Tasting Notes

"The aroma of this pisco is an intriguing combination of grape spirit and American oak; there's a very distinct woody fragrance thanks to extended rest in new barrels. One could imagine mistaking it for a young cognac, but a better one. Tasting this spirit suggests intriguing mixing possibilities -- perhaps using the pisco in place of brandy or bourbon in classic stirred cocktails -- but it's also quite enjoyable on its own."
