Golden amber color. Toasty, sweet aromas and flavors of cinnamon pastry, cardamom, tonka beam, maple creme, shortbread, and dulce de leche with a satiny, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a tingling, elegant, medium-long finish evoking notes of vanilla custard, lavender, coconut cream, and cashew finish. A creamy aged cachaça packed a spice cabinet of flavor; a great sipper with endless cocktail possibilities.
