Hello,

I would advise you not to as it would mislead the public into thinking that your product was associated with balsamic vinegar from Italy.

May I help further?

i need to know whether it is legal for me to call a product that is not balsamic, "balsamicky flavour" ie does the -ky denote an adjective rather than a description of a flavour?

Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
Yes it is.
