Serious improvement needed
This Cachaca is fairly common in the US. Its really decent actually. It has a nice pungent fruity, floral aroma. The tasting is similar, its smooth on the palate with a nice classic taste, while not complex it does offer a great experience.
It smells like Cachaca, which might be an acquired taste for some. The flavor definitely surprised me though... Very mild and clean, almost like they were trying to make vodka, but some of the funk got through. Its not entirely bad, though I tend to treat it like a weird vodka, with very faint vegetal and mineral notes. For very mild Caipirinhas.
N: Vegetal funkiness
P: Gasoline and poprocks.
I didn't think this stuff was too bad. Absolutely not for sipping, but that's not what cachaca's for! It's for producing en masse and for upping your tropical drink game. If I had to guess, I think a lot of people hate this because it combines the raw veggi-ness of cachaca with a funk reminiscent of Jamaican rum. As such, if you're not ready for it, this stuff will slap you in the face. Hard. If you're open minded though, it makes a rather spunky caipirinha!
Wasn’t wowwed by it. Had it in caipirinhas and to be honest I absolutely smashed through the bottle though. If someone bought me a bottle I’d be happy. But plenty more to try before I’d buy that again
I’ve been told by a native that cachaca does get sipped in Brazil. Just not this one which apparently costs just a few bucks down there. Certainly nothing subtle about the taste of this. Didn’t hate it though.
Made from freshly pressed sugar cane and it's rest in a wooden vat for several weeks before fermentation. Seems like it went through an organic fermentation before its actually fermented.
Vegetal and grassy in the glass with burnt tobacco and citrus notes of grapefruit peel.
It's dry and ashy/ smoky. Slightly green where manage to taste the raw alcohol, fresh basil and crushed pink peppercorn.
Peppery finishing with tobacco leafs and citrus peel.
Finishing wasn't up to expectation where it ended as soon as it's being consume and only left with ashy notes. Nevertheless, it's good product to mix in Caipirinha where its less leathery.
This has notes of earthy dryness akin to a rhum agricole, but also has harsh gasoline notes that come through loud and clear neat. Mixed its palatable and does an okay job.
