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.
