Review: Kirkland Irish Cream Liqueur
Kirkland Irish Cream Liqueur is made in Ireland. Kirkland is the house brand of Costco, so you will need a membership to purchase this product. The listed ingredients include fresh dairy cream, Irish Whiskey, whey spirits, and hazelnut, but the label also promises chocolate and caramel flavor. Kirkland Irish Cream Liqueur is only available in 1.75 liter bottles, but at $15.99 a bottle, the price is comparable to a 750ml bottle of Baileys.It pours to a chocolate milk color. The aroma is milk chocolate, caramel, and whiskey. The feel is both thick and creamy. The creamy milk chocolate entry is joined by hazelnut. The chocolate flavor builds in intensity to a chocolate caramel peak. It fades with real Irish whiskey flavor that continues through a smooth caramel finish that has a hint of coconut. I was a little disappointed that Costco only sold a 1.75 liter bottle, until I tasted it. The double size bottle won’t be a problem.
