Opaque creamy color. Attractive, toasty aromas of carrot cake and pumpkin pie and toasted coconut dream bar with a creamy, bright, moderately sweet medium-full body and a smooth, complex, medium-long sweet creamy horchata and graham cracker crusted mince meat pie finish. A delicious, complex and layered cream liqueur.

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.
