Default Figured How To Finish Off A Bottle Of Drambuie

I'm putting it on Breyers vanilla ice cream. Not as good as Grand Marnier but at least I'll be able to get the bottle out of my booze cabinet this way.


My latest blend is 1 part A'bunadh, 2 parts Balvenie D.W. 12, 3 parts Ardbeg 10. I think it's pretty good. ... remember, I can do this, I'm 1/2 Scot.

Bill, if you like Bailey's and Coffee, it's even better with a shot of Drambuie added. One of my favorite drinks, when I'm in that kind of mood.

I love coffee but can't drink it. It makes me tense.
I have a friend who can't get to sleep unless he has a cup of strong coffee before bed.
You gonna be in the hood this season?

Try a Bailey's & Coffee w/decaf, and add that shot of Drambuie!

I'm still trying to get there and have a couple bottles for you to try when I do.

I've got 2 bottles of Springbank 10, a Balvenie single barrel 15, and the omnipresent Corryvreckan, Ardbeg 10, and Balvenie DW 12.
The Kilchoman Machir Bay was too good to save.

I actually drank a whole bottle of Drambuie some years ago (not in one sitting, mind you) - I'm not sure how I managed it!

I'm getting peppermint and licorice in the mix of smells and flavors from Drambuie. I was surprised with the peppermint.

If you ever get some more for whatever reason, put a tablespoon over a couple scoops of Breyers "Natural Vanilla" (their original vanilla).

I have come to the realization that the new, present day Drambuie is a poor attempt to replace the old stuff. Just read the reviews of it online.
