Drambuie Whisky Liqueur Reviews
Tasting Notes by Lew Bryson for Whisky AdvocateIntriguing 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

First drink in high school was scotch, which turned me off, then a decade later in ''68 got introduction in Pittsburgh ("Steel Town", appropriately) to Rusty Nail, my BFF since! Always hard to find in bars, the new 2010 bottle design compounded the problem - I''ve even pointed it out to clueless bartenders on occasion who thought they didn''t have it already sitting on their shelves!
Fantastic over ice or as long with soda oras a rusty nail I.e mixed with glenmorangie
Should the Drambuie bottle be kept in the fridge? Love the taste.
A few years ago I bought a bottle of Drambuie Cream - I have never seen it again :( it was smooth as silk and I made every drop count. Would love to find it again, Drambuie on ice has always been my drink.
Love Drambuie on the rocks, really hard to find in my area (high desert, in CA)
A few months ago one of my husband's uncles passed away and there was a toast to his memory made with Drambuie at the wake. All the adults were passed a shot glass for the toast. Did you know Drambuie tastes good with Praline Pecan ice cream? I'm really not one for drinking alcohol but it was very good. The widow at the wake warned people to sip it slowly...
Loved this for years, on ice in summer and raw in winter. Prefer the old cork but since bringing in the new bottle- the taste has changed with a greater emphasis on liquorice, perhaps too much.
As a wee lad we lived opposite the Drambuie office and bond at Easter Road, Leith, and 3 of my family worked for Drambuie. It was sad when the MacKinnon family had to sell their estate in Barnton Avenue, Edinburgh because of the drop in sales of Drambuie. I love Drambuie, sometimes a wee bit too much, but still feel the re-intro of the round bottle took away the the outward appearance. Of-course it never affected the taste of the spirit
I knew someday when I hit my 40's I would not drink beer as much. I thought, what will be my drink? I remembered a college roommate having a bottle. I recently started drinking it again. I have found my drink to take the edge off the day or relax during the weekend. It is like Christmas Eve in a bottle. Love this stuff.
