Wine Enthusiast 90 points - Hailing from Northern Italy, this tawny-orange liqueur is based on biscotti cookies. It has a remarkable pastry-like quality, from the rich roasted-almond aroma to the sweet, syrupy, almond-paste flavor flecked with fennel. Use to sweeten coffee, tiki drinks in place of orgeat syrup, or to add flavor to baked goods. - K.N.
Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2011Finalist. Sensuously biscuity and almond paste-like aroma is lovely; flavor profile highlights include almond paste, buttered almond, cookie batter and confectioner's sugar; delicious.
The opening whiffs find pleasing confectioner's sugar and cookie batter scents; aeration adds a note of orange peel that mingles well with the sugar and batter aromas. The palate entry is sweet, intense and biscuit-like; the orange aspect emerges at midpalate and balances the sugary sweetness. Ends elegantly. 90-95 Points Wine Enthusiast
