Member Name: Holland1
Advantages: Smooth, creamy liqueur
Disadvantages: Taste is confusing, more coffee than biscotti, leaves aftertaste
We had a bottle of this donated to us by a family member who received it at Christmas. My fiance and I both love Baileys, and were looking forward to trying this one as we've not tried all the different flavours yet.
A 70cl bottle of this costs between £12 to £15 at full price, although Tesco currently have these on offer costing £22 for 2 bottles. The bottle has the distinctive "Baileys" logo, but the picture and detail on the front is a little different to the original flavour, which is useful as we have both bottles on the go at the moment so we can distinguish between the two (even after having a few drinks!).
I was really keen to try this new flavour, but in reality it was a bit disappointing. Most people will be familiar with Baileys and the fact it is a cream liqueur with Irish whiskey. The biscotti flavour drink features a hint of biscotti biscuits which are Italian double -baked biscuits. Personally, I'm not overly familiar with biscotti biscuits, so I'm not really sure what I was expecting from this drink, but I thought it would be sweeter than the original and maybe taste of biscuits a little.
On pouring, the drink is exactly the same consistency as the original drink, and looks smooth and creamy. It is pale brown in colour, and you can smell the whiskey with a slightly nutty smell to it. The drink itself is very similar to the original, but you can definitely taste the hint of biscotti coming through. I was a bit confused by this taste though, because to me it tasted like coffee more than anything else. It's not overly unappealing, but does leave a bit of a nasty aftertaste which the original drink doesn't.
I don't think this drink offers much in addition to the original flavour. It's a slightly different taste but I'm not sure it works particularly well and I wouldn't bother drinking it again.
Summary: Won't be bothering with this again
