Review: Five Farms Irish Cream

“Single batch” Irish cream from County Cork, Ireland, packaged in a swingtop bottle that looks a bit like a milk container. There’s even a picture of a cow on the label. What could be more authentic, or loveable? Five Farms makes only this single product, so you know you’re getting something truly unique before you even pop the top.

Which we did. Let’s see what’s inside this precious package.

There’s a distinct and somewhat heavy whiskey note on the nose here — not a bad thing, but a bit unexpected in a world of peppermint-cinnamon-flan-flavored liqueurs where the spirit is an afterthought. A bit sharp with alcohol (again a surprise, given the proof), the nose hints at vanilla and chocolate and a bit of cinnamon, while letting dairy cream notes percolate through the mix.

The palate is quite nicely rounded, melding the whiskey and the creamery notes well, taking the mix into a realm of butterscotch, salted caramel, and some spice, the lattermost of which lingers on the back end, where honey-scented whiskey and cocoa powder form a delightfully fresh union. Hard to put down, it’s lovely, very solid stuff.

34 proof.

    Thanks to DH I gave this a go. I love it. The bottle is cool, too. Maybe I’ll reuse it over and over. I’m only halfway through. Skip Baileys. No offense.

    We served two bottles of 5 Farms at our annual Supper Club St. Pats day dinner. It was demolished in no time.leaves Baileys in the dust. I have never been a big fan of creamy drinks but 5 Farms has changed my palate!

    Outstanding! The sample I was given at the 2019 Pittsburgh Irish Festival had me wanting more. In Western Pa. 5 Farms is limited at the State Stores…when it’s gone it’s gone.
