Proof66 Notes

The mythology behind the liqueur stretches back to 615 AD when coffee beans were first cultivated and first distilled in the Yucatan. Kahlua is made from a base of sugar cane (rum) rather than grain and was first officially produced in 1936 as a part of Allied Domecq but it was the redefined formula from 1962 that is known today. The liqueur was sold to Pernod-Ricard in 2005.

Sweet, tasty, and smooth...but Kamora is better for half the price!

It is a liqueur, it is supposed to be sweet. As a general rule liqueurs are not designed to drink straight, they are mixers and Kahlua is as good as a coffee liqueur gets in this price range.

Too sweet to be enjoyed on its own, but mixes well. Indispensable for making coffee flavored desserts.

I dont see why it would have a low score for a liquor. If you're gonna drink a low alcohol drink like a white russian, it's as good as any.

I enjoy it in white Russians. A little bit pricey, but it's a good product.

I am not sure why but I have always compared kahlua to bailey's in terms of coffee liqueurs. With that said I like Kahlua more than baileys. Dont go into this thinking that this wont be sweet and almost syrupy though. A must try for a coffee fan

Good in coffee, very good in a White Russian with good quality vodka (Tito's being my preference). The comparison below to a reliable chain restaurant is apt.

Kahlua is decent! Nothing spectacular, but it's a good addition to coffee. It's overrated by many people though in my opinion. I prefer it in mochas alongside chocolate flavors.

Full disclosure - I don't think I'd like any coffee liqueur (despite being a heavy black coffee drinker). In short I prefer my coffee flavored liquid to be coffee, not a spirit. That said, I think objectively this is just not that palatable a coffee flavored drink. Tasted against other similarly flavored liqueurs - Kahlua did not come out on top.

Pretty much the industry standard by which others are judged. Yes, there are better ones out there - depending on your personal preferences in particular on what facets of taste/flavor profiles you prefer, but few can beat them on price and none on availability. Like a chain restaurant, it's always there and you know what you are getting every time, and your guests always recognize it - no need to convince them. Also very hard to argue with the price - good quality and by far the low cost option in most cases.

extremely good and particularly popular amongst the ladies. if you're tight on the budget, though, go for Cafe d' Oro....certaintly a good substitute and 25-50 percent cheaper.
