Buy it? If you like a sweet after-dinner drink. It’s terrific over ice cream.

History

There’s minimal history on the Ezra Brooks Bourbon Cream liqueur, although I did find an interesting tidbit. This year, Ezra Brooks, which makes some of the finest bourbons around, kicked up the bourbon cream proof to 33% from 25%. Us math nerds know that’s a percent change of a whopping 32%, and that’s … a lot. 

Tasting Notes

Let’s taste it:

Summary

In my infancy days of drinking, I thought Amaretto was the bee’s knee, as the kids used to say. I had a bottle under my kitchen sink. I didn’t have a bar. Just the Amaretto. 

Over time as my taste buds developed, I swore off liqueurs for drinking but did use them in cooking. But the Ezra Brooks Bourbon Cream liqueur seems suitable for an after-dinner drink for those that like sweetness. 

The Ezra Brooks Bourbon Cream liqueur’s thick, butterscotch-colored pour threw me because I didn’t know what to expect. A couple of tastes in, and I finally got it. This is a dessert drink for non-bourbon drinkers who want something that tastes like a spiked chocolate shake. The real win comes when you pour it over vanilla ice cream and get this kicked-up sundae. I can see it taking Bananas Foster to a new level. I’m also curious how this will go with homemade brown sugar syrup. 

Conclusion

This isn’t for bourbon lovers but a segment of the market that wants a drinkable liqueur at a reasonable price. If you find Sauternes too sweet (I don’t!), this is worth trying, especially for the price. At a minimum, buy some ice cream. You won’t be sorry.?
