Monin's Almond Syrup uses no artificial flavourings - only good quality almonds to capture a truly authentic flavour, and makes it to a precise sweetness of 61.30 brix (meaning there's 61.3g of sugar to every 100g of syrup).

Review and Tasting


Sampled on 26/07/2016

Appearance:

(sample bottle BBE Feb/16) Cloudy, opaque milky grey.

Aroma:

Toasted biscotti with dairy aromas, Play-doh, almond and Battenberg cake.

Taste:

Sugared almond and Battenberg cake with faint steamed banana leaf and fresh rosemary with gum Arabic-like thickness.

Aftertaste:

Icing sugar, fading with sugared almonds and nougat.

Overall:

A nose with notes somewhat reminiscent of Play-doh leads to a rich palate with flavours of sugared almond and Battenberg cake.
