Default Oronoco Rum

Is this a rum from Brazil or a Cachaca? Also any input on quality?

It's rum (as far as I can tell), although I never did hear back from Edward on that as someone had suggested it was a *cachasa* & aged *rum* blend.

I think it is damn good, personally!

As long as it is good, it matters not what to call it. Thanks for the input.

Oronoco is RUM. It is made from a combination of aged Venezuelan rum, which gives it the vanilla flavor, and highly distilled sugar cane spirit from Brazil. In Brazil, if a spirit is made from molasses it is called rum. By law, in Brazil cachaзa must be distilled to between 38 and 48% alcohol by volume so Oronoco wouldn't be considered cachaзa on two counts. Unlike some other spirits which claim to be made from sugar cane juice, Oronoco doesn't have a sharp finish but rather a smooth vanilla finish.

This sounds like one I will certainly enjoy as I never had a Venezuelian rum I didn't like. Thanks for the info, very helpful.

Damn, that sounds delicious...

This is the stuff you guys are talking about, right?

Is there another out there with a similar name, and a completely different bottle? Maybe it was wrapped in straw or something... There's a local store which has this stuff, not the pretty bottle in the JPG above...

You might be thinking of Ocumare rum from Venezuela. I have a bottle, but have not tasted it yet.

I am currently on my 2nd bottle of this one. I really like it. I did a taste test with a few friends with several Venezulan rums (Santa Theresa Solera, Pampero, Diplomatic, Santa Theresa Grand Reserve and Ocumare). 4 out of the 5 picked the Ocumare as their favorite. I woul dnot go as far as to say that it is better than the Solera but for the price it is an excellent bargain.

I purchased a bottle of the Oronoco and was not disappointed. Very smooth with a nice vanilla finish. This will not be my last bottle of this. I am putting it on my top 10 list, at least for now.
