This clear Brazilian rum has a fruity nose that also displays paraffin notes. The body is medium, and the palate bears a peppery quality that interplays well with the almost grape-like fruitiness. Cachaça is a genuine Brazilian beverage produced through the fermentation of pure sugar cane juice. Aged for 1 year in special Brazilian Freijó wood barrels acquiring special taste and bouquet. Established in 1846, Ypióca is the largest estate producer of Cachaça in brazil! Cachaça is the key ingredient in the legendary caipirinha cocktail - the National Drink of Brazil!
Judging by the other expressions from this estate-produced brand, it improves the longer it's aged. In this case, the spirit is aged for one year, yielding a barely perceptible straw color and an earthy, slightly vegetal, slightly sweet scent. The flavor leads with a sweet sugar cane note, but it also has a brisk smokiness, like mescal, on the finish.
