Bols Advocaat Egg Liquor

LCBO#: 8532
Price: $23.10
Made in: Amsterdam, Netherlands
By: Lucas Bols Amsterdam B.V.
ABV: 15%

This Dutch liquor is quite similar to eggnog. A very thick eggnog that is more eggs than cream. Warm deep yellow in colour with an orange hue. The nose shows some sweetness from the sugar and blended with the brandy, which gives a little alcohol nose warming. The taste shows the brandy a lot with the alcohol that lingers on the palate. The egg richness is there creaming things. Not as delicious to drink alone because of this, but does well in coffee. Pretty good liquid custard that seems to be popular to make Snowball drinks, or can be topped up with 7-up to make an orange creamsicle.

Amarula Vanilla Spice Cream Liquor

LCBO#: 635615
Price: $22.55
Made in: South Africa
By: Southern Liqueur Co.
ABV: 15.5%

A nice touch on the already delicious Amaruly Cream Liquor – with Madagascan vanilla and African ginger. Already our second bottle of this, as it mixes very well with coffee. The spices are so nice. It does have a little egg nog smell once it breath out. The spices and sweet creaminess are well-blended together. Again, the same for flavours with the vanilla base that is quite smooth. Great on the rocks or like mentioned – with coffee. We really, really like this one. Love the original one, but this is delicious and works well for fall. Hope this one stays.

Baileys Salted Caramel

LCBO#: 400259
Price: $31.05
Made in: Ireland
By: Agave R & A Bailey & Co Ltd
ABV: 17%

Salted Caramel seems to be popular nowadays, as I see it in lots of stuff, even in beers. Still, pretty much the same aromas of milky butterscotch. The taste is where is the butterscotch slightly turns on the caramel side. The saltiness though is quite mild, if there at all. Very, very close to the original Baileys, so wish it had more salt added to it. Was a nice try, but not sure we will see this one again.

RumChata Cream Liqueur

LCBO#: 380865
Price: $31.00
Made in: USA
By: Agave Loco Brands
ABV: 13.7%

An American Cream Liqueur made from Caribbean rum and real dairy cream. For those who like spices, this cream liqueur is for you. Cinnamon, light nutmeg, all-spices, all-blended by vanilla. Even pumpkin puree is felt, even though there is none. It does still make a nice spiced cream liqueur for this month of Halloween. Spices up the creaminess in coffee, which makes a big change from Baileys. On its own, it is sweet, but not too crazy syrupy. More creamy and not sticky on the tongue. Yes, this rum-based cream liqueur is quite good. We have bought several bottle since our first try. Highly recommended.

Baileys Strawberries & Cream

LCBO#: 551598
Price: $30.95
Made in: Ireland
By: R & A Bailey & Co Ltd

A new limited edition of Baileys – Strawberries & Cream. As we like our Baileys cream in our coffee, this one is no exception if you do like the creamy strawberry stuff. Aromas are exactly what you expect with the strawberry notes, the creaminess and light alcohol. The taste is much of the same with a nice berry fruitiness over the sweetness, balanced by the cream. Very good on its own, or in your morning warm beverage. Comes with a recipe to do a colada with coconut rum or vodka. This one is much better than the salted caramel version they did not long ago.

Chantilly French Cream

LCBO#: 424044
Price: $30.05
Made in: Ontario, Canada
By: Maverick Distillery Limited

Comes in a beautiful, very classy black bottle with everything that says – French (just like it is written French Cream). The only thing, this is made right here in Ontario. Very nicely done as the typical butterscotch notes are present, with the hints of cherries and almonds. Light alcohol shows, but not too excessive. Same in the taste but the chocolate shows up here. Smooth, silky mouthfeel with some nice nuttiness. Everything here is well-done, except the price usually represents imports. Maybe because the sugars are organic. Still, not sure what alcohol they use in this one. Will retry though.

Cabot Trail Maple Cream

LCBO#: 462424
Price: $29.95
Made in: Quebec, Canada
By: Les Spiritueux Ungava

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.
