Default Moleca Gold

I found this bottle (and a few others) around the corner from the Delano Hotel in South Beach while at the rum competition. This was on the bottom shelf priced well under $20 and I had not seen it before. Roger and Dave http://www.rndrumreviews.com/RnDRumReviews/Home.html were with me but did not purchase a bottle. Too Bad!

Bottle info: Moleca Gold, double distilled, aged 3 years, distilled by Fazenda Soledade Ltd. Nova Friburgo Brazil.

Color is medium gold with good clarity. Nose is more delicate than many cachacas with aromas of cane flower, fruit, leather, and wood. Yes there it is, the smell of being in the cane feilds when the cane is blooming. In the mouth it is fairly smooth with the faintest hint of sweetness breaking the overall dry.

I am unable to distinguish what wood was used for the aging but it darn sure is not oak. There are too many Brazilian woods that I don't know well enough. I figure that 6 months of visiting distilleries around Brazil would help me know them better.

[Cheney to Bush, "South America has commited 6 Brazilian troops to helping out with the war on terror." Bush, "That's great! How many is a Brazillion?"]

The balance of woodiness and cane notes is very well done. The general tone might be compared to a fine tequila or Don Q Gran Anejo. This is not a big cachaca, but a delicate lady worthy of savoring.

Thanks for the alert angelsword. The price seems very favorable and fortunate for the locals.

This spirit was favorably mentioned in a previous thread:

Moleca Gold

and the two Moleca offerings were entered in the 2008 Ybor City competition:

Moleca Gold was initially priced at $40, so you're seeing it for a great price. I'd say it's worth that much. I truly interesting cachaca.
