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.

2011 Bottle. Pours a dark brown color with reddish notes and a beige head. Aroma is of bourbon and cherries, I get vanilla, oak, leather, dark fruits of raisins and dates, tobacco, sugary notes, almost toasty notes and molasses. The flavor follows the nose, of cherry and bourbon, wood and vanilla, along with the molasses, dark fruits, leather funk, tobacco, toasty notes, darker sugar and tobacco. Body is lighter side of medium and almost dead flat with an oily mouth feel. Overall a really nice version of Adam, but not as good as the Bourbon version, and I would have liked more carbonation.

Bottle pour at Pine box Seattle, haven’t seen this, so I had to get it, black pour redish hint, Bourbon aroma hint of cherry, you can taste a lot of they black cherry, slight wood, a little over powering, would love to try a 2012-2011 after a lot of mellowing out. Really enjoyed this one.

12 oz bottle shared at the pine box anniversary party. This is great. Thanks T! Pours a red tinted black with a big cocoa black cherry aroma. Flavor is a little syrupy, and a tad sweet with cherry. Smooth cherry and bourbon flavor. Wonderful stuff. Loved it.

Via trade with Douglas88. The pour is deep black, no head. The aroma is bourbon, wood, vanilla, molasses, cherry, which is subtle, leather. Lots going on. The flavor is chocolate, bourbon, wood, vanilla, leather, tobacco, very subtle cherry. Gorgeous. The finish is light bourbon, pine, leather. Just excellent. Medium, slightly thick in body.

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.
