I added a carrot before blended, but needs something...looking for suggestions to enhance, sweeten a bit, would a brandy do? or sherry, or another spice?

I would add Boiled Apple Cider Syrup or a bit of Maple Syrup along with a pinch of sea salt to bring that sweetness out. Good luck!
I usually find that winter squash soups lean to the side of sweetness, certainly pumpkin is sweeter than carrot so I see the carrot as adding flavor and depth but not sweetness here. I would not add the liquor for sweetness, you'd have to add so much it would be overwhelming. Same with nutmeg...it won't really make it s sweet, just give a hint but I don't think it would go with the smoked paprika. So my suggestions are to use apple cider as part of the cooking liquid, or adding a diced apple with the squash when you are cooking it.
Sunchowder's suggestions are excellent for adjusting the soup now that you've made it.
Happier iced coffee, cereal, and cookies, right this way.
