Wine Enthusiast 87 points - Many will recognize the square dimpled bottle on the back bar right away. The amber liquid inside the bottle is distinctive too, with its sweet amaretto-cookie aroma and thin, almond extract flavor, touched with vanilla and orange. It’s a classic for amaretto sours or lacing coffee. - K.N. (Jan 2014)
Disaronno pours a dark amber, with hints of ruby. It smells of fresh cherries, vanilla, and of course, sweet almonds. You sip and get a deep, sweet almond extract, followed by what I can only describe as milk chocolate covered cherries, with hints of vanilla and fruit (coming from the apricot oil is my guess). It finishes smooth and leaves a sweet, lingering cherry and nutty taste in your mouth.
