Tesco Amaretto for £8 instead of £10

34
Found 5th Dec 2012
This is my first ever post so be gentle with me.

Just picked up a couple of bottles of Tesco's Amaretto, it tastes just like the expensive stuff and at £8 it's a great price

70cl bottles 22% alcohol

Cheers

    Got this the other day after I saw Disaronno was reduced to £12; spent the £4 on something else!

    Always mix this with something else and haven't been able to taste the difference.
    How big is the bottle im ml, and whats the price compared to aldi or lidl? Not sure if it be cheaper than them. Anyone know?

    Aldi is cheaper but not as strong, something like 12% ?
    at lidl it is around the £10 mark for 70cl
    This and Red Bull tastes like Kool Aid. True story.

    Good point, it is my first post though!
    This is the same as Asda's version and £8 is its normal price
    Does this taste like biscuit ?
    Its a 70cl bottle so bigger than your standard disaronno. Nowhere near as nice though and even at the price I would prefer to buy the proper stuff at double the price. Each to their own tho

    Depends on the biscuit. An almond one - yes. A chocolate digestive - no
    Great deal, have some heat

    If it was stronger I would consider this a good deal but at 22% it won't get you drunk.

    Obviously there are some people that drink alcohol for the taste, I however am not one of those people. Neither hot nor cold from me.
    Sainsburys also have a 70ml 22% bottle for £8. Not bad for mixing but not a touch on the real stuff for drinking neat.
    I wish i had a lidl with 30mins to try theres but no luck
    yum, hot
    Great thanks
    Flamedeer!

    lol,
    Is this the way to Amaretto, where Marie who waits for me.

    Sha la la, la la la la oof!

    nowhere near as good as disaronno, far too vanilla-y for my liking still have half a bottle sitting in the cupboard for about 2 years now and not likely to be touched - and i generally am not the wasteful type when it comes to alcohol

    Same here. I love Disaronno, but not this. I imagine it'd be good for cooking. Mine's collecting dust too. Yuk!

    Anyone thinking of buying this, don't expect it to taste like Disaronno!
    good price but i dislike the taste of this, tastes far too sweet and too almond for my liking, prefer the slightly more expensive disaronno
    Got 8 x 70cL bottles of 27% italian amaretto in Carrefour at Bruges last week for 4.85 euros each on my P&O booze cruise with the car and it tastes as nice as disaronno. Not really an accessible offer for most, but I just thought i'd brag!:p
    Thanks I don't find the taste bad, although i do mix it with coke
    This is nothing like Disaronno or Lidl's version that was posted on this site yesterday. Not much difference between Disaronno and the Lidl stuff, apart from a few percent, but nothing taste-wise,however this stuff is terrible, definitely taste the difference!!!!

    Good price since it is normally about £12 I think and not OP's fault it's minging so have added heat for that

    But be warned, tastes nothing like Disaronno!!
    This is poor in comparison to genuine amaretto. Bought a bottle of the £9.99 stuff from Lidl, made in Italy and tastes better than Disaronno.
