GSN Review: Kah Tequila

tumblr_lwqutdtcPQ1qiedjoMexico has a long tradition of acknowledging that one’s death is inevitable.  Instead of fearing death, they celebrate it each year with a festival called Día de los Muertos.  One of the highlights is being given candy made out of sugar in the shape of a human skull.  Sounds weird, right?  But, not really.  Think about Halloween.  Skulls and candy are a matter of course.

Kah has taken this idea and made it even better.  Each style of their tequila comes in an eye-catching and artistic bottle. All of this reminds me of the proverbial maxim, “eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we die.”  Good enough reason to enjoy some tequila!

Kah Blanco (80 proof)
Visual: Clear.
Nose: Spicy and sweet agave nose with rock candy.
Taste: Very smooth, with light grassy notes and some caramel.  Salty sweet potato flavor is intriguing and tasty.  Creamy mouthfeel.
Finish: There is a lingering salinity and crisp aspect that feels rich and well-rounded.
Overall: Exceptionally creamy and perfect for pairing with traditional Mexican cuisine.
GSN Rating: B+

Kah Reposado (110 proof)
Visual: Very pale gold.
Nose: A lot of alcohol on the nose.  High woody notes with a distinct cinnamon air, tone down the agave.
Taste: Surprisingly woody, with a semi-rye spice-like character.  Fairly intense, but toned down by a sweet, almost milk chocolate flavor towards the end.
Finish: Rich and powerful mouth feel with a lot of chewiness.  This is the Angus beef of tequila.
Overall: Intense and aggressive.  Still, as with the other Kah tequilas, it has a softness to it.  A great tequila for sipping or shots.
GSN Rating: B

Kah Anjeo (80 proof)
Visual: Light gold.
Nose: Fresh agave with tropical fruit accents.
Taste: Super smooth with a lot a rich creamy vanilla and caramel in the forefront.  Definitely an elegant sipper.  Akin to an XO cognac.
Finish: Sweet, fruity and smooth.  Luscious and enveloping.
Overall: Really, really nice.  The kind of tequila to bring out for special friends and occasions.
GSN Rating: A
