Anyone know how Benedictine compares to B&B?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
This is in relation to the bottled version. I've had a bottle of vintage benedictine that had sat in a cupboard for years, and I loved the stuff. But I never tried the B&B cocktail, since it's basically a way of making the overall concoction dryer, and I didn't need that. I was mixing it in various drinks to great success, and occasionally having some straight.

But the lousy ABC system in NC doesn't stock Benedictine, just the bottled B&B, which pisses me off to no end. To get Benedictine, I'd have to order a case of 12, and that's a little on the pricy side for something I use at a fairly slow rate.

So my question is how the bottled B&B compares, and if anyone has suggestions for similar liqueurs I might enjoy. Preferably not more expensive than the B&B.

B&B is Benedectine mixed with Brandy and its completely different from straight Benedectine. They are not interchangeable in a recipe. I don't think there is a straight substitute for Benedectine.

That's what I was afraid of.

But are there any liqueurs similar (not necessarily knockoffs or particularly close in flavor, but made in a similar spirit) I could try?
