Benjamin Prichard's Sweet Lucy Bourbon Cream Liqueur, 17.5%

Price: $25 Issue: Winter 2014 Reviewer: Geoffrey Kleinman

More widely available than Buffalo Trace's adored Bourbon Cream, Prichard's takes premium cream from Wisconsin and adds it to their Sweet Lucy liqueur. The nose is sweet but not overly so, with orange creamsicle and just a hint of whiskey with oak spice. On the palate it's creamy confection bliss, with ladyfingers covered in heavy cream and candied orange topped with a drizzle of bourbon. Rich, creamy, but not too heavy; file this one as a dangerously delicious guilty pleasure.
