Can you substitute rum for cachaca?

In an emergency, a good Puerto Rican rum will do just fine. After one or two caipirinhas, I can't imagine anyone other than the most sophisticated connoisseur telling the difference. Sure, cachaca is more authentic...but cachaca is Brazilian rum made from sugar cane, and is not very different from Puerto Rican rum.
