Intriguing herbal/medicinal nose, with notes of pepper, grass, dried hay, fried flowers, orange peel, and licorice. Sweet but lively and light on the palate, as the orange explodes and the whisky boldy appears, wrapped in honey and herbs. The finish is herbal and sweet as the whisky strolls off into the distance. Overall, quite complex and rewarding. 90 Points

Since 1996 - when I was offered a Drambuie on a flight from Switzerland to Canada - I drink and appreciate this marvellous brand regularly. It also is my best medicine for various diseases (my dad - medical doctor in heaven - will understand me...) My wife and my kids know they never go wrong bringing me a bottle from duty-free shop when returning from a journey.

I ever recommend: Dont drink Drambui cold, with ice or however cooled down ! I really tried and figured out, the taste is best, just with room temperature. ok if you live in alaska that amounts often to a fridge - try you self and judge.

New bottle looks cheap. Luckily, I saved one of the '70s type. Understandably, it's empty. So, I use the new bottle as a refill-charge for the old one. It is a messy business. Bring back the old bottle, please...

Excellent drink, new bottle is smart and reflects the modern age. You have to move with the times and this is what you have done. Keep up the good work.

At the age of 74 I have been drinking the "Golden Nectar" for more years than I care to remember, then when they changed the bottle I phoned, and then I wrote to our friends in Scotland, to say "it just did not look (we drink with our eyes) or taste the same so I therefore agree with all the previous comments "Bring Back The Old Bottle"

Please bring back the old bottle. It's just not the same without it.

Our two great friends moved to CA and left us (in TX) with a bottle of Drambuie. Tried it tonight - first on the rocks then followed up with a "Rusty Nail" - equal parts of Drambuie and Scotch over ice with a twist. I've never been a scotch fancier until now. The RN was mighty tasty! As writing this, I'm savoring the ice - coated with the remnants of the beverage! Cheers! p.s. I have a stubby bottle with a screw on top - collectors item??

truly the best drink on the planet. Have and old bottle and will keep it till I pass. The new bottle doesn't have the same character of the old. Long live tradition.

Please, back to the old bottle !

Just an adjective: Perfect. More than a whiskey, and I love it. And this new bottle is beautiful and more modern than previous!

Nasty cheap bottle. Looks like Mexican lager.
- GrumpyOldFart, 18th Dec '11
Do like I did and save one old bottle, buy more DD and pour it into the old bottle for display and for serving to guests (if you choose to share). If you don't have an old bottle ask a friend or local pub to see if you can have theirs when empty.

Hate the new bottle. No character. Just for cheaper production.

Love Drambuie very much and had the privilege of having it in the Highlands too. Having the Drambuie 15 for the first time. Always had it straight but am eager to try the Rusty Nail.
