Opaque creamy taupe color. Aromas of ground roasted nuts, maple sugar, and cream with a soft, velvety moderately sweet medium-full body and a long, spice, fig, and light whisky accented finish. Smooth, rich creamy liqueur. Exceptional.

The nose is nutty; aeration brings out some spice. The palate entry continues with the nut-fest; at midpalate the flavors of cocoa bean, cafe au lait, Brazil nut and Christmas spices take flight. Concludes chocolaty.

Milky khaki brown/wet sand color. The familiar nutty nose of Baileys is always welcome in these parts; aeration brings out some of the spice, but while the dairy element remains hidden, the nuttiness prevails until the end. The palate entry continues the nut-fest begun in the bouquet; it’s in the midpalate where Baileys takes flight as full bodied flavors of cocoa bean, café au lait, Brazil nut, and Christmas spices pull the taste wagon in harmony. Concludes as chocolaty as any Irish Cream in the marketplace. A superbly made product that deserves its rank and Spirit Journal rating.
