We were lucky enough to try the brand new, Disaronno Riserva; a unique blend of Scottish whisky and Disaronno – aged in Marsala barrels from the Cantine Florio in Marsala, Sicily.
The result is an initially sweet touch of spice softened by light hints of vanilla-almond, with luscious fruity overtones and a finish that is peppery, recalling dried fruit with a touch of intriguing Madeira. We like ours on the rocks.
Presented in a beautiful sleek black wooden case, only 10,000 bottles will be produced worldwide.
