Flawed with a glimmer of hope
No age, no taste, no quality.
Only if you add tons of sugar, lime and ice goes down to the throat (caipirinha).
I do not recommend.

Hodnocení: Za mě šlápnutí vedle. Bohužel jediné co mě na tomto rumu (jak teď čtu, tak o označení Cachaci jako rumu se vedou spory) zaujalo byla láhev, jinak nic. Prvním varováním byla vůně - rum spíše smrdí (po rostlinkách) než voní. Během pití je dominantou líh - rum se prezentuje hodně alkoholově. Tím zabíjí i tu jedinou nevýraznou chuť, kterou má. Jelikož si na něm nemám co vychutnávat, zbytek láhve nejspíš zředím s colou.
TLDR in english: Not for me, look of the bottle is the only positive. Rum doesnt smell nice, it stinks. Tastes very alcoholical, it has very few flavours which are killed by its alcohol taste. Will drink rest with cola or something, sorry.
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.
