UPDATED: FEB 27, 2017 Bottled at Clubhouse BFD event Pours Rose color. Aroma is lots of sweet sticky cherry. Flavor is sweet sprite, cough syrup, cherry. It?s fine if you dig sweet drinks. Not for me.

Bottle thanks to Chad. Pours orangish pink color. Larger whiskey character from the nose than barrel character. Much hotter compared to its WBA variant. The rye barrel hides more of the cherry than whiskey did.

Pours clear reddish gold. The aroma has richness, mild cherry and some of the whiskey comes through. It has a full slick Rick boy with a hint of prickly carbonation. The taste has a lot of whiskey, but that is offset by sweetness and spice and there is a hint of cherry. It has a pleasant warming effect. Really good.

Rudzud (44) - Cherry Valley, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 26, 2016
Received in a trade. Shared with JLindros. Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice clear light ruby hue. Aromas of a fair amount of rather mediocre rye whiskey, the cherries taste cloy. Taste is similar to the nose, the rye is rather mediocre, the cherry is really cough syrup forward. Mouthfeel is a bit thin and sticky

ilovedarkbeer (2741) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUN 7, 2016
Pours a reddish pink color with a small foamy head that dissipates. Notes of vanilla, faint whiskey, dried cherries, and white wine. Slightly tannic. Subtle but good and not overly sweet.

biggsbowler (625) - Port St. Lucie, Florida, USA - AUG 6, 2015
Bottle - This is boozy one. Pours opaque pinkish/yellow. Nose is sweet, honey, slight cherry, oaky, rye, apples. Taste is sweet honey, apples, and light cherry finish. A good amount of alcohol here. It would be hard to drink a lot of this one at 12% abv, because it tastes like a 20%.

phaleslu (10271) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 13, 2015
500 ml bottle. Can’t remember where I bought it. Been meaning to open this one for a while. Pours a clear golden rose color with some legs on the sides and a tiny off-white ring around the edge. The aroma has a nice cherry wine thing going on, with lighter honey, plenty of florals, and some whiskey heat that adds warmth to the nostrils late. Flavor of cherries, honey, sweet white wine, vanilla, oak, and tannins. Medium-bodied, with a sweet, vinous mouthfeel. Man, this one grew on me. I kept bumping up my score.

10oz draft @ The Stein & Vine, Brandon. At 20$ a glass I had high hopes for this one, well, the zombies kidna took me by surprise. Couleur orangée, léger huileux au verre. Arôme offre une version plus fruitée que la Zombie Killer. La cerise y est bien dominante avec un effet whisky restant assez en retrait. Palais est doux, mielleux, douceur de cerise accompagne le tout. Le palais reste cependant légèrement actif au niveau effervescence. On retrouve également un profil modérément âcre de la cerise et cette impression de jus de de cerise qui s’accentue en fin de bouche. On retrouve, grâce aux 12%, un palais plus épais et profitant plus du miel. Reste correcte, mais j’attendais nettement mieux de ce traitement en barrique surtout par rapport au prix demandé.

djd07 (14521) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 13, 2015
Bottle thanks to Brian. Pours a clear orange with small white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong apple juice, wine, honey. Thin mouth, jammy apple, honey, light booze, very good.
