Okay, maybe it's not exactly unbelievable, because it is exactly what good maraschino cherries looked and tasted like when I was a kid. They are dark. The syrup is thick and dark. The aroma is the essence of cherries and their presence in a cocktail is magical -- taking cherries from a flavorless, if colorful, garnish, to another layer of delicious bouquet and taste.

Unless you are over 45, it is quite possibly you never tasted a maraschino cherry like these

While the price is not inexpensive, the value, in terms of what is added to any drink or recipe with these, is quite high. Two of these cherries will outpower a dozen of those bright red "things". And don't let cocktails be the only use. Your children deserve to experience what a "cherry" cola or other soft-drink "should" taste like, or an over-the-top sundae or banana split. Similarly, I believe I am going to get my wife to make a Schwartzwalder Kirchtorte (Black Forest Cherry Cake) with these to really experience the sublime bliss that is cherry and chocolate.

They muddle in cocktails extremely well and infuse the entire drink with an exquisite hint of cherry. Old Fashionds and Manhattans become more sublime, and cherries suddenly hold their own with oranges, lemons and other fruits in a cocktail.

1-23-2013 -- NOTE ON SHELF LIFE
Unopened, these will last a year. A open jar of these cherries should last in your bar about 3-6 months. However, this past year I decided to store them in the refrigerator. It did not hurt the flavor but after a while, the syrup started to harden into granulated sugar. So, if you plan on using a jar in 3 months or so, leave them covered in your bar. If you think it will take longer, refrigerate, but let the cherries and syrup come out to "breathe" at room temperature before using. The syrup and muddling will infuse your cocktails better then.

I purchased this product after reading the great reviews here on Amazon and on cocktail-oriented websites. Having spent a good deal of time experimenting with different recipes to make my own cocktail cherries, I was eager to try this classic product. I very much expected to love these. Unfortunately, I found these a little disappointing, and I thought I'd share a more measured evaluation with other Amazon readers.

Visually: The Luxardo cherries look great; nearly black in color and coated in a very thick dark red syrup. They're also small; maybe half the diameter of a bing cherry that you might buy in the produce aisle. I think they're somewhat smaller than the commonly available cheap pink maraschino cherries.

Aroma: They smell very nice. Like cherry soda, I guess.

Texture: They're quite firm. When you bite into them, there's a slight "pop" before they dissolve into sugary goo. It's a little weird if you're expecting the texture of fruit.

Taste: This is my big complaint. Yes, there's a nice cherry flavor, but it's completely overshadowed by the fact that they are SWEET. I mean unbelievably, mind-blowingly, unpleasantly SWEET. They are a mouthful of pure cherry-tinged SUGAR. I hadn't quite realized this from reading the earlier reviews, and I was expecting something like a slightly sweetened natural cherry flavor. Make no mistake: this product is candy, and it no longer has any similarity to the texture and flavor of an actual cherry.

I purchased this product to dress up our cocktails, but I don't really want to drop a lump of candy into my manhattans.

Once you've tried these, you will never go back to using those bleached-and-dyed red cherries. For a Manhattan, use these cherries, a nice rye, and "Antica Formula" sweet (red) vermouth by Carpano - you won't be disappointed.

Honestly, these are just okay. Obviously they blow the socks off of some really low quality, HFC-infested, brined-to-tastelessness maraschino cherries, but many artisan cherries are way better. The Luxardo cherries are so damn sweet it's hard to enjoy them, even after you wash off all the syrup. They are very firm and are in a thick syrup.

The Trader Joe's brand 24 oz Dark Morello cherries from Germany are way better. They're only $2.50, they're plumper but less firm, have a much more balanced flavor, and are in a much, much lighter syrup. I can kill a jar of the TJ's brand in one sitting after pouring the syrup down the sink; doing the same with the Luxardo might make me sick and would definitely break the bank.

They cost so much and they are so good. Upped the price of our Friday night old fashions, but worth it.

I enjoy a quality cocktail. Two. As you know, the finest ingredients make the most excellent drinks. Marachino cherries, key garnishes in a variety of cocktails, come in a variety of qualities. Most offer up a glisteningly red cherry, a little crushed, with plenty of sugary matrix.

The Luxardo cherries are similar, but have a much thicker, darker purple-black syrup, but the same crushed little cherry. I did not find the consistency or quality of the cherry itself to be of any lesser or greater quality than your average marachino cherry. The syrup, however, was less run-of-the-mill. It's not nearly as sweet and imparts some distinct cherry flavor. The syrup is drastically different from normal marachino cherry syrup, so be carefull with those old fashioneds and manhattans. I did enjoy a fine drizzle of it over a frothy bourbon sour (yum). It may do well as an expensive substitute and impart a change of hue to a cocktail or two. You'll find a fine use, i'm sure...

Worth the price? ummm...not on my salary (and consumption rate). I was expecting something impressive. These were not.
