Copper color. Aromas and flavors of spicy raisin bran, elephant cage straw, dried bananas, and butter roasted brazil nuts with a glycerous, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a silky, complex, very long finish with overtones of fennel, sweet and peppery spices, bee pollen and propolis, and plantain. An intriguingly rustic, rich, and warming aged cachaça that invites another sip.
