Novo Fogo Bar Energy Silver Cachaça Assessment


Those used to the hair-raising ABVs of barrel-strength spirits could also be unfazed by the designation of Novo Fogo’s Bar Energy Silver Cachaça. However the level of the Brazilian distiller’s spirit isn’t to supply an unvarnished, straight-from-the-still consuming expertise, however fairly to up the proof to extend the spirit’s presence in cocktails. As such, it’s distinguished by an ABV of 43% versus the 40% of Novo Fogo Silver Cachaça.

Its nostril is funky in a method that ought to be acquainted to anybody who’s ever loved a rhum agricole or cachaça. Grassy, bitter, and candy in a method that conjures overripe tropical fruits and even a touch of coconut.

That theme continues on the palate, which stays sour-sweet initially with a bevy of fruit flavors together with kiwi and apricot. On the middle there’s a candy tang of coconut milk, which is adopted by spice, ginger, and the vegetal sweetness of uncooked sugar cane. Lastly, it ends with the cleaning presence of sea salt. 

Including to its utility in cocktails is its texture, which is milky however clear. Cachaça’s prime utility is as the bottom of a Caipirinha, however I additionally tried it in an Outdated-Common, the place it carried out admirably. Its candy, fruity funk remained entrance and middle whereas the Angostura bitters dovetailed properly with its present spice, and its spice and sea salt qualities made for a clear palate-cleansing end. All issues thought-about, a powerful candidate for a favourite new after-dinner drink.
