Review: Disaronno Velvet Cream Liqueur

It only took about 500 years, but iconic amaretto brand Disaronno has its first line extension: Disaronno Velvet, a cream liqueur.

Velvet is, put simply, a cream version of standard Disaronno. It has that same brisk and sweet almond aroma that immediately evokes Disaronno liqueur, well-sugared but otherwise straightforwared. The palate comes across as a cross between amaretto and Irish cream — nutty with that boozy almond extract note, but with strong overtones of vanilla and chocolate. Sweet but less sweet than you’d think, the lengthy finish hints at dinner mints.

Baileys and amaretto are natural companions — add Kahlua and you’ve got an Orgasm shot — so there’s no reason not to put them together in this way in one bottle. It’s a simple little beverage, but to be honest, I like this stuff way more than I ever expected I would.

(Like most cream liqueurs, Velvet has a shelf life of about 6 months after opening.)

34 proof.
