WHAT IS IT?
A bottle of liqueur that is separated into two, one is a creamy vanilla liqueur and the other is a coffee liqueur. You need to pour it at an angle so that the vanilla liqueur layers on top of the coffee, this is easy to do but if you pour it into your glass too quick it will mix slightly where the two drinks touch.
Sheridans has got quite a strong flavour but it is very smooth. The vanilla liqueur is creamy but I can never taste very much vanilla, I like the rich flavour of the coffee liqueur and how it warms my tummy as I swallow it like a glass of whisky. The two flavours go nice together but while you're drinking you'll find you drink the white layer and then end up with just the dark coffee flavoured liqueur.
WHAT I THINK
I have always got a bottle of Sheridans in because my husband and I often have a glass of it after our supper. It is not my favourite liqueur but I very much like the appearance in a small glass. Sheridans is an unusual drink and even though it has been available for twenty years not many people drink it, I like to offer it to guests as something different and a lot of people buy it after drinking it in my home.
Once you have evolved the knack you will be able to pour it smoothly and easily to separate the layers properly but they often mix slightly as you drink anyway so it is not a problem if you are a bit too heavy handed. The bottle has a pouring cap and this works very well so that you are not left with a lot of the coffee liqueur and none of the vanilla even though there is only about half the amount of white liqueur than the black. I think the vanilla part has got a bit of a greasy feeling in my mouth and prefer the clear coffee part.
Sheridans contains 15.5% alcohol but does not taste that strong because it is very easy to drink. It costs about £15 for a 50cl bottle so that's quite expensive but I think it's worth the money because it's such a nice and unusual drink.
