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.

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.

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.
