As any decent barman will tell you, this cachaça has a deserved reputation for making the finest caipirinhas. It is a much more delicate and smooth drink than many of its peers and this makes it a superb choice for the caipirinha. It has a very light, fresh, grassy flavour, which stands up just enough to punch through the lime. Having said that, I do prefer the slightly more "agricultural" and perhaps unrefined flavour of the Germana 2 year old, which packs a bigger "punch" in a cocktail. It's not as smooth, for sure, but WOW! Try it.
