Cachaça review: B Honey Cachaça Sting Shots
B Honey Cachaça Sting Shots from Rio
A dose of honey and lemon in my cachaça? Sounds like a recipe for a soar throat, but not according to the new B (bee) cachaça. Created by a former Formula 1 driver (Nelsinho Piquet) and his friends (Eduardo Jorge, Hendrik Wolff) together with a design agency in Rio, this cachaça is winning the hearts of many through its design, low alcohol content and taste.
At first I was skeptical about this cachaça, as I am usually not a fan of sweet drinks. Nonetheless, this one seems to mark the exception. Blending cachaça with such ingredients is not a novelty, in this case revitalized through good marketing to make it seem avant-garde. But either if you have a weakness for the sweet, or are as skeptical as I was, give it a taste and let me know. Hopefully you will be surprised.
> Smell: Heavily perfumed with honey and a dash of lime, followed by the inevitable distant touch of cachaça fragrance. The sweet sugar aroma stays discreet, and lets the rounded honey smell express itself to its fullest.
> Taste: The texture gives the sensation of drinking liquid honey, but without the sweetness. The lime then takes over and covers the sweetness with bitterness, leaving a tingling of lime. This quickly leaves your palette, making you crave for more.
