Very good news, Robert! I have grown used to the low price point of Pirassununga Cachaca 51 for my parties. This trumps the price which I find it at BevMo. I can't wait to try it. Thanks for the report.

Default Seagram's Smooth Brazilian - Raspberry

The new Seagram's Smooth Brazilian has two flavored cousins: Raspberry and Citrus. Today I tried the raspberry. It's incredibly fragrant with big nose of raspberry. The taste is also very smooth, no artificial tones. I'll be trying it in some cocktails in the coming days with good results, I predict.

Thumbs up

Our local Krogers affiliate, Ralphs, is now stocking the Smooth Brazilian Rum. It's quite nice. I certainly taste the cachaca tone which Robert cited. Smoooooooth it is, also! A light essence of peach and plum are flavors which I can identify. I compared this rum to Pyrat Blanco because I thought that it was pretty close from memory. It turns out that was a pretty good call. The Pyrat's mouth feel is decidedly more viscous, but the taste is close. The nose is a fruity bouquet. For $12, this is a steal. As a sipper, it's not going to replace a complex dark rum. But, neat, it won't offend, either. I predict that the full flavor is going to hold up pretty well in a cocktail, too.

I imagined that it wouldn't take long for the flavors to arrive, and I wasn't disappointed.

Excellent call this is a very nice white rum--especially for the price.
There were a good amount of tree fruits in there, quite tasty.

The Brazilian people that I know don't think it is a good rum for caipirinhas, but I detect a bit of prejudice because it isn't cachaзa. To my taste it is better than some of the cachaзa I've had.
