, The traditional dances (complete with dangling red crucifixes) are rumored to be led by the devil himself. Traditional dances are dedicated to Satan. This region of Peru is mostly a mining area and workers spend much time underground.

USDA-OrganicKAH Tequila was designed to pay reverence and honor to Mexico and its people. Its bottle and spirit are reflective of Day of the Dead, the 3,000 year-old Meso-American ritual honoring deceased loved ones. KAH’s unique packaging, in turn, is inspired by traditional Calaveras used in Dia de los Muertos rituals to symbolize death and rebirth. The word KAH translates to « life » in the ancient Mayan language. Every bottle is an individual, hand-crafted work of art, not two bottles are the same. While the bottle captures that enduring spirit, so does the Tequila inside, as KAH’s distillers transform hand-selected 100% Blue agave into lively Blanco, Reposado and Añejo varieties that are both certified organic and Kosher.

Notes de dégustation

Aroma : Sweet agave and butterscotch with an evident alcohol, but not as much as you might think for a 110 proof tequila.
Initial taste – Agave sweetness some floral and citrus notes.
Body : A pronounced, but pleasant alcohol burn…again not as much as you might expect with a 55% alcohol spirit. Compliments the sweetness of the caramel and agave really well.
Finish : A great long finish that lingers around pleasantly.

« Moving on to the heavy hitter – the 110-proof (!) reposado, which is aged 10 months in French oak. Now, the nose on this one is predictably strong, so we switched from a brandy snifter to a champagne flute to try to minimize the alcohol aromas and pick up on the more subtle flavors. When we did, we got nice butter, vanilla and cinnamon aromas, and the herbal elements were reduced.
Bracing ourselves for the burn, we took a sip. Surprisingly, this 110-proof juice is just as balanced as the blanco, and has good flavor, unlike many other high-proof tequilas. And the burn, while there is some, spikes and then fades rather quickly. This is a high-proof tequila that you could actually sip for a while, and enjoy. Not a wussy drink, for sure, but why would you want that? (tastetequila.com)
