Baileys Almande

LCBO#: 455428
Price: $31.95
Made in: Illinois, USA

This version of Baileys is made in the United States. It is also dairy free. The first thing we noticed was that even recommended for coffee, it did not seem to blend well with all the coffees we tried. Mild chunks – if you know what I mean. Made with almond oil, and not from almond milk. Vodka is the alcohol used in this one. The nose is quite nutty with the mild vanilla aromas. The taste has the cherry notes at first found in most Irish Cream, with the almonds lingering on the tongue. It is a nice sipper, but not one we would mix with our coffee Sunday mornings – like we do religiously.

Baileys Pumpkin Spice

LCBO#: 519272
Price: $29.95
Made in: Ireland, United Kingdom
By: R & A Bailey & Co Ltd

This limited edition Pumpkin Spice Baileys Irish Cream is a first here for Autumn 2017. We love things that are pumpkin and spices. Things that reminds us of Halloween. The base has the nice, smooth and creamy butterscotch notes in mouth and nose. The spices are what is different here. The aromas give out a tad of a nod to the eggnog that will come after this release is gone. The spices are a little more present in the taste, warming things with the alcohol. You can almost taste pumpkin purée, even though there is none. Great in coffee. Hope they release this every year.
