For whisky and Scotch fans, we recommend trying the new expression, Drambuie 15 as it brings the whisky cues to the forefront as compared to the original Drambuie.
However, the elixir which Drambuie fans have come to love, is still there in a smaller dosage allowing a refined message of smoke and sweet to speak.
Old Speyside malts with soft, complex fragrance and flavors to complement the aromas of the secret DRAMBUIE recipe.
A soft mouthfeel and delicious for sipping and savoring either neat or over ice. With the retail price of $56 (1 liter, 43% ABV), it brings a much different flavor than you might expect.
Here is our review…
Drambuie 15 Year Old Speyside Whisky Liqueur Review
Distillery: The Drambuie Liqueur Co.Ltd, Edinburgh, Scotland
Age: 15 year old Speyside Malt blended with Drambuie’s elixir
Proof: 86 Proof, 43% ABV
Nose: Herbacious qualities much like the original Drambuie along with light peat, lavender and burnt sugar almost “brûlée” type aroma.
Taste: The sugar comes in first then goes straight to the heather honey along with the more pronounced notes of a silky Scotch whisky.
There is a fruitiness, maple syrup, walnuts, pralines and vanilla. Pleasant complexities that compliment the Scotch notes.
One member of our tasting pannel said this Drambuie 15 reminded her a bit of Lochan Ora Scotch Liqueur which is made by Chivas Brothers, and she likes the Drambuie 15 even better. We believe Lochan Ora is only available in Europe and the U.K.
Finish: Cleans up well with a lingering Scotch and sweetness.
