Meet my new amigos!
KAH, KAH & KAH.
Blanco, Reposado & Anejo.
All beautifully presented in signature ceramic Mexican Skull vessels – which certainly make them stand out in the crowd.
But how do they taste?
Gorgeously rich black peppery spice nose.
Joyfully mouth coating & gently warming oily palate.
Vegetal agave notes mix with stimulating spice on an engagingly long lasting finish.
Quite a spirity nose.
Only when I got out the magnifying glass did I realise this one’s at a stonking 55%!
Not encountered that before in Tequila!
Sadly – on my palate – the higher ABV gave a mouth blowing experience accentuating the peppery spice at the expense of the more subtle yet alluring agave notes.
Glad to have tried it – but not for me.
Back to a richer, fuller flavoured & rounder drinking experience at 40%.
Less spice, more vegetal agave with a topping of oakiness.
A juicy lip-smacking finish.
As is my personal palate preference – Blanco wins out.
The richness & influence of the agave raw ingredients are at their most pronounced with Blanco.
The 55% Reposado is something unique – but detracted from the warm flavours for me.
Anejo was lovely & complex with barrel ageing – just not engaging enough for my palate.
KAH have produced an extremely attractively packaged trio of tasty tequila.
Many may find them gimmicky – but I think both the Mexican Skulls & the rich agave notes within demonstrate & celebrate the joyfully long heritage of Tequila making.

I just don’t get and I cannot find an answer why Kah distills the Reposado at 55% and 40%?
The small samples that I tried are 40% / 55% / 40% ..
Meanwhile the big bottles of 700ml that I have are all 40%..
Sometimes it’s easier to ask ‘why not?’.
Many whiskeys are offered at higher strength & have a fan base – perhaps KAH followed that route?
Can’t say it worked for me.
Did you enjoy the 55% version?
