Review: Reserva del Señor Almendrado

Mexico’s answer to Amaretto (and no, I didn’t know there was a challenge that needed answering either) is Almendrado, a tequila-based liqueur flavored strongly with almonds and bottled at 60 proof.

If you’re the type of person who can handle Amaretto on the rocks after dinner, you’ll have no trouble with Reserva del Señor Almendrado. (As far as I can tell, Reserva del Señor is the only company in the Almendrado business.) The tequila base is almost completely masked by the sugary sweet almond flavor, creating a dessert-like experience in a glass that’s heady with candied nuts. I’m sure you will find more differences among Amaretto brands than you will between Almendrado and, say, DiSaronno.

All that said, Reserva del Señor Almendrado is perfectly palatable in small doses and can work well in cocktails, I think. Pairing it with Licor 43 and Kahlua feels like a natural for a south-of-the-border themed dessert drink.

60 proof.

B / $22

    The Almendrado Tequila is very good, better than Amarreto on the rocks. At first it seems very sweet, but after a few drinks it goes down very smooth. I recomend it to all tequila lovers especially if you’re looking for something diiferent and new.

      I’ve only found one shop, as it appears to be off the market. Not cheap: http://www.a1liquor.com/almendrado-reserva-del-senor-almond-750ml/

    Interested in purchasing 3-4 bottles. Understand normally in $22 range, but willing to pay more of not outlandish.

    I am on the east coast and previously have had this shipped to me from California. The company not longer can provide service to me. How can I purchase this tequila. I may need a case

      As near as I can tell this is no longer being produced, but the company has another amaretto-like product called licor de almendras on the market. I have not found it for sale in the U.S., unfortunately.
