A good tequila and great presentation at a premium price.
Aroma: Agave and vanilla come through nicely. Maybe a bit of fruit like banana or pear.
Initial Taste: Nice agave sweetness with a fruity compliment.
Body: Medium. The spicy notes come in and start to compliment the agave flavors. The mellowing of the wood makes it really smooth and a nice sipper.
Finish: A nice spicy burn (not alcohol burn) that lingers for a long time on the tongue. A very nice finish to a very nice tequila.
At $50-70 a bottle, it's pricey and there's more that I like that are priced lower, but you can't beat the KAH presentation. The tequila and bottle combo makes it worth the price.
This tequila has a nice aroma of spice, wood from a cigar box, and sweet caramel. The color is close to honey gold. It has a soft entery with minimal heat and slight sweetness. I found flavours of roasted citrus and fruits, vanilla, wood, honey, caramel, toffee, and peppermint. It's very complex and is well balanced. The finish was long and warm with the taste of black pepper and moderate alcohol numbing.
This is a new line of tequila to Canada, so I paid $85 for this bottle.
A delightful nose of caramel, roasted nuts, and toasted agave, with fruity notes of light citrus and maybe some melon. Taste is a rich complexity of many things: agave, wood, earth, some vanilla/caramelliness. Incredibly balanced and impressively flavourful. This beautiful tequila comes through with a big-hearted finish which refuses to be rushed - caramel, toffee, earthy agave, and a medium spice - all of it giving way to a lasting after-finish of agave sweetness and lingering light tickly heat. A wonderful anejo, complex enough for aficionados to appreciate, and accessible enough for novices who are looking to discover how tremendous a tequila can be without being knocked over by bold flavours and big heat. A pleasure to drink, and an absolute must for display on the bar.
Appearance: light gold with greenish highlights; small tears.
Aroma: sweet agave, caramel, banana, brown spice
Initial taste: fairly heated, slightly sweet agave and caramel
Body: soft, becoming hot and developing sharp wood flavors
Finish: wood, pepper, heated, and very long
An excellent and complex drink. You might keep a glass of water nearby to tame the heat. The presentation is pretty special. Excellent value. Amazing how good these artisanal tequilas are getting.
Initial aroma is a sweet blend of wood and caramel, has an initial 'burn' of classic tequila when first ingested but quickly smooths out and delivers a warm and soothing after-taste, leaving you wanting another shot. The bottle virtually sells itself, but the taste doesn't hurt either, have yet to try the other two flavors offered bye KAH, but I'd imagine the Anejo will be hard to beat. Price was right in line with a bottle of Patron, Cabot Wabo or Don Julio, roughly $45-50 bucks. I drank it at room temp first, but you owe it to yourself to try Anejo chilled, either way KAH-Anejo is there to please
