Flawed with a glimmer of hope
Cheap, good tasting cachaca with only one downside: The smell. Maybe I got a bad bottle, but my wife couldn't drink the caipirinha I made with this (it's normally her favorite cocktail) and I had to really struggle to finish mine. The penetrating alcohol smell is so strong, it even seeps into the cocktail. It could be better in a cocktail with more liquid ingredients, like a batida, but I don't have the patience to test it because there are better cachacas out there which cost just a little more.
It's not a bad product for the really fair prize but it's not good either. It's both too thin and too alcoholic tasting at the same time. But at around 13€ for a one litre bottle beggars can't be choosers.
usually in Germany you get Pitu when ordering a Caipirinha. So usually one sould avoid this cocktail. The Barreiro is also common. If this one's offered then go for the Caipirinha!
This is a very bad industrial cachaça.
I do not recommend even for a mix.
Sampled this during a tasting seminar at Cardiff Rum Festival last weekend.
It's fresh and light but Cachaca isn't for everyone.
Byl mi prodám jako rum a až později jsem zjistil, že to vlastně ani technicky rum není, vůně nevýrazná, chuť neurazí ale ani nenadchne.
Rich fresh sweet taste in this cachaca, together with reasonable price tag, makes this one almost unbeatable binge drinking Caipirinha master. If you need great Caipirinha mixer, this is your guy.
Please disregard the reviewer who says rum is only made from molasses, there are many rums made from sugar cane. This is of course a cachaca, sometimes called Brazilian rum, and is somewhat difrerent from most agricole (cane juice) rums.
This is an industrail cachaca intended mostly for making drinks such as Caiparinhas. At about the same price as Pitu it is much better, and probably somewhat better than Ypioca crystal which had been my go-to mixing Cachaca.
