Review: Jackson Morgan Southern Cream Salted Caramel

jackson morgan Salted Caramel BottleCream liqueurs are on the rise — and here’s a new one that’s made from Tennessee whiskey… in Kentucky! No, irony isn’t one of the six flavors available — which include Whipped Orange Cream and Bread Pudding(!) — but we did get a taste of the Salted Caramel expression of Jackson Morgan (named after the two brothers who founded the company).

Let’s pour a glass from this mini jug decanter and see how it fares.

The nose doesn’t immediately come across as all that different from an Irish cream, flecked perhaps with a touch of butterscotch. The body brings out the caramel, though it’s not particularly salted in any discernible way. I get more of a bittersweet chocolate note as the liqueur builds, but the pure, quite-sweet caramel endures for the long haul. The sugar is, thankfully and surprisingly, kept in check, and while the finish is a touch rough — lingering on the roof of the mouth for quite a while — it’s surprisingly drinkable and a fun change of pace in this category.

30 proof.
