This superior Amaretto made by master distiller Bepe Tosolini is a cut above the rest. Unlike other Amaretto's, which are usually made from an apricot kernal concentrate, this one is made by re-distilling spirit with real crushed almonds. I would not be surprised if there is not a touch of orange peel and some coffee used as well - there is definitely a hint of orange citrus fruit on the nose, as well as almond aromas, and some coffee flavours on the palate. The Mascarada has a complex palate and a realtively dry finish. A serious Amaretto, perhaps for those that find some Amarettos a bit too sweet.
