Oronoco Fazenda Reserva Light Rum | Rum Reviewer Rum Reviews

oronoco fazenda reservaOronoco Fazenda Reserva deluxe rum from brazil is fabricated by cachaça makers Vicente and Roberto Bastos Ribeiro. In 2005, this rum was introduced in New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. The exceptionally smooth and creamy taste is the result of freshly cut, unprocessed mountain cane juice found on the Brazilian mountains. This cane is hand-picked and crushed within 24 hours of cutting. It is then finely blended with fresh triple distilled cane juice with pure Brazilian mountain spring water and mixes it with a small proportion of Venezuelan aged rums, for the further flavor it is gently rested in Brazilian Amendoim wood. The aroma includes scents of honey, sugar cane, cut grass, charcoal, light wood smoke, and buttermilk. No doubt it is considered the smoothest rum in the world. You can enjoy it’s on its own or mix it with your favorite cocktail.

  • It tastes light, creamy, and sweet with a touch of pepper kick mid-palate, bitter towards the back. The bitterness is pervasive after dilution but becomes more balanced due to the sweetness with a good dose of vanilla, caramel, and a bit of cinnamon. The palate entry is sweet; midpalate is syrupy and thick.
