Good Booze. Great Value Great Drink
Not only is this an amazing value, but it’s better than the “name brand”, Bailey’s. Whether cold from the refrigerator or used in a classic cocktail, this offering from Costco Kirkland shone brightly. The flavors of chocolate, caramel, and cream were well-balanced with the Irish whiskey within. So smooth and silky, you may put this back on your list of after-dinner treats. Great drink, terrific value. BTW they say it keeps for a year in your fridge. Grab one.
