Review: Kahlua Salted Caramel Liqueur
Don’t think caramel (particularly the salted variety) is still the It Flavor to contend with? Consider Kahlua’s latest limited edition expression: Salted Caramel.
This seasonal release is an extremely sweet one, but that’s not unusual for the brand. It all starts off with intense, brown-to-almost-burnt sugar on the nose. This vanilla-studded, caramel syrup character is gooey and thick, lingering for what seems to be days. The coffee doesn’t kick in until the finish arrives at long last, a heavily sugared dark roast that will have you begging for an espresso, black.
Is it ironic that a Salted Caramel liqueur has caramel color added? I can’t quite decide.

cAN WE PURCHASE THIS PRODUCT IN PENNSYLVANIA? DO NOT SEE IT AT ANY OF THE LIQUOR STORES.
I have seen it seasonally (Fall 2019) in CT. Never seen it in NJ. With PA liquor laws, I doubt you can find it there. Have seen it listed online as available in MA and MD with TotalWine stores as of Jan 2020.
