Review: Els Iced Coffee

by Jeff Ellingson

Els Iced Coffee was recently released.  It is one of three Els Iced spirits recently released.  The other flavors include Els Iced Chocolate, and Els Iced Chocolate Mint.  Els Iced Coffee is named for Golfer Ernie Els, who Founder Cayce Kerr first met on the golf range at Royal Birkdale in 1989.  They have been friends every since.  While Cayce is a caddie by trade, it was not until the Spring of 2016 that he became Ernie Els caddie.  Els Iced Coffee is made with orange wine, fresh cream from a dairy in Wisconsin, a blend of natural coffee flavors, and caramel color. Els Iced Coffee pours to a milky beige color.  The aroma in coffee ice cream with a caramel backing.  The sweet coffee ice cream entry is creamy without having a thick mouth feel.  Natural vanilla and fresh dairy cream arrive at the midpoint, before fading with butterscotch and sweet orange wine flavor.  It finishes with a tingle of alcohol, a touch of warmth, and a gentle orange wine burn leaving a lightly bitter coffee taste.
