Sagatiba
Preciosa Cachaça
Medium amber color. Complex, spicy aromas and flavors of cherry pipe tobacco and white ash, honeyed fruit cake and fig bread, cedar cigar box, and spiced bananas and mango with a satiny, vibrant, fruity medium-to-full body and a warming, complex, very long roasted nuts and banana leaves, vanilla cola, sassafras and mint, exotic tropical fruit chutney, and leather and polished wood finish. A superb sipping cachaça that will be fantastic with cigars.

Sagatiba
Envelhecida Cachaça
Medium golden yellow color. Tropical aromas and flavors of caramelized bananas, toasted meringue, chestnut nougat, and nut oil with a satiny, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, complex, long cane stalk and tobacco leaves, delicate spices, pepper, and minerals finish. An elegant and vibrant aged cachaça with great flavor, finesse, and versatility.
