Better than we expected. Recommended.
Notes: Part of the recent Kahlúa line extension other products being the Kahlúa French Vanilla, Kahlúa Hazelnut and the latest Kahlúa and Cream. The original Kahlúa Coffee Liqueur is reviewed here.
First Impression: Coffee notes with sweetness first, followed by the mocha / chocolate notes with the alcohol wrapping around both.The mocha has hints of chocolate, malt and vanilla in the mix.
Appearance: Pleasing bronze/caramel color, dark but not opaque, on swirling leaves a even, somewhat thick coat on the glass with some legs developing.
Taste: Sweet, creamy/oily mouth feel intense coffee, chocolate, vanilla then a lingering pleasant alkali taste, (black pepper?) and a long aftertaste. Only mild alcohol aftertaste, smooth and sweet.
Drinks: We found all of their proprietary recipes to be excellent, and any number of recipes on the web for drinking and cooking. We chose do to try both – including the brownies and milkshakes. We especially liked it in our Toasted Almonds.
Bottle: Dark brown glass bottle (somewhat bullet shaped) that is almost immediately identifiable as Kahlúa with the modifier of mocha near the bottom of the label and a mocha shoulder flash and brown ribbon near the top.
Final Thoughts: A very nice variation of Kahlúa- exceeded our expectations of a line extension. Mocha is a tricky flavor to capture well.
