I've had Leroux brand stuff before. Some of it was pretty good for the price, & some were a disappointment. This is very sweet, sugary, with a hint of fruit flavor. It did not taste like apricot at all. It had a fruit flavor, but didn't taste like any particular fruit. Tasted more like a blackberry schnapps by another company that I had than anything else. Could be artificial flavor, or just not enough flavor to tell with all the sugar & alcohol. Not bad for the price for 70 proof. But if I specifically wanted apricot flavor, I'd try something else. May buy again when I want a fair blackberry schnapps, because it tastes almost the same.
