Opaque amber color. Creamy aromas and flavors of powdered sugar and walnut, sweet egg custard, molasses cookie, and mint jelly with a thick, soft, sweet fat body and a seamless, brief tarragon, orange peel, and peanut skin finish. A nice cream liqueur with a subtle herbaceousness for wintertime treats.

Serve in a Rocks Glass
Cream Liqueur, quite simply is a liqueur that has dairy cream added to a liquor. The most famous examples come from Ireland; they have a base of Irish whiskey; there are also version from Scotland, Canada, the US and several other countries.

Most of these cream liqueurs are in the 14% to 17% alcoholic range and are medium-sweet with flavors such as nougat, praline and chocolate. Most are served over the rocks. The category took off in the 1970s and although not as wildly popular today, it has remained strong.
