Aged two years in balsam casks. A little sweeter than it's brethren the Ouro, with a little less woody taste. Quite pleasant as a sipper, comparable to my favorite (so far) Mae de Ouro.

Edit (Feb 2019) - I notice that the last several ratings of this cachaca over the last couple years have been horrible. I can only guess that some change has happened along the lines of the downturn in Zaya rum, which is a shame. I still have a bottle I bought several years ago, and I just revisited it and it still tastes fine to me.

i drink aged sipping rims so this is a little different. Tastes very herbaceous, kinda like grass and sort of bitter/sour. Not bad but not for me I think.

Sweet vegetal taste , herb like smell and quite pleasant to sip and will make a cracking Caipirinha ! The national drink of Brazil.

I enjoy this one from commonly available cachacas the most. It's great all around one, either for Caipirinha or other mixers. Nicely drinkable on the rocks too (but Pratta is better in mixerts and Oura on the rocks). With very nice bottle design it's must have in your alcohol cabinet.

40% ABV. 5yo? Dry, a little spicy, still kinda funky and rubbery. I don't recall if I liked it more or less than the others, so I'll just give it a 7

Firstly, this is a place for rums, so cachaça being here is a bit of a gray area. Yes, the production and distillation processes are similar enough, and true, the source of distillate is sugar cane, but Brazilians (and marketers) are keen to differentiate this spirit from the others for all the human reasons... I'm gonna review this here anyway.

Head-on, this smacks of the grassy, citrusy funk of rhum agricole or Barbancourt in the nose. Not as nuanced in scents as its island rum counterparts, but still in the same ballpark - afterall, the brethren share not only a common source, but also a processing of freshly pressed cane juice. Cachaça always strikes my palate as "warmer" and "flabbier" than the aforementioned rums, a little oilier than those rums and lest zesty, but what's detected here more than anything is the touch of sweetness added to it. It doesn't leave your mouth feeling as though it had just sucked on a lollipop, but hi, there's a little sugar here. All this said, it's great as a caipirinha base and wonderful as a stand-in for French agricoles in drinks that call for it. Oh for shame, say the purists, but this is more affordable and easily discoverable in most places, where as agricoles tend not to be.

If I were to directly compare it to a rum on all these points, it'd be the HSE blanc from Martinique. Versatile and handy, but noteworthy it is not.

C'est bizarre à dire mais c'est celle de mon enfance, celle qu'utilisait ma mère brésilienne pour les Caïpirinha et les Batida de Coco. Je vais être indulgent car je n'ai aucune idée de quoi elle coupe "pur" mais surement pas terrible. Bref, une cachaça pour lancer le carnaval de son village. Une boite de nuit un mardi soir, franchement on peut s'amuser quand même si on est bien entouré et tous déguisés.

Good base for tasty Caipirinhas. Nothing to drink neat, only for mixing, though.

Taste of roasted sugar. It is little bit stronger, but realy good.
