The Tanager has a nose of apricot fruit leather, so that's cool! Unfortunately the taste does not follow at all, just coming across like very green, woody bananas. It's smooth enough in the mouth, but there's a definite burn afterward, which is never fun.

I think the “4” rating fits this perfectly - flawed with a glimmer of hope.

Now, I have never tasted a rum aged in wood other than oak (this spent some time in a Zebra-wood cask!). Its definitely different... the color is unlike any rum I have ever seen (dark mahogany red). There is noticeable sedimentation on the bottom of the bottle (my guess the Zebra-wood is high in tannins) and they either had very limited filtration, or none whatsoever.

It has the familiar cachaca smell - pungent green, vegetal, olives... but this fades to stranger, more unrecognizable smells of tropical spices. The taste reveals a strong influence from the zebra-wood - a significant spiciness, with a tongue-clinging flavor that reminds me of cinnamon and clove. Your tongue is left numb for maybe 5-10 mins afterwards!

Weird... I like it!

Muddy color and mild aftertaste. Wouldn't drink often but worth an occasional sip.

Great grassy notes with some real wood bitterness to it. Had it neat, in a caipirinha and an old fashioned. As soon as ice hits it it goes a very strange colour almost like a caramel milk. You taste with your eyes as well as your nose and tongue and it was very off putting. Glad I tried it, was slightly disappointed and finished the bottle of in quite a few batidas. Wouldn’t buy again

First aged cachaça I've ever tasted, therefore I'm not sure if aged cachaça is not for me, or that this perticular spirit just doesn't cut it for me.
