Playboy praises this as one of the best cachaça's. Sleek from 10 years of maturation, with a woody taste and hints of dried fruit. Best served neat at room temperature.
A wise, strong lady. After maturing for ten years in carvalho (oak) wood, the characteristic wood flavor is fully developed; soft with a predominance of dried fruit.
It should be drunk neat and at room temperature, like a fine cognac or aged whisky and is an excellent choice for the more experienced cachaça drinker. This is the older sister of the Sapucaia Velha Tradicional and it is said that you have to learn how to drink it. In 2007 Playboy magazine named it one of the 20 best Brazilian cachaça's, and in 2009 its younger sister, which is somewhat sharper, received this honorable distinction.
This is a logical consequence, because making cachaça's is what they do best at Sapucaia. In 1933 Cicero da Silva Prado founded the distillery in Pindamonhangaba, in the interior of São Paulo state. Since then, the name Sapucaia is synonymous with quality.
