Pop quiz: What’s the proof level of Pisco 100?

84 proof, of course!

The origin of Pisco 100’s name is unclear, but this Peruvian Pisco — an “acholado” style blended of distillate from several grape varietals — is a pungent example of the spirit. On the nose, traditional Pisco character — jet fuel, aromatic pine needles, woody coconut husk. The evergreen sticks with you into the body, which speaks again of the forest, with a mushroomy finish that makes you forget about that gasoline rush on the nose.

Earthy, fresh, and fragrant, it has a lot to like, especially those fun aromatics, though it’s a touch on the pricey side.

84 proof.

    I am peruvian with some experience in Piscos.
    I don’t know about this brand but I can tell you this brand can not compete with top peruvian brands. A doubt is popular in Peru.
    Not recommended. at all
