Review: Pisa Nut Liqueur

Kudos to Pisa for the unique — if obvious — bottle design here: The Italian nut-flavored liqueur’s decanter needs absolutely no introduction.

A member of the Amaretto/Frangelico family, Pisa is unique in that it’s flavored with three different nuts: hazelnut, almond, and pistachio. And Pisa really does, surprisingly, have elements of all three. I’d say it’s the almond/Amaretto character that’s the strongest, followed by the pistachio (done quite well on its own in Dumante liqueur). Pisa also offers a moderate orange peel character, which is a bit at odds with the viscous, oily body.

Ultimately its authentic flavors make Pisa a qualified success, but it’s a little complex for cocktailing as well as a tad too syrupy for drinking on its own.

48 proof.

  1. My thinking is that this brand will die because of the bottle. Putting that on my shelf will kill at least 1 other facing. Is it going to sell fast enough to make up for the facing that is lost? I doubt it.
