Galliano is sweet with vanilla-anise flavour and subtle citrus and woodsy herbal under notes. The vanilla top note differentiates Galliano from other anise-flavoured liqueurs such as Sambucca, Pernod, or Anisette. It is used both as a digestivo (meant for drinking after heavy meals), and as an ingredient for cocktails, most notably the Harvey Wallbanger, Golden Cadillac, and Golden Dream.
