KAH Reposado Tequila (700ml)
Although 'KAH' means "Life" in Mayan, the striking packaging for these tequilas is inspired by a 3000 year old Mexican celebration known as the Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos). A death/rebirth festival, it honors deceased loved ones. The bottles containing KAH tequila reference traditional Calaveras (skulls made from sugar) used in Dia de los Muertos rituals of centuries gone by. Like Northern European 'vanitas' paintings, the symbolism reminds one of mortality, and doing so encourages us to celebrate life (with KAH Tequila in-hand, of course!) But while the brand has attracted a lot of attention for its Day of the Dead presentation, what's the tequila itself like? Thankfully the gimmick is only skin deep. Reviews have been favourable. We look forward to tasting these tequilas soon!
Other reviews... Aromas of praline, toasted pineapple-coconut pastry, leather, and peppered figs with a satiny fruity-yet-dry medium-full body and a tingling pepper, Coleman fuel and candied spiced nut finish. Intensely zesty and muy macho in style. International Review of Spirits Award: Gold Medal
