LIQUEUR

LAZZARONI AMARETTO DI SARONNO

In decorative tin, Lombardy, Italy

The Lazzaroni family have been crafting this famous

liqueur since 1851 and are considered by many to

be the originators of the style. The family also operates

one of Italy’s most renowned bakeries – their Amaretto

cookies are made using a secret recipe that dates

to 1718. The Lazzaroni Amaretto is the only version of

this iconic liqueur that incorporates an infusion of

these famous cookies. You will encounter delectable

notes of marzipan, dried fruit and roasted almond,

alongwith spice tones. It’s no secret: thiswill be smooth

and velvetywith great complexity.

PORT

CÁLEM COLHEITA SINGLE HARVEST

TAWNY PORT 2000

DOP, Portugal

TASTING NOTE: ... bottled in November 2015 ...

Sauve, elegant and perfectly balanced, this has a

sweet edge and finishes with waves of fruit and sugar

mingling nicely. It is balanced by some freshness

as well. Neither the most complex nor concentrated

Tawny in terms of mid-palate depth – it is rather

young, relatively speaking – this nonetheless shows

reasonable concentration of flavors for its age and

nice aromatics. Its lushness is nicely balanced by its

structure. It lingers nicely on the finish, too, and that

finish is quite delicious. This is very pretty and rather

sexy. If you like them on the fresher and younger side,

this is a great choice at an affordable price. Drink
