Stirrings Liqueurs

So I was wondering if anyone has tried some of their stuff? I live in Portland, Or and we recently got their stuff at my favorite liquor store.
Out of their liqueurs I have tried the espresso, the ginger, and the triple sec.
They also carry pomegranate, apple, and peach.
The espresso is very intense. It reminds me of the pure flavor of espresso without being too cloyingly sweet. It can easily overpower a drink. This is very much different than Kahlua. Also, I bought some Galliano Ristretto yesterday because I was very curious. I prefer the Stirrings and it's about $10 cheaper. The Ristretto is more complex, but in a way that I feel takes away from the pure coffee flavor that I was hoping for.
The ginger liquer is also incredibly intense. It's just a really pure ginger flavor and it has a kick. Whereas Canton is more complex, this (stirrings) is just ginger. It's also not as sweet as Canton. I feel like Canton can get lost in a drink, but adds a nice dimension. The stirrings ginger can be a bully. So if you like ginger, this is for you.
The triple sec is fine, especially for the price. Once again nothing complex, but for $14 a nice mixer.
Has anyone else tried their other stuff and can you please comment. More curious than anything. Oh yeah and these liqueurs are all $14 here and about $10 online.
