Hello, I wanted to contact you and thank you for the wonderful product you produce. My husband and I enjoy you Carolans Irish Cream weekly. We make coffee on Saturday and Sundays and love the creamer. We buy our bottle at Bob's Wine and Liquor in Knoxville, TN and the price is great.The reason I am writing is the bottle it self is not pouring freindly. Once it is open the spout becomes messey and leaks down the sides. We will continue to purchase your product because we love it but I... (read more)

I love everything about Carolans, the smooth caramel-like flavour. Baileys tastes powdery by comparison - yuk. I`ve told friends and relatives about it and converted many of them to Carolans since I always used to have it in the house for them to sample. However just lately I can`t find a local shop that stocks it, not even the big supermarkets. I was wondering why this is? It has more than doubled in price and I can`t afford £14 a bottle. I will have to put it on my Christmas list! (At... (read more)

I don't understand the 5* reviews, they are clearly to promote the drink. I bought it because it is cheaper than Baileys but wish I hadn't. After one taste I looked at the ingredients on the bottle and it lists 'made wine' which does not taste remotely like whisky. Despite being several percent less strong than Baileys, the unpleasant aftertaste of Grappa really persists. No wonder they try to cover this up with honey. Eugh. Also it is much thinner than Baileys, more like milk. It is... (read more)

Recently got an unopened 750ML bottle of Carolans Irish Cream from my in-laws that they had just bought, and went to pour some in a glass and nothing came out. Looked into the bottle and it looked like it was wax or was coated over. Upon further inspection the entire bottle was a giant chunk of goo. I put in a chopstick and stirred it around and when I pulled it out it was a bunch of little chunks. I am assuming wherever they got it from it had been exposed to excessive heat as the...

I used to drink Baileys regulary but as prices increased decided to make it a mission to find a cheaper alternative, after trying EVERY Irish Cream on the market Carolans came out tops!
The taste for me is far nicer than Baileys, smoother and added bonus much much cheaper!
I now treat myself to a large glass of Carolans daily and absoleutly love this drink.
I have recommended to many of my friends and they all agree it is the nicest irish cream.
Over the last couple of years i have... (read more)

I had been drinking the cheaper Irish Cream by O'Grady's, but because it didn't stock it in the local supermarket, I switched to Carolans and I am so glad that I did. The number one reason that gives it it's quality is the lovely after taste of the honey. Delightful and definitely now sticking with it...Obviously I would have liked to have known what it said on the bottle about the honey and no bitter after taste, but I suppose we have to buy it first to confirm that.

Alright in hot chocolate or coffee, but not even close to Baileys for flavor and a good kick of Irish whiskey. It was a bit watery and overly sweet. I could taste the honey and it just didn't work for me. The thing I disliked the most though was the strong, almost buttery flavor of the cream. Very sickly. For sure it's a bit cheaper than Baileys but like I said really only alright in a hot drink for my taste. (read more)

Carolans Irish Cream Liqueur is great in coffee, shots, or over ice. It's got a slight sweetness, but that makes it better in most drinks, helps to bring a unique appeal. This is the only Irish Cream I will buy. (read more)

Carolans Irish Cream Liqueur is smooth, good flavor; price much better than Bailey's. This is a good Irish Cream. It even holds up with ice and milk or cream to dilute it a bit. (read more)

Carolans Irish Cream Liqueur is sweeter than Baileys, but you can still taste the whiskey, so I really like it! And I liked the little bottles. We bought a 4 pack to go to an outdoor concert and chose Carolan's over Baileys because of the bottle design. Luckily we ended up liking it too!
Why is Baileys so expensive anyway?
I really like it. Why do we all analyse and criticize down to the last molecule. This is a good drink! (read more)

It's a great desert drink, and half the price of Baileys, and I think it tastes the same.
I serve Carolans Irish Cream Liqueur over crushed ice with a cherry. Women tend to love it more than men. (read more)

Very ' moreish' probably should be banned!!! MUST be bad for the waistline. It has a lovely, smooth, creamy, comforting texture and flavour, but Carolans Irish Cream Liqueur is a little on the sweet side. (read more)

Selling for roughly half the price of Baileys the flavor of Carolans Irish Cream Liqueur is betrayed by a synthetic caramel smell that leaves a slight aftertaste. Ingredients aren't as good, particularly the cream.
I would use Carolans in coffee or perhaps mixed drinks, but it is at best a mediocre Baileys clone. It does taste OK, but that is all. (read more)

My review keeps being truncated. To keep it short... Carolans Irish Cream Liqueur has an unpleasant residue, and I wouldn't buy it again! (read more)

Carolans Irish Cream Liqueur tastes almost as good as Baileys. Had a little more of a "bite". I suspect that the residue was because it was not that fresh. Even Baileys will go bad and turn to jelly if left in the refrigerator for a year. There is a number on the label which contains what looks like a date. If it is a date, the bottle I had was over a year old. Next time, I will look for a more recent date. (read more)

I recently opened a never opened 750 ml bottle of Carolans Irish Cream Liqueur and started to pour it after approximately 2 ozs. I poured but nothing more came out. I shook the bottle and all I heard was a clunk.
I stuck a knife into it and all I got was some type of jell.
I had recently finished drinking McCormick's Irish cream Liqueur and was able to get the full bottle out with no problem.
I have been drinking all types of Liquers as well as Irish cream for the most of my life. I am... (read more)
