Review: Granny’s Gingerbread Cream

Step aside Irish creams and pumpkin-flavored liqueurs. Now you’ve got a new holiday liqueur to contend with: Granny’s Gingerbread Cream.

This is a new product from the Lousiana-based Sazerac company, “made with natural vanilla flavor and heavy creams sourced from Vermont dairies.”

The nose initially comes across as more of a crusty holiday bread — a nutty banana bread or fruitcake — or perhaps a gingersnap cookie, with a distinctly toasty note to it. On the palate, the gingerbread character evolves more fully, offering a ginger and baking spice note that has a strong resemblance to gingerbread, with perhaps the addition of some apples and orange peel — the fruit making a clearer showing on the finish. As expected, the vanilla-scented liqueur is both creamy and sweet, but it’s restrained on both fronts, ensuring your mouth doesn’t end up coated with gunk after you polish off a glass.

The label alone would make this completely suitable for your holiday dessert cart, but the authentic and fun flavor profile seals the deal.

25 proof.
