Orangello Cream Liqueur

Category: Cream Liqueur

Date Tasted:
Country: New Zealand
Alcohol: 20%
Opaque creamy golden straw color. Creamy aromas of lemon yogurt, pound cake, marmalade, Swiss meringue, and cheesecake with a creamy, bright, very sweet full body and a silky, interesting, medium-length lemongrass, taro custard, almond sponge cake, and lemon blossom finish. Totally decadent; think of this as citrusy drinking custard.

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.
