Vibrant, electric yellow with a faint, greenish hue. Rich anisette cookie, candied citrus peel, vanilla bean, and herb aromas. A round, silky entry leads to a lightly sweet medium-bodied palate with delicate star anise, vanilla cake frosting, and peppery herbs. Finishes with a long palate cleansing fade. Beautifully balanced with great texture and flavor.

Galliano used to be a vanilla bomb suitable only for lacing Harvey Wallbangers. But the new “L’Autentico” version has a more herbaceous profile. Still a sunny, vibrant yellow and with a silky, syrupy texture, the primary note is sweet anise, both on the nose and tongue, with a lingering clove, vanilla and licorice finish.

Sweet spearmint, anise, pine shaving and herbal aromas. Quite sweet from beginning to end, with hazelnut, mocha and white pepper flavors; clean finish.
