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.

Bottle from Rayl101! Pours near black with an espresso head. Aroma is alcohol, cocoa, wood, dark fruit. Taste is sweet with some bourbon notes, vanilla, cherry. Sticky and a bit hot. Good, but the flavors seem muddled to me.

Still deep brown with a red hue. Big fruity aroma, not cherry but dark malt fruit, oak and booze. Sweet cherries, booze, sherry, soy. Very nice and lacking carb doesn’t hurt this at all

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.
