Tasting Notes

"Pierde Almas Ancestral Corn Whiskey is unlike anything else on the market. Tasted blind, one might think it's a mezcal. It shares a similar rustic quality and intense minerality. It's wonderfully complex, layering notes of slate, pepper, and fruit atop its grain base. This spirit is not just unusual; it's a revelation for how good white whiskey can be."
