Leblon Seleção Verde Cachaça
Leblon // Minas Gerais, Brazil
This single-vintage cachaça is a unique release that’s crafted from sugarcane from the 2014 harvest. The fresh, hand-cut sugarcane is pressed within three hours. After fermentation, the juice is distilled using the traditional batch method in copper pot stills, then bottled unfiltered at still-strength (90 proof).
CachaçaProduced in Brazil. Distilled from sugarcane juice. If aged, at least 50% of product must be at least 1 year old. The types of barrels used are not specified, but often utilize Brazilian wood. Up to 6 grams of sugar per liter may be added.
"The nose is funky and pungent, with notes of sugarcane, lemongrass, plantains, lychee and cracked pepper. The full-bodied palate is grassy and spicy, with sugarcane, vanilla and tropical fruit notes. The finish is long and dry, with a peppery kick and lingering heat."
