Vana Tallinn Original Cream Liqueur was invented in 2001 to celebrate Women’s Day. There are combined traditionally Vana Tallinn characteristic rum flavour, herbs and lemon aromas to fresh cream. Bottled at 50cl with 16% volume, price is around 7€.
Vana Tallinn herbal aromas are well featured, rum or other spirit gives the body and cream brings softness. Even there is only 16% alcohol I can feel a certain bite, which makes me think there might also be a rectified spirit as base alcohol. Mouthfeel is thick, much thicker than on Baileys or Dooley’s. Anyway it’s not too sweet, sugar and herbs are well balanced. Overall it feels more stronger than Irish cream liqueurs, which can be a surprise for many on the beginning.
