Lovely, natural flavour
Posted by Umbridge on Dec 21, 2013
A good, pure vanilla extract can make all the difference. This extract has a vanilla scent and flavour that seems much more complex than other brands. As with other higher end extracts, you don't need to use as much, so the slightly higher price is worthwhile.
Good unsweetened vanilla

Less than a decade ago, all the good vanilla extracts were just hard liquor and vanilla. Vanilla is mostly perceived through its aroma, and like salt, it strengthens whatever flavors it accompanies. When people taste vanilla straight out of the bottle, and it will taste strongly alcoholic because of the strengthening effect of the vanilla on the alcohol's flavor. Once added to baked goods or diluted in drinks, the alcohol is no longer noticeable. I can't eat corn products, and I cook for diabetics who need to avoid excess sugars, so the recent addition of corn syrup to extracts is extremely frustrating, especially since it's grown out of the misconception that quality extracts should be sweet and delicious out of the bottle. Aroma is more pertinent than flavor for determining quality extracts. Singing Dog has a moderately strong vanilla aroma, and it's successfully added the flavor that my baked goods and hot chocolate have been missing. I think I would like it to be a little heavier, but it works.
smell and taste great

I didn't like the alcohol, I could not get rid of the ethanol flavor/aroma. The vanilla is nice though

This extract has a pleasant taste, but you may need to use a little more than most other extracts if you like a full flavor. I'll purchase it again.
