Don Quixote Pisqo Review Notes
Flavor of sugar cane, dried fruits. This is Pisqo has a caramel-like, spiced rum back note which maintains some of the fire without the sweetness of Rum. It has a full barrel characteristic. It gives a tropical feel and seems perfect on it’s own and would be lovely with a twist of lime.
This spirit is usually spelled, “Pisco.” It is brandy that is distilled from grapes and is typically made in wine-producing regions of Peru and Chile. It is the most widely consumed spirit in Argentina. The Pisco Sour is a very popular cocktail in these regions and is made with pisco, lemon or lime juice, egg whites, simple syrup, and regional bitters .
This Pisqo comes from Don Quixote Distillery and Winery Los Alamos, New Mexico
