Recommended by William, Spirits Lead @Habersham St.; 94 Points, Wine Enthusiast: ....it's really all about the influence of the ex-Sherry cask. Aromas suggest golden raisins and dried apricots. The silky palate starts out moderately smoky, but glides into a richer, honeyed, nutty profile that finishes with cocoa and clove accents.

Recommended by James, Product Research; 95 Points, Wine Enthusiast: A decade in Bourbon casks, plus an extra two years in Sauternes barriques yields a fresh honeysuckle and vanilla perfume and a super-smooth spirit with creamy honey and nut flavors, with hints of dark chocolate and cinnamon. Very few spirits have such elegance and silky finesse. Good value, too.
Gold Medal, San Francisco World Spirits Competition; 9/10, The Booze Blog: Pros: excellent value. Cons: none. Emmet's is an excellent Irish cream that is just as good straight as mixed, with a nice balance of spirits and cream with vanilla overtones and just the right amount of sweetness. And it goes on sale fairly often. Around here anyway.

Best Blended, World Whiskey Awards 2016:Deep honey-amber hue with warm, pronounced aromas of under-ripe banana and brown sugar, with spicy notes of white pepper and toasted sesame. Light body with warm texture and long sweet oak, vanilla finish with a touch of bitterness to balance. Reminiscent of a slice of toasted rye bread with honey drizzled on it.
92 Points, Wine Enthusiast:Sweet, mild, clean fragrance of lemon, juniper and licorice. This is a complex gin; cinnamon spice, astringent pine needles, a touch of lime zest and, finally, a big licorice finish comes singing through. Slightly oily feel. Great for a gimlet or martini with a lemon twist.
