Cachaca Prosa Mineira Tradicional

Cachaca Prosa Mineira Tradicional Rum Review by the fat rum pirateCachaca Prosa Mineira Tradicional. As I enter the website for Prosa Mineira I am informed that it is “The most awarded from Minas Gerais”. Now Minas Gerais is widely regarded as the “birthplace” of cachaca. For many it is the best region of Brasil to find cachaca.

So its quite a statement to make. Or is it? Is a brand really recognised by the number of awards it wins. I know of one reasonably well known rum brand that proclaims itself as the “Most Awarded Rum Brand in 2018/19”. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Tijuca Brazilian Blended Rum review by the fat rum pirateTijuca Blended Brazilian Rum. Production of Sugar Cane Spirits in Brasil is a huge business. Many people in the rest of the world consider Cachaca, the native Brasilian Sugar Cane Spirit a bit of a niche product. In Brasil, where it is produced it has an absolutely huge foothold in the domestic market. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Cachaca Doministro Prata

Cachaca Doministro Prata Rum Review by the fat rum pirateCachaca Doministro Prata. When Carlos Atia retired from his position as “Minister of the Federal Court of Accounts” in 1998, he already had an idea of how he would occupy himself in retirement.

For many years Carlos had been producing cachaca on a very small scale and gifting it to friends and family. The cachaca was of such a quality that they would often ask when they would receive another bottle of “Cachaca do Ministro”. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Cachaca da Tulha Special Edition 2019 rum review by the fat rum pirateCachaca da Tulha Special Edition 2019. In 1998 Vevo and Guto Quintella took over the São José do Mato Seco farm in Mococa, São Paulo.

By 2004 they had begun producing “traditional” Cachaca aged in native Brasilian woods – Carvalho and Jequitiba. The Quintella’s also set up a small “laboratory” for cachaca. In this laboratory they began experimenting with ageing cachaca in various wood such as Amburana, Balsam and European and American oak. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating

Cachaca of the Year 2020

Cachaca of the Year 2020 rum cachaca review by the fat rum pirateCachaca of the Year 2020. For our first Cachaca of the Year, I willl not name a shortlist, I will just announce which cachaca I enjoyed the most this year.  To be honest (and shame on you all) the reviews of cachaca I do, just don’t generate the same kind of interest that my usual rum reviews do.

S.B.S – The 1423 Single Barrel Selection Brazil 2013/2017

S.B.S – The 1423 Single Barrel Selection Brazil 2013/2017 rum cachaca review by the fat rum pirateS.B.S – The 1423 Single Barrel Selection Brazil 2013/2017. 1423 have released a few “Brazilian Rums” over the past few years – they even blended one with a Barbados rum.

Now technically the juice in this bottle is Cachaca. However due to a lack of understanding regarding Cachaca’s independent bottlers and even brands such as Ben Bom label their products “Brazilian Rum”. I guess this helps appeal and not alienate certain consumers who do not understand the spirit. Fair enough I say. Read more to see the fatrumpirate rating
