Review: McCleary White Chocolate Irish Cream Liqueur

Review: Adelaides Dreamsicle

Adelaides Dreamsicle is a cream liqueur made from Orange wine, natural flavors, and real dairy cream.  This is one of three new liqueurs recently released by Carr Spirits.  What is orange wine?  There are actually two types of orange wine.  One is made from white wine grapes that are left to macerate with their skins on.  This wine originated in the Republic of Georgia and about five years ago some wineries in the US started making it here.  The orange wine used in crafting Adelaides Dreamsicle is made from the other orange wine, which is made from fruit.  These orange wines are commonly used in RTD brands including Tekeen and BeatBox.  Like the previously reviewed, and home kitchen created Adelaides Coconut, and Adelaides Caramel Mocha Mojo, Adelaides Dreamsicle is made from genuine ingredients with no artificial flavors added.      Read more »

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.
