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.

wickedpete (634) - Lexington Park, Maryland, USA - MAY 9, 2010
2009 bottling. Pours dark brown with no head formation, even form a vigorous pour. No carbonation is visible. The aroma has lots going on: bourbon, brown sugar, raisins, red licorice, and alcohol. A creaminess also comes through. Sweet, creamy red fruit flavor up front, mixing with just a hint of bourbon. Layers of tobacco and leather subtly come through afterward. The finish has some bourbon, brown sugar, and sweet fruit. This bottle is nearly still, which makes for a less than impressive mouthfeel to mingle with all of these wonderful flavors. I think that holds this back unfortunately, because I know some carbonation would make this absolutely a stand out.

fkoolen (999) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 5, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2016 Bottle at home, 2015 ed. Very dark red wine colour, no head. Amazingly complex cherry, red vinous, oaky vanilla, bourbon-y, lightly acidic nose. Taste has some additional roasted malty chocolate, coffee, butterscotch, nuts and dried fruits, warmingly boozy but high abv is well hidden. Brilliantly balanced. Red fruity, body lingering finish. Absent carbonation, big body, velvety (!) soft mouthfeel, oily texture.

Chudwick (2852) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - JUL 22, 2016
12oz bottle 2014 release thanks to Prufrockstar- nose is like regular version but a little cough syrup or brandy. Flat. A little nutty probably from the ageing. Earthy.

Christian (12953) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2016
Bottle at home. Near black with a tiny off-white head. Strong, complex aroma, with cherries, roasted notes of chocolate and licorice, vanilla and caramel, and all held together by vineous alcohol character of bourbon and dessert wine. Sweet and complex flavour of dessert wine, cherry and aged barleyw wine. As good as any Adam from the wood. World class.

ciocanelu (1430) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - MAR 18, 2016
Murky brown color with a reddish hue, no head. Aroma is really intense with dark fruits, caramel, brandy, toffee and fudge. Taste follows with cherries, plums, figs, toffee and oak. Heavy, flat body. Really complex overall, lots of dark fruits and toffee. A bit of carbonation would do wonders though.
