Retiro Velho 2 yo

retiro

Cachaça:  Retiro Velho – 2 yo – 42 abv

Origin:  Araguari – Minas Gerais (Brazil)

Distilled: 2006

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
