Quite enjoyable in a Rusty Nail, this spirit is flavorful and pleasing.

simple cocktail: pour Drambuie over ice.
it's a easy drinking liquid.
could be better if the pricing was more wallet friendly.

Drambuie should be enjoyed differently depending on how you react to intense flavors. Sipping on ice after dinner in the tiniest amounts combines sweet and scotch flavors as a syrupy delight. (Yes, the tiniest sips will do. Use cubes, never crushed ice, in order to provide chill with minimal dilution.)
Just as butter can be wonderful in a recipe and disgusting eaten alone, some people will never enjoy Drambuie straight. For them, one part Drambuie to two parts Vodka or Scotch makes for a flavorful drink without overwhelming sweetness.
Yes the "new design" bottle is a disappointing bore that should result in the firing of someone in marketing. But the contents are as enjoyable as ever.

This whisky liqueur is a more mature competitor of other similar liqueurs like Wild Turkeys American Honey. Its not as overly sweet or honey-focused, but it does possess greater depth of flavor. That said, it doesnt excite me much at all. Drambui is definitely best after a meal, but theres no challenge here. This is whisky for those who hate whisky, and nothing more.

I find it to be immensely enjoyable after a meal, and not competing with any other alcohol. Definitely not mixed or even on the rocks, and just very lightly chilled. The initial taste is a very satisfying, saturated honey flavour, followed by the unique spice combinations that provide a VERY lingering aftertaste. The "enthusiasm" of the overall character is just a little too much for many people, so savor it slowly and explore the myriad tastes. Drambuie is DEFINITELY not designed to be gulped, unless youre the type who enjoys playing with sweating dynamite.

When I drink it, it makes me think of...
Drinks after dinner as I repose in the library...
It tastes best when you...
Additional Comments: Drambuie is not meant to be imbibed on its own and should be taken AFTER dinner. While it could be had on the rocks, I'm convinced it tastes best mixed, preferably with scotch (making a Rusty Nail). It also plays nicely with a vodka, vanilla flavored vodka, and coffee.
