Proof66 Notes

Di Amore Amaretto is the classic Italian almond liqueur made with an additional apricot "essence." It's been heralded as a romantic drink (hence, the "amore") and an aphrodisiac.

Booze Basher gave Di Amore a 6.5 out of 10 rating, saying "$10 for a liquor that the girls are sure to love, makes Amaretto di Amore well worth the price. Plus, if you don't feel like really drinking, you can just mix it with a cola from the fridge and give it to the kids."

Di Amore is a line of liqueurs that has changed hands on a few different occasions, currently residing with Sazerac. The source still appears to be Italy.

Not awful but does taste a lot like maraschino cherry liquid. A budget choice to be sure, though tasty and works in the requisite cocktails. It doesn't convey any kind of Italian charm, it's kind of a faceless booze syrup. There's a number of better brands out there, if you really want some great amaretto get Luxardo.

My first Amaretto was an 'off brand' amaretto that was surprisingly good. I really wanted to try Di Saronno, but I saw this brand, which was ten dollars less at my local liquor store. So, to compare, I bought the 750 ml of Di Amore, and a 50 ml of Di Saronno. I sipped on the Di Saronno first. It was very good. There was a nutty flavor, but there was also a fruity flavor as well. Next, I sipped on some of the Di Amore. I can honestly say that I like Di Amore so much better. The almond flavor is there, as well as a hint of the aprocot. It's not overwhelming, and it's very smooth. The price is so reasonable. You would expect this to be twenty to twenty-five dollar bottle of liqueor. I will be keeping a bottle of this, along with my favorite pecan brandy (Rivulet), and my bourbons in my cabnet from now on.

3.8/5 A good amaretto for a great low price. This almond flavored liqueur goes well in coffee and in many cocktails that need a Dr Pepper like taste. It's always in my bar for coffee and amaretto cherry sours. Not as good as Disarrono, but also slightly different in flavor as Disarrono is more apricot than almond.

I'll give it a four even though my initial reaction was a five star... The reason is this is the first amaretto I've personally ever had, and now I'm hooked especially since this is just a budget brand, I look forward to giving higher shelf brands a try. Great introduction to amaretto at the very least.

Clearly trying to imitate disarrono, its a solid budget alternative. Not premium quality but serves as a good stand-in

Really good! A cheaper, but lower proof, alternative to DiSarrano!
