Your Favorite Liqueur?

Sat Oct 06, 2007 2:46 pm

I'm normally much of a liqueur fan, there are however two exceptions:

Goldwasser:



This is an extraordinary herbal liqueur made in Poland (Gdansk) since the 16th century. I can't describe its taste, it's incredibly complex (it's a secret combination of several dozen herbs and spices), but it leaves a long-lingering aftertaste of fresh lemon. Absolutely sublime.  cloudnine  It also contains real gold flakes - they don't have any particular taste per se, but it's great to shake the bottle and impress your guests.  Smile

Irish Cream:



This one needs no introduction, I suppose.  Smile

I've sampled a lot of liqueurs, and although I liked many, they always tend to be nauseating after a few sips (too sweet/intense). The two above I can never get enough of, however.

What are your favorite liqueurs?

Mine are Sambuca and Frangelico. Very good.
Obsessed is just a word the lazy use to describe the dedicated.

I want to get rid of this nasty German naming of this liquor. It is Zlotnik Gdanski not Goldwasser.

"Nasty German naming"? Apparently, the Poles don't think so, because it says Goldwasser/Zlota Woda on my (last  Sad ) bottle (the one in the pic.) Gdansk (or Danzig  stirthepot  ) was a cosmopolitan German-speaking city when Golwasser was invented - the name is very old and IMO it's a good marketing decision to keep it.  Smile

I like Galliano. Not alone, but mixed with Vodka and Orange Juice to make Harvey Wallbangers, the greatest Mixed Drink ever.

Of Course...my favorite Liqueur probably has to be Jagermeister. I love drinking that stuff. Sometimes, most of the times, i drink too much.



Also, I like Rumple Minze and Goldschlager.

I'm a big Glenlivet fan myself...that was always my dads drink when I was growing up - he'd come home from work each night and have a class on the rocks...now I do the same. Like father, like son I guess.

I know whats written on the bottle. And that depends on where the bottle is exported to or for domestic market.

You mean it was a city under German occupation for a good while. And the drink was invented by a dutchman, for the record.

There should be an age limit to post here. And some sort of an intelligence test, though I figure the numbers on this site would be drastically lower if that were the case.

LIQUEUR:

Whisky = a LIQUOR (EL-EYE-CUE-YOU-OH-ARE).

Definitely Bailey's for me, preferrably caramel Bailey's. At the curling club I habitually have a hot chocolate with caramel Bailey's after every game. When the bartenders see me coming off the ice they turn on the kettle. Apparently this is now known as "April's drink" to some folks. "Can you make me April's drink?"  Smile

My friend from Finland brought me a bottle of cloudberry liqueur many years ago. It was really nice - very smooth! I've never looked for it in North America, although I suspect I could get it in Thunder Bay (home of the largest Finnish population outside of Finland).

listen im bored w this art history paper im finishing so heres some fun for you...im all in favor of some kind of intelligence test, sounds great. maybe everyone posting here should be a national merit scholar? gee. i suppose, just by the nature of the designation, chances are that doesn't include you  Sad mean, i know. age limit? why don't we make it 20 and up. or 21 and up. either way~ wow that really does narrow the field.

Yes, cloudberry liqueur is nice, smooth and strong, good for coctails, made of arctic cloudberries:



My favourites at the moment: Ballantine's Whisky and Finlandia Vodka Lime:



BTW, Thunder Bay area in Canada sure have lot of Finnish immigrants but it's far from having 'the largest Finnish population outside of Finland'. It's definately Sweden, the weather refugees spend their winters in Spain, Florida etc.

You shouldn't have tried to drink a whole glass of raw Finlandia, what ever your Finnish friends said...  Wink

Ice cold Jägermeister is great, rather popular in Finland too, has a nick name 'Jekku' here. Some even add Jekku to energy drink  boggled

There is some statistic about Thunder Bay and Finnish people...could be largest number of Finnish immigrants in one city...maybe largest percentage of population being Finns. I just know that I went to school with lots of Makis and Vikkeris and Ryynanens and Lehtos and Pintas and Kaukinens and Vaananens and Rintakangases...and a good portion of Thunder Bay houses have saunas!

There are couple of other cloudberry brands, like sweet cloudberry wine:


...Cloudberry Cream:


...And many other berry liqueurs. Yes they are good many ways, in coctails, in desserts, on ice cream.


The Finnish 2-Euro coin also has cloudberry on it:


Yes, relatively speaking, Thunder Bay must be one of the most Finnish places outside Finland. Is the Finnish culture still living there? There haven't been much immigration from Finland to Canada since 1960-70s.
I have some family living in Vancouver, moved there in 1970s. Personally I like Canada a lot, been there a couple of times. Many kids from our family have spent a summer or two in Canada, great time.

It was in Switzerland, I bought the bottle in Tallinn. And it was half a glass mixed with Orange juice, so really nothing hard. My body just somehow conflicted with it, that has never happened before with any vodka. I wasn't drunk at all either. Very weird.

Definitely there is still much Finnish culture in Thunder Bay. There is a whole Finnish section of town, centred around Bay Street, with Finnish shops, restaurants, newspapers, all kinds of stuff.
