Aged: Unaged

Água Luca is distilled from the fermented juice of hand cut sugar cane within 24 hours of harvesting, then filtered 12 times. So it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to deduce that it is a cachaça developed for the American market rather than a spirit discovered in Brazil.
The sleek cylindrical bottle, by Saverglass of France, features a contemporary take on the Brazilian flag. The familiar white stars and blue background are printed on the back and can be viewed through a yellow rhombus containing the brand name on the front.

Review and Tasting


Sampled on 03/01/2011

Appearance:

Crystal clear.

Aroma:

Demerara sugar with nutty whiffs

Taste:

Slightly sweet, spirity palate. Extensive filtration has certainly cleaned Água Luca up but some rustic cachaça character remains.

Aftertaste:

I find it so sweet that I wonder whether sugar has been added after distillation.
