Cachaça Taverna de Minas Ouro
The Cachaça : Taverna de Minas Ouro
Origin: Itaverava, Minas Gerais
Distilled: ca 2012 in pot stills
Bottled: ca 2014
Matured: Oak, for 2 years
ABV: 39 %
Nose: elegant nose with sugar cane juice combined with softer wood influence. Fruity aroma’s (dried fruits) and a touch of warm vanilla. Also some fine sawdust.
Taste: in our humble opinion, this is a cachaça that goes both for mixing and sipping. The sugar cane juice is present and powerfull but never overwhelming. Again a nice woody influence with that touch of light vanilla and those dried fruits. First attack in the mouth is a bit alcoholic but gets smoother very fast. Toasted oak.
Finish: mediumlong on the same notes as the taste, drying towards the end. Well balanced cachaça indeed.
