Sapucaia Velha Reserva da Familia

The cachaça: Sapuciaia Velha Reserva da Familia

 Region: São Paulo – Brazil

Distilled: ca 2004 in copper pot stills

 Bottled: 2014 at 40,5 abv

 Matured for 10 years in oak casks

 

Nose: sugar cane juice, warm toasted bread, and fine but firm oak.

 Taste: Much like the Sapucaia Velha Tradicional, but richer, smoother, more refined.  Nice hints of dreid fruit. This even has something cognac-like. The sugarcane is present, but is hiding rather well. A cachaça to the likings of amateurs of cachaça, rum, but also cognac or whisky.

 Finish: Medium long with warming oaky influence supporting the delicate sweetness.

 

Our score: ***** . Playboy – the magazine with the interesting interviews and articles – listed this cachaça of one of the very best around – and who are we to disagree with Playboy? 🙂

 

Remarks: this is without any doubt the best cachaça we ever tasted so far.
