I picked up a bottle of Agua Luca--cool bottle. Opened it up and was disappointed to smell a faint resemblance to tequila, which I do not like. Sipped a little and also was reminded of tequila. I made up a caipirinha with limes, superfine sugar, and ice. It was okay, but not nearly as good as I was expecting.
Am I crazy to be reminded of tequila? It certainly wasn't like rum, which is what I was expecting. It's always disappointing to buy a fifth and liquor and then not really like it. Especially when it's something most people haven't heard of and probably won't want to try. I'd really like to try other cachacas--too bad I can't find the airplane bottles of it.
