Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
40% ABV. Great nose. Rubbery mouthfeel! Not bad. 7, 7+?
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.
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.
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.
