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.

Bottle purchased at Chucks in Chagrin Falls last year (I don’t know who traded with them to get this, but I scored 3 other HotD’s and an Abyss that day). 2009 vintage. Thick black yeast deposit left in the bottle, no head at all, deep brown-red hue making it seem black. All great signs. Aroma is almost perfect. Deep roasted malt, honey, chocolate, toasted oat, vanilla and notes of heaven all in the nose. I cannot imagine the flavor getting better with age, since it has the perfect complexity and flavor after a year and a half... but I do doubt it could get worse. Flavor is like a rich deep cherry and molasses flavor. Strong notes of vanilla and wood come through with a honey-like smoothness as well as the subdued malty sweetness. God this one is amazing.

Aromat mniej intensywny niż w Adamie z Drewna, na pierwszym planie suszone owoce, mniej beczki. Smak jeszcze słodszy, wiśniowo suszowy, karmelowy, głęboki i pyszny. Ahh.

Smells great and tastes even better.

Dark brown and flat. Aroma is exceptionally boozy, dry and woody. The cherry element adds sweetness and dryness.
