Luxardo Amaretto Liqueur (700ml)
A superb example, produced using superior quality soft almonds sourced from Southern Sicily and made in a style originating from an old Italian recipe. Part of the Luxardo family's method sees the liqueur aged in Larchwood vats for eight months before bottling.
Tasting note: Gold ochre colour with pale straw hue. Perfumed top note of marzipan above stewed apricots, manuka honey and vanilla bean. The palate is luxurious - exceptionally soft and luscious. The flavours delivered are intense and superbly balanced. Marzipan and manuka honey dominates with vanilla in support. Clean finish. Exceptionally long aftertaste of marzipan and vanilla with a subtle creme brulee fade. Excellent. 24% Alc./Vol.
Other reviews... Smells and tastes like amaretti biscuits with rich marzipan and toasted almond. Slightly sweeter than some other Amarettos.
