Tasty, but not quite great
Nice cachaca , sweet , fruity , grassy aroma. Slightly earthy taste with a gentle burn. Makes great caipirinhas... or maybe its my Brazilian son-in law making them properly ?
I drink a fair amount of rum and have tried most of the mainstream highly rated ones on here, I usually find them too sweet.
I also drink a lot of cachaca, Ive tried several but this is one of the better ones, Ideally in a caipirinha but also sometimes neat with or without ice or a squeeze of lime.
Hell I even mix it with beer, and a squeeze of lime.
I like the character coming through whatever drink you choose to add it to.
Its unique but if I had to describe it it would be something like havana 3 (but less sweet) wray and nephew ( but less strong) and tequila (but less
I also like the bottle !
The first taste did not win me over. Ethanol stink and wet dirt. But after a time I found that this syrupy sauce had a flavour I fancied. It’s smooth, meaty mid range was just the ticket compared to the scooped out fizz of most white rums. I quite like adding a touch to daiquiris and papa dobles. Plays nice with pretty much everything really.
I even enjoy a drop with ice.
One of my friends from Brazil introduced me to this flavorful spirit a while back and was glad he did. Nice earthy, grassy and woody undertones. Very nice in Caipirinha's!
The alcohol dissipates quickly, leaving you with a nose full of bananas, spice, and even a little vanilla. The flavor is really nice...more bananas, some creamy fruit, and some earthy/grassy undertones as well. I like this very much. It's a clean, fresh change of pace when you need to clear your palate after guzzling molasses-based rums for too long...
It´s an ok cachaca for the masses, makes ok caipirinhas but it´s not great, there are about 5000 cachacas in Brazil and only very few is exported. I have tasted some real good stuff which unf doesn`t some out of Brazil too easily.
