COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cherry Adam from the Wood is aged with locally grown black cherries in oak casks for 15 months. The fruit lends a sweet tartness to the finish, melding with the wood and adding a new dimension of complexity. The 2008 bottling celebrates 15 years of business for me and was aged in Bourbon and Sherry barrels. The 2009 bottling was aged exclusively in Elijah Craig Bourbon barrels.

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2015 2012 Vintage. Bottle. Pours dark brown with a small fading white head. Complex and vinous nose and flavor. Bourbon, thick caramel, licorice and cherries. Nose is good but flavor is just overwhelming. Well integrated cherries and superb barrel ageing. Boom!

2012 Bottle, huge thanks to 5000. First rate in almost a year, popped open to ’celebrate’ a 4.0 semester. Pours a dark opaque brown with a light brown, very slightly reddish head. Aroma is bourbon, raisins, cherries, a little oxidation. Taste is sweet, more cherries and bourbon, with some nice tart cherry on the finish. Quite good, I imagine it would have been better a year ago though.

gramity (1530) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 7, 2014
Opens with just a slight hiss and pours flat. Cherries add A slight berry note and complements the sweet vanilla bourbon notes but they are barely there, covered by malts and warming bourbon. Bit of a letdown, maybe some bubbles would have improved my experience. Viscous sipper.

kbudd19 (849) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle vintage 2009. Oily Black pour with no head to speak of. Aroma is vanilla, light smoke, ash, brown sugar, and tart fruit, crazy good aroma. Taste is light tartness, vanilla, ash, butterscotch, light tartness on the aftertaste, oily mouthfeel no carbonation. Pretty darn tasty not much cherry flavour left but this is a pretty old bottle, not really any carbonation but still delicious.
