ALDI – O’Donnells Irish Cream – Food Review

by

ALDI-Odonells_IrishCreamFrontIt’s wine?

That’s what the bottle says, grape wine and whey neutral spirits.  I understand way neutral spirits, but whey?  Well it seems whey neutral spirits is alcohol made from the whey left over from cheese making   That is interesting.  But in the end distilled alcohol is distilled alcohol and works the same way in our bodies regardless of source.  So we should stay neutral when judging this product based on ingredients.

As for the grape wine, well I’m confused again.  It sure doesn’t taste like wine.  But perhaps this is also distilled into a more potent alcohol?  Check out their website and try to figure this out for yourself.

Now the cream part.  There’s not a mention of cream as an ingredient on the label.  That’s three mysteries in one bottle.  Not bad at about $3 a mystery.

But this review isn’t about how it’s made, this review is about how it tastes.  One of the good things about most alcoholic beverages is that after the first portion, the next portion(s) generally seem to taste better.  And so it is here.  When used to spike and smooth out a cup of coffee in the morning (that’s a holiday tradition at this house), the first cup tastes a little sharper when compared with some other Irish Creams.  But the second and third cups go down just fine.

For $8.99 a bottle, it may not be 100% as good as the Irish Creams that cost up to twice as much, but it’s approaching at least 90% as good.  No matter how they do it, it seems to work.

Price $8.99   Calories – yes, but not specified

    Like the other comment above, I am guessing this is a bit like Baileys? Worth a pop at that price! Thank you for the tip.

    There’s a stamp:
    { 10/84 13:37 2?? } this is what I can make out
    What does this stamp mean? Can someone let me know?

      It’s a great way to start a holiday morning, with a touch, or more, in the coffee. But, preferably not ALDI coffee – not so good by my tastes.

    Style of the label reminds me of Baileys cream.

    i was also confused about the Whey. Like Steveo said, it is almost as good and in coffee or hot chocolate-can you really taste the difference?
