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!
Widely used for Caipirinha, maybe that is why Caipi often has bad Reputation?
Bought one bottle once, and it is still well filled after years. It was my first Cachaca, and because I thought it was a reference I sneered at Cachaca in general for a long time.
So: Just use another one, this is the Bacardi of Cachacas!
I prefer Cachaca 51.
With the Olympics going on I thought it would be cool to make some Caipirinhas in honor of it being held in Brazil. The clerk at Specs said this one was his favorite cachaca and boy could I not be more disappointed (with the clerk for recommending and myself for not doing my research first). It has almost no flavor and what flavor it does have is quite harsh. Even the lime juice and sugar was having a hard time cutting through it.
Gasoliney industrial cachaca, almost anything is better. Ypioca is about the same price and much better.
Strong, but chemical cane juice character and little else to offer.
Nose is grassy, a bit rubbery but no spice or fruit that promises anything beyond a chemical bath that at least brought happy memories from experiencing darkroom work.
Unfortunately the palate and aftertaste is pretty much identical apart from a faint, grassy impression of cane juice. A caipirinha based on Pitù needs serious amounts of sugar before any flavours reminiscent of fruit or spice is revealed.
