Until recently I wouldn’t have known much about this distilled spirit.
Being National Cachaça Day on the 13th September – I was keen to explore.
Nêga Fulô Carvalho is made by Fazenda Soledade Ind De Bedibas near Rio.
Pale straw in colour – suggesting some ageing in wooden casks.
Those distinctive fresh grassy notes of sugarcane juice distillation are evident on the nose.
A smooth, sweet & gentle palate displaying freshness & vitality slowly develops a warming heat.
Touches of soft prickly spiciness enliven the finish which slowly fades away with tropical juiciness.
A very pleasant & easy introduction into the world of Cachaça – the spirit of Brazil.
