Clear, bright golden.
Leathery apricot delicately wooded with biscuit, orange fudge and cinnamon sticks.
Perhaps more rum-like than cachaça with stewed fruit and strong cinnamon.
Citrus zest bursts forth. We score harshly as it's not what we expect from a cachaça, but is a good spirit nonetheless.
Closure: Screw / Stelvin cap
