Armazem Vieira Onix Cachaca

Brazil | Cachaca

Armazem Vieira Onix rum is produced from fresh cane juice which is distilled in a copper pot still and then aged up to 20 years in Aririba wood barrels. The rum is blended using the solera method and then filtered.

The name Armazem Vieira is derived from the 1840s marine warehouse in Florianopolis, an island in Southern Brazil. The location is also home to a art nouveaux bar in addition to the cachaca's aging and bottling facility.

As far as cachaças go, this is a great one. But I'm not a huge fan of the cachaça style, hence the mediocre score.

Smells and tastes of sugarcane, brine, pepper, and wood. A bit on the dry side. One of the best cachaças I've tried, but my favorite cachaça (as of this review) is the Avua Aburana which is about half the price.

This is a 16 year old aged Brazilian "Rum" per the bottle. It is aged in native Brazilian wood made barrels from the Aririba and Grapea Trees.

For a spirit that has different legs forming in the same glass, its no surprise that this comes at you in multiple dimensions. The smallest sip produces incredible flavors. The finish on this lasts forever.

It starts out in the mouth like a very light sugar cane juice, then quickly turned into an incredibly intense quite offensive spice hit, then it takes you on a ride into its finish which produces many complex flavors which ends to me with a note of sweetness. This is a very smooth spirit all around.

Overall, I'm not sure if I would buy this again given its price point. I was not quite floored by this one. If I had one word for this it would be unbalanced. The flavors are all very nice but don't seem to work together. The heavy spice hit is proceeded and then ended with very light subtle flavors. While the finish is long enough and sweet enough at its end to resolve this issue I can't ignore the overly strong note which spoils my unfettered enjoyment. It was not like a bottle of more traditional rum where I would always be going for seconds.
