Found 18th Oct 2013
It's back again, for one week only..

Do not confuse this with the cheaper and lower alcohol percentage Amaretto at Aldi etc, this is 28% alcohol and now the same price as it was almost a year ago..

This any better than Soiree Amaretto that Asda are selling cheaper?

nice for the christmas cake

It is never a bad thing to have a lower % option, have to admit Aldi has pulled me away from Disaronno.

Cannot go wrong for £5.

Define "better"? Taste is subjective, though Soiree is 22% alcohol and £7 so it's probably better on the wallet (providing you don't buy/drink more)..

Is the Aldi one 70cl? Some comments in last year's thread suggest it's only 50cl

the lidl version is 70cl and the nearest thing to dissarano. I've tasted other supermarket brands and this is far superior!

Heat from me, love disaronno, hate the weaker ones as they just taste watered down, shame I don't have a lidl near by to put it to the taste test

The Morrison version is a very nice drink aswell if you can ever find any in stock at around £6 per 70cl can drink it like pop ;-)

Oh which ones best lidl or aldi ? There's only 1 way 2 find out . . . .

Probably, I haven't had a drink in months so I cannot remember.

I usually add a touch to whisky so a lower % suits me, cannot deny £9 for 70cl and higher % is good value though 1L at Aldi is £10.

We had an Aldi open near us yesterday, had to look twice at the price of the amaretto 6 quid & some change for 70cl forgot to look at it's %/alcohol

Aldi's normal Amaretto is definitely 50cl priced at £.4.99 and it's something like 14.7% alcohol. In the run up to christmas they have a 70cl one (it's in store now) which is about £6.40ish again 14.7%. So which is best depends on how important the alcohol % is to you. For me the Lidl one is the best because at 28% it's the same % as Disaronno and at this price it's definitely the best all round value for money. It's decent value for it's usual £9.99 price too when you take into account the fact that it's 70cl not 50cl and 28% so this is a steal.

£8.99 for supermarket own brand booze?

seems dear, I've still got some left from the cinema ticket offer on disaronna in summer

Just need a strong fiery ginger beer to mix with it and I'll be set.

There are two at Aldi at the mo, 1 50cl and 1 70cl. Girlfriend has just bought the 70 from there yesterday - was at a good price struggling to remember exact but was £9.15 per litre??

EDIT: Just checked its 14.7% (as posted by muel - my bad didn't see your post!)

I find methylated spirits gives it a bit of a boost and also takes away alot of the nasty meths taste so a double wammy!

I meant that a bottle of this would be nice whilst making the cake. Further bottle(s) can be consumed whilst the relatives are round.

I would suggest a well known Juniper based Spirit but don't want to be banned again

You get banned for saying brand names?? Didn't know that?? Still don't know what you're referring to. haha Thanks anyway....had a few replies to give me an idea

Thanks to those that replied.....am going to invest in a bottle and some cherry coke and cranberry, and give it a go...possibly not the meths, as suggested, thank you all

Taste almondy.
Personally I'm a big fan of it neat, but it goes nice with coffee (with as a side or mixed in) and my personal favourite mix is with fiery ginger beer (the M&S extremely fiery one if you can find it).

This makes coke taste like cherry coke so getting cherry coke might be overkill.

Heat added, good price - I think it's best with plain coke and it makes it taste like cherry coke. Nice to mix with baileys and ice though if you prefer that

got the last bottle in my local today :-)

Liked with cherry coke and also dr peppers.
