From now on, I am always having a bottle of Coole Swan Irish Cream Liqueur in my fridge. As far as I’m concerned, it’s one of the greatest luxuries in the spirit world, and in only one sip, you will know what I mean.
I had been meaning to try Coole Swan when I saw it was named the Number 1 cream liqueur in the world by Wine Enthusiast Magazine 2020. It was sitting in my fridge waiting for me to find the perfect moment. What was I waiting for?
What is Coole Swan
I have looked upon those brilliant creatures,The Wild Swans of Coole, William Butler Yeats
And now my heart is sore.
All’s changed since I, hearing at twilight,
The first time on this shore,
The bell-beat of their wings above my head,
Trod with a lighter tread.
What are the words of Yeats doing in my spirit review? As you may have guessed by the poem’s title, Coole Swan Irish Whiskey liqueur was named for this work by one of Ireland’s most famous poets. True to Yeats’s desire to find “everlasting beauty in an ever changing world,” the creators of Coole Swan hope every sip will inspire you.
How is Coole Swan made
A decedent combination of Irish Whiskey, white chocolate and cream, Coole Swan is as luxurious as it sounds. It took 230 permutations and combinations until they struck liquid white gold. More precisely, they blend a single malt Irish whiskey with Belgian white chocolate and then add fresh cream – a heady, but surprisingly, sippable Irish Cream liqueur that is not overly sweet.
