Tasty, but not quite great
Of the three cachacas I've tried, this is good and the least expensive. It's flavorful and reasonably smooth. While I like this on the rocks or in a capairina, my favorite is as a substitute for tequila in a margarita. Try it according to the clasic recipe with equal parts lime juice, Cointreau (or orange curacoa in a pinch) and cachaca instead of tequila.
I picked this up because I saw Fogo de Chao making a Caipirinha and it looked good. My local store had this and another brand. I grabbed the clear and cheaper brand. It's my new go to drink for the Summer heat. Fantastic drink. Over rocks, it is a bit "raw." a bit of a alcohol bite, a bit of an aftertaste to separate it from rum. Got a vacation coming up and I'll give a couple varieties a try in my Caipirinha.
Taste reminding calvados, but overlly it is weak. No strong hint of anything more like vodka. It has no interesting wooden flavour. maybe my worst cachaca so far
This is 1 year aged Cachaca really has a youthful vigor to it. It is not for the faint of heart. I drank this straight up and it has a powerful kick but remains fairly smooth with little burn.
Full flavored cachaca that holds up well in a capairinha, but without that gasoliney character that makes many of the industrial cachacas undrinkable on their own. The aged versions - prata and ouro - are quite interesting and decent sippers.
