Originating in Mexico, Kahlúa has become the number one selling coffee liqueur in the world. Since 1936 Kahlúa stands for a rich heritage, full of diversity and color; something truly unique.
Well-sweetened coffee, but also offers notes of raw alcohol, driven by what must be a very young rum.
Shows off fruity coffee notes, some dried figs and prunes, and a finish of roasted walnuts.
Kahlua is quite sweet, particularly as the finish arrives, which has a bit of a Port-like, fortified-wine character to it.
The oiliness that’s left on the palate as it fades away is a reminder more of the rum and the sugar in the mix, rather than anything to do with the coffee component.
