Review: Kahlua Peppermint Mocha Liqueur

The latest entry into the Kahlua family is this limited edition flavor designed for the holidays: Peppermint Mocha.

The named characteristics are authentic: It’s quite minty, with a chocolate undertone. What’s missing is much sense of traditional coffee flavor. It’s mint, then chocolate, the coffee, in that order. In fact, the peppermint pretty handily overpowers everything, relegating the chocolate to the finish and the coffee to, well, to the coffee that you’ll probably be pouring this into when you drink it. Interesting, but once January 1 gets here, don’t expect to get much use from this one.

40 proof.

    I tried this and didn’t really care for it. The after taste is just aweful. I was looking for something else to try other then Irish Cream Liqueur’s. I was looking for a Chocolate and Mint type Liqueur.
