Companheira Extra Premium Carvalho

Companheira Extra Premium Carvalho cachaca review by the fat rum pirateCompanheira Extra Premium Carvalho. This is the third cachaca from Companheira that I have reviewed. Confusingly, one of those cachaca’s was also called Companheira Extra Premium minus the Carvalho part. However, it is also aged in Carvalho (oak).

The difference between the two products seems to be a simple case of age. So although both are noted as “Extra Premium” (a nonsense in itself) this one has been aged in oak barrels for 4 years as opposed to 8 years for the Extra Premium. How this makes them both “Extra Premium” is beyond me. 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 Prosa Mineira Carvalho Rum review by the fat rum pirate Cachaca Prosa Mineira Carvalho. Hailing from the city of Santa Rita de Caldas in the southern region of Minas Gerais comes Cachaca Prosa Mineira. Arguably Minas Gerais is the most recognised and respected state in Brasil, when it comes to Artisanal Cachaca production.

It is a relatively new brand and only came to the market in 2010.It is an Artisanal Cachaca brand so it is distilled on Copper Pot Stills. The sugar cane used is harvested next to the distillery and is cut by hand. The sugar cane juice is then extracted within a 24 hour period following the harvest.

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 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
