Review: Ke Ke Key Lime Pie Cream Liqueur

Ke Ke Key Lime Pie Cream Liqueur was introduced several years ago and was called Ke Ke Beach Key Lime Liqueur at launch.  At that time it was produced at 30 proof and came in a white bottle.  The name has changed, and the packaging has changed.  It is bottled in Weston Missouri at the McCormick Distillery.  This is the sale distillery that produces 360 Vodka.  No ingredient list or product information is available on their website or bottle.  I’m a big fan of key lime pie and I would have liked to see an ingredient list that included fresh dairy cream, and key lime juice.  If those were the actual ingredients in Ke Ke, I think they would have been listed.

Review: Merrys White Chocolate Irish Cream

Merrys White Chocolate Irish Cream is one of five flavors Robert A Merry and CO. introduced in the summer of 2015.  The other flavors include Strawberry, Salted Caramel, Toffee Buttermint, and Pumpkin Spice.  These five flavors replace a full line of flavored Irish creams Merrys had previously produced.  White Chocolate was part of the previous line.  I don’t know if the new White Chocolate is made with the same recipe, or if the bottle was just changed.  The 2014 World Spirits Gold Medal Merrys has pictured on the new bottles label tells me this is the same formula.  Merrys White Chocolate is made with cream delivered from a creamery within 12 hours of leaving the farms gate, the finest aged Irish whiskey, grain spirits, and natural flavors.

Review: Woodys Northwoods Maple Bourbon Cream

Woodys Northwoods Maple Bourbon Cream is one of three bourbon creams recently released by Apollo Beverages.  The other varieties include Original Bourbon Cream, and Honey Bourbon Cream.  Woodys Maple is crafted with real maple syrup, bourbon aged in American oak barrels, and real dairy cream.  This is my second Woodys review, and the one I was most interested in trying, but maple flavored spirits have been hit or miss, and I felt Woodys Original was the safer pick.  Because Woodys Original tasted so good, I decided to give their Maple Bourbon Cream a try.

Review: Evangelines Pralines and Cream Liqueur

Evangelines Pralines and Cream Liqueur is Sazerac Co. take on a very southern treat.  They also produce a Praline Liqueur.  I don’t think this product is brand new but almost no information is available.  Pecans have become increasingly popular in flavored spirits, including several whiskeys and a couple of vodkas.  While there have also been a couple of pecan pie flavored spirits, Evangelines Praline Pecan Liqueur is the only other praline flavored spirit I’m aware of.

grannys-gingerbread-cream-liqueur-copyGrannys Gingerbread Cream Liqueur was just released.  It is produced and bottled by Sazerac in Louisville Kentucky.  Grannys  is made with neutral grain spirits, heavy creams sourced from Vermont dairies, and natural flavors including vanilla.  Fresh baked gingerbread cake served with a dollop of fresh whipped cream is one of my favorite holiday treats.  If Granny Gingerbread Cream Liqueur comes close to this flavor expression, I will be very happy.

Review: Ezra Brooks Bourbon Cream

ezra-brooks-bourbon-cream-copyEzra Brooks Bourbon Cream was recently released.  It is made with all natural cream and Kentucky straight bourbon.  Evan Brooks Bourbon was first created in 1957 by Frank Silverman to take advantage of the national shortage of Jack Daniels.  It featured the same square bottle as Jack, with a black and white wrap around label, and it was also bottled at 90 proof.  Though he claimed it was made at the Ezra Brooks Distilling Company the bourbon was actually distilled and sourced from the Hoffman Distillery in Lawrenceburg Kentucky.  It is now distilled at the Heaven Hill Distillery, and the brand is owned by St Louis based Luxco.  The bourbon is distilled with high quality corn, barley and rye at very controlled specific temperatures, and then aged in new charred American white oak barrels.  A charcoal filtering follows.  Read more »
