Retiro Velho 2 yo
Cachaça: Retiro Velho – 2 yo – 42 abv
Origin: Araguari – Minas Gerais (Brazil)
Bottled: 2008 – batch 2.
Nose: the young must is very prominent and even aggressive omnipresent. It takes a while to get some of the softer aromas: ripe white and sour fruits.
Taste: Sugar cane alll the way; but in a very strange and even chemical way. Could work in your average pre-bbq caipirinha, but definitely not one to drink pure.
Finish: flat, no complexity whatsoever. Medium sweet evolving to slightly bitter. Rather short finish- and that might be the good news.
Our Score : 10/20
Remarks : matured in cerejeira casks
