    benedictine liqueur

    On a hunt today I came across three very old bottles of Benedictine DOM liqueur for 15 bucks each. I'm not sure but they look from the 50's or 60's. Are these worth getting? Thanks in advance for the help. Randy.

    Liqueurs, unlike straight spirits, can go bad depending on the ingredients. I don't have any experience with this particular product, but simply because it is a liqueur I would say danger, Will Robinson. Leave them alone.

    Benedictine is a good arrow to have in your cocktail-making quiver, but it need not be old.

    The classic cocktail is B&B. Brandy and Benedictine. In fact, they now bottle it premixed.

    I believe it is necessary for a Singapore Sling.

    Re: benedictine liqueur

    Benedictine is something I haven't had in many years, but would like to try again.

    I propose, gentlemen, a B&B - Benedictine and Bourbon, in this case.

    Any takers? I'd suggest using a fairly smooth, brandy-like bourbon for starters, say ETL or FR NAS or EC 12.

    All comments gratefully received as this is something I'm planning to try.

    Benedictine and Bourbon, I'm with you Gary, I think it will work.
