  • Interesting. Pisco brandy flavor comes through. Sloe gin not overpowering. Used Vya dry, so lots of bitter botanicals in the background. Good use of Vya. — ☆☆☆

By the way, using tequila

By the way, using tequila reposado instead of pisco in this drink is just as awesome and takes your sip in another interesting direction, as I'm finding out tonight.

Just tried this along with

Just tried this along with the Reposado version mentioned (Jalisco Expedition?). Both were very good. Great use of sloe gin. May have even slightly preferred the tequila version.
