I’ve been curious about Dolin – I’ll definitely have to try out both the dry and blanc for myself. I’m almost hoping I like Dolin better than Vya since it is considerably cheaper at the local wine shop!
Thanks again, and glad you like my alias!

As far as Blanc vs. Dry Vermouth, Dolin Blanc is sweeter and more spice and herbal intensive. Almost like a clear version of a sweet vermouth. If you’re using it in cocktails that call for French or Dry Vermouth, buy the Dolin Dry.

On the other hand, the Dolin Blanc is a fantastic product, which mixes well into cocktails that sort of fall between the Martini and Martinez. I have a hard time not recommending that you pick it up.

Not knowing my vermouths too well, what is the difference between the Dolin dry and blanc? I haven’t had either, but plan on picking a bottle up for a friend/martini lover. Should I go with dry or blanc? I’ve been using Vya dry myself and haven’t bothered trying the Dolin. Thanks!
