Review and Tasting
Sampled on 26/08/2019
Clear, pale golden.
Overripe banana and hazelnut with vanilla, nutmeg and oak slightly scorched while being freshly sawn.
Herbal and spicy with sweet grassy sugar cane and vanilla balancing dry, faintly smoky, oak.
Lightly spiced oak and grassy cane with vanilla and faint citrus.
Despite the influence of a full year in oak, Chameleon perhaps retains more of the grassy sweet sugar cane character than Novo Fogo's unaged Silver. If you can't afford to keep bottles of both unaged and barrel aged cachaça on your shelf, then Chameleon is a perfect middle of the road.
