Fiery bourbon combined with the cool, silky smoothness of fresh dairy cream, available sweetened with real honey or real maple syrup. Woodys Northwoods Original Bourbon Cream is one of three bourbon creams recently released by Apollo Beverages. Each is made and bottled at the St Petersburg Distillery. Woodys Original is described as a fiery bourbon, combined with the cool silky smoothness of real American cream. The others Woodys varieties include a Honey Bourbon Cream, and a Maple Bourbon Cream. They will soon be releasing Woodys Apple Pie A La Mode.It pours to a milky caramel color. The aroma is bourbon, cream and nutmeg.
The sweet creamy bourbon entry builds to a bourbon vanilla milkshake peak. It fades with nutmeg and eggnog flavor. The finish is smooth with only gentle warmth and cream softened bourbon taste. Woodys Original may not be as thick and creamy as an Irish Cream Liqueur, or feature as much bourbon taste as some bourbon cream liqueurs, but Woodys is very tasty, and it only makes me more anxious to try their other bourbon cream varieties.
