GSN Review: Campo de Encanto Pisco

bottle-campodeencanto

Campo de Encanto Pisco is a handcrafted, artisanal Peruvian Pisco created by a bartender, a sommelier and a distiller who, together, have over 75 years of experience working with wine and spirits. Launched in the U.S. in June 2010, by Duggan McDonnell, Walter Moore and Carlos Romero, Encanto is sustainably-harvested, vinted, and distilled according to the standards set by the Comisión Nacional del Pisco of Perú: distilled only once, nothing added, no preservatives, no sugar, no water. Encanto is also the only Pisco to have created a Solera, a system of blending across vintages and varietals.

Campo de Encanto Pisco (80 proof)
Visual: Clear.
Nose: Soft, creamy notes of grape spirit.  Absolutely mouth-watering and enticingly crisp.  The best nose on a Pisco that I’ve experienced.
Taste: Smooth, reserved, quiet and perfect.  Initially, there is little to note, but ever so gradually, the delicate grape character comes in, then some spices on the back palate, finishing with a dry and slightly bitter edge.  So good.
Finish: Short, with just a few final notes of grape waving goodbye.
Overall: This is amazing pisco, and well deserving of a place on your backbar.  In a traditional Pisco Sour this will enlighten you.  Try it with the Pineapple Cordial that is also available from Campo de Encanto in a Pisco Punch.  This has been a hit at the GSN offices all week!
GSN Rating: A++
