Date Tasted:
Country: Brazil
Alcohol: 39%
Bright amber color. Inviting aromas and flavors of brandied cherries, tangerine, dried banana, vanilla, espresso bean, zucchini blossom, and jasmine with a velvety, vibrant, fruity medium body and a polished, subtle, long finish with touches of milk chocolate, buttercream, tobacco, black olives, and leather finish. Alluring cherry-vanilla aromas open up to a slightly savory palate filled with bourbon-like character balanced with savory nuance; a smooth and dreamy aged cachaça with great length.
