Disadvantages: A Bit Thin
I'm a very big fan of Baileys which is probably the best known Irish Cream Liqueur out there. It's very expensive though at over £10 for a standard bottle so I was pleased to notice in Tesco that there's an alternative available for much less money. This stuff costs £3.99 a bottle and my Mrs informs me that it's been around for a while, I've just never noticed it before now. I thought it had to be worth a go at that price.
This is basically a cheap version of Baileys. It's an Irish Cream Liqueur with a strong smell of whiskey and a really smooth creamy texture even if it was a tad on the thin side. I noticed instantly that this product differs from Baileys, my old favourite, but I have to say it doesn't differ anywhere near the amount of the price difference.
I found this was absolutely delicious as an evening drink served cold on the rocks and I wouldn't hesitate to purchase this again in the future. I think it would be ideal for family functions infact due to the popularity of Baileys in our house usually and the fact that we always run out of it before the night is finished. At £3.99 a bottle, I can't see us running out of this stuff!
If you're a fan of Cream Liqueurs or a Baileys fan specifically, this stuff is well worth a try. It does taste slightly thinner and a little different to the premium equivilant but it's really not that far from it. Not nearly a tenner's worth different at least.
Summary: Highly Recommended for the Price
