This Original Cabot Trail Maple Cream has listed as ingredients, cream or milk, maple syrup, sugar, alcohol, casein, rum, caramel and natural flavours. Alright, so some form of alcohol, and then some rum. Smells like butterscotch out of the bottle. Then, the maple notes come out with some nuttiness. The cream does not look as creamy as others, a little more milky. The taste shows a little alcohol with the blend of butterscotch (caramel and rum), maple and nuts. Pretty good all-around, and less expensive than the Wayne Gretzky cream one – which has whiskey.

Wayne Gretzky Canadian Cream Liquor

LCBO#: 519298
Price: $34.95
Made in: Ontario, Canada
By: Andrew Peller Limited

A Canadian version of the famous Baileys Irish Cream, from hockey’s greatest – Wayne Gretzky. Same tanned cream colour. The aromas show more cherries with nutty notes and hints of cocoa. The flavours are a blend of these – reminding me of amaretto. This one is excellent in coffee, as it is straight up. It is a little more than Baileys, which means way more than Carolans… but definitely worth trying. Will have again for sure. Basically, this is now our go-to Irish cream with coffee, as made here with fresh cream, but also very well-balanced all-around with the cherry notes added.
