Galliano Balsamico is especially formulated for cocktail use. It does not contain any balsamic vinegar at all, but a liqueur cleverly flavoured to give the full taste of a balsamic liqueur to cocktails. Read more
Sampled before 1st May 2011
Treacle brown in colour.
Pungent glue-like nose (UHU) has notes reminiscent of creosote, stewed fruit and cough mixture (Covonia).
Intense palate features shrivelled prune, Victoria plum, strong liquorice, clove and vinegar notes.
Hints of red fruit emerge before glue-like notes return on the acidic finish. Before experimenting with this liqueur, try diluting two parts water to one part liqueur and sampling at room temperature. When this dilute (as it might be with a small measure in a cocktail) the glue notes subside and strawberry and liquorice emerge.
