Tasty, but not quite great
This tastes somewhat similar to an Agricole rhum, though not quite as refined as the ones I have tried. Two years in Freijo wood casks give some interesting funky smoky flavor to this as well as take away the industrial edge.
Wow, this stuff is hard to explain, tequila comes to mind that has rested in the bottom of a water basin for Maaaaaaaabe just a weeee bit to long laddy. A mite on the harsh side and with me distinguished palate i would have not thought it to be RUM. If this is what i had to drink regarding rum i would probably switch to
The one that started it all for me. The old stand-by. Old faithful.
The peanut butter to my jelly. The Frick to my Frack. The ham to my burger.
It's all there: the wood, the earth, the grass, the smoke... all wrapped in an origin story that surpasses anything in the MCU.
And as for the wooden cup next to it... what is understood does not need to be explained.
Had a rum tasting on a sunny afternoon, because why not. Ypioca Ouro Cachaça bottle and label design looks spectacular! Strong alcohol, plenty of smokiness and artificial flavors abound coming through to the nose and palate. Strong burn at the end, so better to mix it up with plenty of lime and Demerara sugar.
I love the packaging of this product with gives it a point straight of the back. I mean, it's fucken wrapped in palm leaves leaving this nice hexagon pattern across the bottle. To be fair tho, this rum is pretty bad on its own, but Brazilian rums arn't my style because of the overdone peatiness and earthiness they leave behind. However, if you throw some lime-aid in a glass with this rum it is the perfect balance, for the acidity of the lime aid helps mellow out the overpowering earthy flavors.
Also, for $25 a liter it isn't a bad by at all for a mixing rum to stay on the bar.
Mieux que la blanche mais pas à se taper le cul sur les sièges du Maracana quand même. C'est quand même sympa et ca change, de quoi faire plaisir à un copain qui se contentait de la même bouteille depuis 10 ans. Quand elle est la je la bois avec un plaisir simple. Une mousse de canard : mieux que du pâté mais personne ne compare au foie gras.
Jolie bouteille acheté lors d'un passage au Brésil.
La version "ouro" a été vieillie 2 ans en fût d'un bois local.
Design : très belle bouteille avec du jonc tressé, la cachaça est légèrement dorée.
Nez : fruits rouges, végétal.
Bouche : attaque douce, alcool puis boisé fumé avec une finale amère.
Moins gouteux que le rhum blanc agricole, et assez neutre, cet alcool passe bien en mix.
Nice earthy and grassy representation of Brazilian rum. Awesome as the main ingredient in caipirinha's but doesn't disappoint when sipped neat either.
The jury's still out for me and Cachacas. Initially I liked the flavor, but more I drank, the less I liked. Willing to try others though to see whether it is the brand or the type of rum.
