Chartreuse has a very strong characteristic flavor. It is very sweet, by turns both spicy and pungent. By way of comparison, it is quite similar to Liquore Strega or Galliano. Its taste varies depending upon the serving temperature. It is often served on ice, but can be added to cocktails or added to a mixer. Some mixed drink recipes call for only a few drops of Chartreuse, so assertive is its flavor. Though the flavor is highly complex, many[who?] find it most distinctly reminiscent of anise, which is easily discernible as one of the ingredients.

Chartreuse and Benedictine, named after the Carthusian and Benedictine orders, respectively. Chartreuse (yes the color is named after the liquor) tastes like brandy mixed with life-savors. Benedictine, however, is reminiscent of anise (liquorish) and is quite delicious, with or without brandy added to it.

Sherry is a fortified wine, not a liquor, and the best way to describe its taste is "nutty" like hazelnuts, almonds, cashews even.
