"The color on Dolin Blanc is clear with the aroma more savory than fruity. That said, the intensity of the aroma is mild. The vermouth is moderately full and only slightly more sweet than acidic. The finish is a touch herbal, bitter, and spicy. If you're just getting into vermouth, especially if you're going want to drink them neat, this is a great one to start with. Otherwise, try with a splash of soda and a lemon twist. "
