AdamJackson (3077) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 2, 2015
This is a darker reddish watered down blood appearance. A lot of legs on this one. Nose is intense bourbon, rye with a lot of vanilla, some smoke and maple syrup. Nose alone makes you realize it’s going to be a huge flavor. I get very faint cherry. Well, this tastes straight up like a Manhattan cocktail. Cherry, bourbon, table sugar, lots of sweet orange peel some tangy notes and the cherry lingers for a while. Obviously not quite as boozy as a Manhattan. the cherry just really tastes amazing. Quite incredible.

radarsock (1055) - Vermont, USA - JAN 2, 2015
14% on label. 500 mL bottle supplied by WillRunForBeer - many thanks! To tumbler, it pours a murky light crimson pink. Aromas of melon rind, vanillin, maraschino cherries, DME, pumpernickel, bourbon oak, straw, honey, and rhubarb. Tastes the same with the addition of cinnamon/cooking spices, melted wax, earthiness/juniper berries, and unripe strawberries. Strangely fruity. Burned but only for a bit. Smooth as hell. After the seventh sip, the alcohol becomes more fluid; its content creeped like a champ. Swishable and lively.

Sampled at Willrunforbeer grand mead tasting. Hazy red / pink color. Aroma a great willow bourbon encasing a cherry, honey and mild flowers.

Flavor is just great. Tart cherries blended in honey with a subtle bourbon oak notes throughout the sip. Body is medium with a great lightly lingering bourbon.

Hazy copper color, no head. Alcohol, berry scent. Sweet, tart, wood taste. Vinous, alcohol aftertaste. Smoth mouthfeel, peppry alcohol bitterness. Rather boozy, might improve for my taste with some age to it?
