Sweet creamy vanilla pudding, light caramel, and spicy aromas.
A smooth entry leads to an off-dry medium-full body of toasty coconut shavings, creamy vanilla, and brown spices.
Finishes with a long, caramel, mineral, and white pepper fade.
A very nice, vibrant-yet-mellow style.
Leblon Cachaca was awarded a Double Gold Medal at the 7th Annual San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
It was one of only two spirits in its category to receive the Double Gold Medal, and Leblon was also named 'Top Cachaca' by a judging panel of the most influential spirits industry professionals in the U.S.
The category with the largest growth was Cachaca - which went from three entries in 2006 (when it was introduced as a new category) to 16 entries in 2007 - making it equal to the Gin category for number of entries.

Review: Leblon makes by far the best caipirinha I've tried yet, it's fruity and smooth, absolutely delicious! If you've not tried it yet, you're really missing out.

Review: Tried this last week in the Mahiki Bar and I asked the barman in the basement club to make me his best Caipirinha. He went straight for this bottle and then spent 10 mins extolling its virtues. He made me the best Caipirinha I have ever tasted and I'm so glad that I've found it on this website as I couldn't find it anywhere else.
