ABV 11: Irish Cream Tasting

We’re busting out the Irish Cream in ways we didn’t even know we could. We’ve always assumed Bailey’s Irish Cream was the only product on the market in our region but we were wrong. We picked up Saint Brendan’s, Irish Manor, Emmets, Ryan’s and put them to the test with our old faithful, Bailey’s Irish Cream.

Ryan’s Irish Cream may be a product of Maine, USA. That may not be fully available across the US and abroad, we found that out after reading the label post-recording.

      I can swing through Mass. and see if I can find it. Or, double check the NH store.

    We got introduced to Baileys back about 10 years ago, when a friend that owned a bar in Virgin Islands had to live with us for about a year due to a hurricane. Baileys and coffee became part of my morning ritual.
    However, due to it’s cost, I experimented and have settled on the Saint Brendans. Only $12.99 here. Check out their site.
    Old Irish toast that they left off:

    And, tonight we did a tasting with coffee liqueur and found out that there are many great products out there besides Kahlua. It’s all about learning and tasting 🙂

    Bought a bottle of Emmet’s and could not figure out how to open it. Ended up cutting off the whole top, cutting my finger and then had to store the liquid in jars or whatever I had around the kitchen. The bottle is now a vicious weapon with a razor sharp foil top ready to cut anyone who comes near.
    I hope the recycled guys wear gloves!

    Has anyone else had this problem?
