This sugar cane spirit is a blend of highly distilled sugar cane juice spirit from Brazil and aged rum from South America which gives the almost clear spirit a vanilla flavor in the initial taste and finish.
Light on the palate with a slightly sweet vanilla finish, Oronoco was designed to be a super premium white rum for premium cocktails.
Despite being made from sugar cane juice in Brazil, there are two important differences between Oronoco and cachaça.
First, Oronoco is distilled to more than the limit of 54% abv for cachaça. Second, it is a blend of rum made from molasses so under Brazilian law it must be classified as rum. It is bottled at 40% abv and labeled as rum in the US market.
Bottled at 40% alcohol by volume.
This rum is amazing from front to back. It has a sweet nose, most unlike any light rum. It has a wonderful cleanness, most unlike any cachaca. Oronoco is hands down, the best sipping white rum readily available on the market. If Oronoco ever decided to make an aged rum, it would be phenomenal.
Oronoco has a pleasant palate of vanilla which is its biggest characterisitic, yet it is still very well balanced. Oronoco is my favorite rum to drink on the rocks. It is also my favorite rum to mix in a mojito.
