The result is a smooth taste and mouthfeel, without the transference of oaky flavors and aromas. Clear with a faint straw hue. Sweet creamy vanilla pudding, light caramel, and spicy aromas.
Leblon Cachaca Description:
Leblon is shipped from Brazil to Saint Sauvant, in the Cognac region of France. The spirit is lightly-aged in french oak casks previously used for XO cognac for thirty to ninety days. The final distillate is filtered three times, and is then immediately bottled in the crystalline bottle.
The result is a smooth taste and mouthfeel, without the transference of oaky flavors and aromas. Clear with a faint straw hue. Sweet creamy vanilla pudding, light caramel, and spicy aromas. A smooth entry leads to an off-dry medium-full body of toasty coconut shavings, creamy vanilla, and brown spices. Finishes with a long, caramel, mineral, and white pepper fade. A very nice, vibrant-yet-mellow style. Beverage Testing Institute Rating: 93pts
"We produce Leblon Cachaça at our distillery in Patos de Minas, in the heart of Minas Gerais, Brazil (think sugar cane fields). We combine traditional approaches with creative European winemaking techniques to create a Cachaça that is extra special. Gilles Merlet, famous master distiller from the Cognac region of France, takes Cachaça to a whole new level with his ‘French touch,’ transforming our distillery in Patos de Minas to the state-of-the-art Maison Leblon. Gilles produces small batches using alembique copper potstills, then polishes the Cachaça in XO Cognac Casks for an ultra-smooth taste. The Cachaça is then blended across batches for flavor complexity, body, and aroma."
