Cool bottle. This HP (110) reposado actually has a nice nose with hints of cooked agave, oak & caramel. The taste is full of vanilla and caramel. The finish is flavorful and long. Salud!

Tasted blind. Aroma: an odd combination of grass, agave, and candy. Flavor; Hot cinnamon, pepper, alcohol, baked agave with a candy sweetness. Medium to thick body with a long aggressive finish. Flavors compete with each other with a rather unpleasant result.

Revisited this as my palate has changed in the 4 years since posting. Still hot initially but it opens up as it sits for 10-15 minutes. Nose is less acrid in Romeo's jarrito for high proof than the Riedel O Stemless Spirit glass. Small sips are called for here. After a couple the mouth is better acclimated to the ethanol at 55%. Some barrel elements of oak and spice are there on entry as well as agave, the high proof takes over and quickly leads to a numbing finish that is quite long. Fading pepper and some slight oak as well as slight sweetness. The bottle is an original glass, hand painted skull from Elements Spirits 2009.

In my opinion the 110 proof Repo is the only KAH to drink.

Harsh and spicy due to 55% alcohol!...Luckily, hints of vanilla, chocolate and caramel make it bearable. Kept the skull bottle for on top of my piano !

Immediate sweet aroma that strikes me as pineapple (???). That single aroma overwhelms nearly everything else but after a few minutes there are slight hints of agave and more traditional barrel aromas. The higher proof is more pronounced/noticeable in the reposado than the Ultimos Dias blanco...like a mouthful of fire at the start that settles into a pleasant but hot cinnamon/peppermint flavor. The finish is surprisingly short for such an big start. Fun but definitely not something you would sip for an evening or even for a few hours.

Caramel, vanilla and alcohol nose. Nice viscous mouth feel with strong alcohol fumes. The spice/pepper/fire starts early and lasts long. Fun stuff if you're in the right mood.

Smells a bit of alcohol but slightly sweet. Tastes strong of alcohol but has a nice sweet finish. Not bad for 110 proof. Pretty smooth.

Aroma; cooked agave, pepper, vanilla, earth, butterscotch, spearmint and strong alcohol content. Flavor/palate; agave, alcohol, vanilla, caramel, yeast, earth, flowers and citrus. Good tequila and maybe a sipper here and there, but not a favorite. Finish is short with strong alcohol content. You pay for the bottle design on the price.

Aromas of alcohol, pepper, cooked agave, slight tail runnings funk, slight vanilla sweetness. Slight buttery slickness on tongue. pepper heavy flavor mid mouth. Slight alcohol bite and warmth in chest. peppery but appropriate finish.

Can't find it anymore. I hear rumors that they've been shut down. Normally a Anejo/extra Anejo drinker, but thoroughly enjoyed this reposado

Pleasant nose, hints of cinnamon and caramel. At 110%, this certainly packs a punch! Fiery flavor with remnants of the cinnamon and caramel, this is a unique item to keep in stock - Love it.

I found 2 of the original hand painted KAH ceramic reposados. These are pretty rare these days, the more common is a glass version with a wrap on it. These hand painted ceramics are really a work of art and a definite if you collect. This rep comes in hot at 55ABV, 100% so be prepared before go into it. On the nose is pepper, caramel, and cooked agave. The 110% alcohol hits fast and hard so let it sit for a moment on the tongue. Wait for the second sip for the flavor to come out . the body is full of pepper, caramel, agave, vanilla, oak and I get a little butterscotch and anise as well. It has a long and flavor-able finish. It’s a Hard hitting, high-proof tequila that I enjoyed probably more than most. It’s not Tapatio 110, but the bottle is cool, the juice is impactful, so worth the buy.

solid repasado, higher proof and has a bite to prove it...in a good way though

Sweet butterscotch and prominent alcohol on the nose. Overwhelming alcohol and unpleasant burn covers up most of the flavor. Some butterscotch and some cooked agave. Hard to find much else amidst the fire. Finish is medium-long and slightly complex with some oak and charcoal. Very high price for a tequila that is barely drinkable due to overwhelming alcohol.

Smooth and flavorful, light pepper and oak. Too bad this is now called Sangre De Vida and made elsewhere because it was much better as Kah. Do yourself a favor and look for the Kah that's left on the market still.

Bold, thick, and intense! My first high-proof tequila caught me off guard - forgot about this little fact when I ordered, but was quickly reminded when my first sip slapped me in the face. Strong smells of grass, citrus, and alcohol (not surprising). What did surprise me was the sweet taste - perhaps from the barrel aging. I mostly enjoyed the peppery and earthy agave finish. It could be that the aroma and taste were a bit too overwhelming to enjoy. Obviously the bottle is awesome, but the price keeps me from buying one for myself. This tasting was part of a tequila flight at a bar.

Kah tequila has gotten a lot of attention for its seriously cool skull-shaped Day of the Dead bottles, but what about the juice?
