Review: Spirit of Liberty American Cream Liqueur

Share

If we strictly reviewed packaging here, well, we’d have some choice words about the bottle for Spirit of Liberty, which is mostly comprised of a plastic Statue of Liberty atop a small vial of bourbon cream liqueur. I’m not sure what those words might be yet, but I will note that it’s available in larger bottles without the curious accouterments if you’re serious about drinking this stuff.

The idea here makes sense: Irish whiskey has its own cream liqueur based on the spirit (Bailey’s, Carolan’s, etc.), so why not bourbon, too? Mix cream with a little Kentucky whiskey and here’s what you get.

Spirit of Liberty, I have to say, is far sweeter than any Irish cream liqueur I’ve tried, and I wonder if it isn’t artificially sweetened to make it so overwhelming (it is interestingly also 1/3 less caloric than other cream liqueurs, according to the makers). Vanilla is the primary flavor of the liqueur, but additional notes are fleeting and ultimately elusive.

    LOL. I love it! It looks like a Jeff Koons piece.
