One of the few alchoholic substances I simply cannot stand. Good price if this is your cup of tea however.

Does this taste of almonds?

Does this taste of almonds?



personally I dont like almonds but drink this all the time....but it does taste very much like marzipan (I know its meant to taste the same but I dont think it does :roll:)
Mix it with coke and it tastes like Dr Pepper

as for the deal.....it is often on 'offer' for £10 in the supermarkets so not all that hot for me, but not cold...just neither

the amber-coloured liqueur with the incomparable taste



Except, of course, when compared to marzipan...

Put some grenadine in with the coke\pepsi and it tastes more like cherry coke (or cherry bakewell, however you're inclined).

Very nice drink ,on its own or with coke!

I had terrible trouble in my shop a few years ago when an elderly lady asked for 'almond paste' I had no idea and asked her what you did with it. she said she put it on cakes. So we went to the baking section and, after a quick look, I apologised for not having any in only for her to pull the 'almond paste' AKA Marzipan off the shelf.

Not fond of almonds
Love Marzipan
Not sure on disaronno due to mysterious memory blackouts :whistling:

Amaretto + Jack Daniels + Coke = Jack-a-mo.

There is no better drink.

Half pint of coke, half pint of beer/ale, a few shots of this, nom nom nom!

I was going to say that too!

Thanks for the deal!
Hot!

Nodame

same price in sainsbury's

Is this 50cl or 70cl bottle?

The Lidl version is just as good and a little cheaper I believe.

What you taste/smell is Benzaldehyde, which is synthesized to make marzipan, also found in almonds, apricots, apples and cherry kernels.

tasty with milk too

... and I imagine the difference between this and cheaper versions is that the benzaldehyde is added at a later stage in cheaper brands (probably as a synthetic compound too). Where as perhaps in the more expensive versions have almonds added in the synthesis phase which leach out natural benzaldehyde compounds

There is normally a reason one is cheap, and another isn't

If a number of synthetic compounds results are to be believed, then its difficult to completely repeat these results in a laboratory set-up, and generally stereo-isomers lead to a number of inactive compounds being present, perhaps weakening the taste, or perhaps meaning far higher levels of what is essentially an artificial flavouring compound

Its up to everyone though, probably worth noting there would be differences between brands, if you can't see the difference, that's up to you. Don't make people feel bad about buying an 'unneccesarly' expensive version

Really lovely in a hot cup of filter coffee....just like the italians drink it!! Try it, you will be hooked!:thumbsup:

Is this 50cl or 75cl, anyone knows ? It's fab to make amaretto sours: amaretto + sugar+lime on ice

Yer i have bought the one from lidle and there aint that much difference , however I only ever drink mine with coca-cola :thumbsup:

50cl/70cl/1ltr? anyone?

50cl, not a great deal IMO

Agreed! They sell it in my local Lloyds and Wetherspoons 'cept its called The Godfather.

Bailey's and Amaretto, in equal amounts.

Take the above ingredients, add a head of guinness. That my friend, is the greatest drink ever!

No they don't add it, but it's the chemical that's naturally present that defines the taste.

Eh?? I do apologise if I've made anyone feel bad...I can't remember the name of the brand they have in Lidl but it's in no way inferior to this one and it's cheaper, probably because they don't spend any money on advertising. I imagine it's made in the same way and it tastes identical.

Probably with a little effort, Heston Blumenthal uses it at the Fat Duck.

as someone previously mentioned, almonds are not present in any way in the manufacture of Amaretto. Also, Benzaldehyde is a planar ring, and as such has no stereoisomers.

If you desperately want to get benzaldehyde, buy some toluene (you can order it from ebay, also called methylbenzene), and some hydrochloric acid (also available on ebay), heat them (gently) and then mix with hydrogen peroxide (available from most chemists). I can't stress enough how much i recomend you *don't* though, and that even if you do, do not drink it. it'll smell nice though.

As for the cheap lidl one - i've tried both, and if you are mixing it with something that has a strong flavour, i.e. coke, then it's fine, but it doesn't taste as nice when served neat, or in an amaretto sour (en.wikipedia.org/wik…our), my personal favourite amaretto cocktail.

I leave out the coke myself.

Just have equal measures of Amaretto and Whisky (can be any type and the good news is that it seems to taste just as good with 'cheap' whisky than 'better' stuff) -

and you end up tasting alcoholic cherry bakewells. what could be better?

What a disgusting thing to do to JD. JD should have nothing with it except ice! :thumbsup:

Lidl - bigger bottle (70cl against 50cl) - better taste although pretty similar (could not tell the difference unless taking them at the same time - but that is obviously just my view) - lower price (8.99 against a tenner - so Tesco costs over 50% more for the same amount - the Lidl one is 28vol - the Tesco one may be less - I cannot remember - but would have remembered if it was stronger.

No competition really as they are so similar, even the bottles.

COLD

Agreed the cheaper 70cl tastes just as good. I cant taste the difference in fact.

Do you also go around voting down iPod deals because you can pick a cheaper MP3 player up elsewhere? Likewise with branded clothing.

Some people!

Soiree Amaretto - classic liqueur £7.18 70cl at Asda bought it yesterday, not tired it yet.

Great with coke because it actually makes it taste like an acoholic Dr Pepper.

Here are my recommendations:-

Amaretto + hot choc is divine. Got through a lot of this in the snowy weather!
Amaretto + Brandy in equal (large!) measures= French Connection. Yum!

Tesco also do a discounted brand of Amaretto for £8.99 which is also rather nice. Thanks for the heads up about the Lidl one. I've never been but will have to now!!

i love this stuff, gorgeous

good price

Definately agree that the Lidl stuff is just as good and cheaper. The Disaronno is usually a 50cl bottle and the Lidl Amaretto is a 70cl and think its about £9 a bottlle now, but might be £8.50

Love ameretto.

Another suggestion..pour over vanilla ice cream with a few crushed biscuits (cornish fairings or gingerbreads works well..or any crunchy biscuit ).

Lots and lots of ice with fresh orange juice. Yum yum!

yer this is 50cl, but sadly i cant find anywhere that still stock the 70cl. And this deal is about this item, and while you can get cheaper other brands of amaretto, its a different product! I like the cheaper brands, and do buy them, but you can never beat the original higher quality product for a more special occasion.
