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.

Sarlacc83 (2159) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 11, 2012
12oz bottle. 2012 vintage. A: Creamy cherry tinted head that eventually recedes. Blackened body. Great legs. N: Cherry, vanilla, honey, bourbon, oak, coconut, leather and smoke. Good grief. Smells like adam from the wood. T: Deep, rich and full. Cherry, oak, alcohol, smoke, bakers chocolate. Honey and vanilla. Lots of bourbon tones. Leather and earth. Rich and complex. The cherry is an overtone here rather than the star and it works. M: Heavy with pronounced alcohol. Normal for Adam. O: Well this is a pleasant surprise. More like Adam from the Wood with cherry than Cherry Adam, and as such, the best of the 4 vintages.

Nische (2077) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 24, 2017
Bottle kindly shared by pilsnertest. Pours dark reddish brown. Completely still. Big aroma and taste with sugar syrup, dark fruit, prunes, toasted oak, cherry. Oily texture with a slight hit of booze. Magnificent.

bulldogops (2490) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 19, 2017
Rating #2330 - 2016.02.11- Enjoyed on @drinkthispod #yeg. Bottle obtained at brewery. Pours an opaque dark reddish brown color, almost black. Very little white head that bubbles away quickly. Nice aroma of cherry, bourbon, alcohol, roasted earthy malt. Smooth mouthfeel, taste of oaky cherry chocolate, medium alcohol warmth on the palate, full bodied, lingering sweetness. Love the colour and depth that these Bourbon barrels and cherries have brought to this brew. Exquisite.

stevoj (4464) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 7, 2017
Bottle share. Dark, flat pour. Big boozy aroma. Taste comes in big, cherries, malty, sweet. Doesnt taste boozy, but sneaks up on you. Near perfect.

FatPhil (15154) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 4, 2016
355ml bottle - Overpriced Beer Tasting 2016 - thanks rask0lnikov!
Smells of whatever spirit was in the barrel, some barrel. Nice raisiny taste, but outragiously sweet. Woody, but so damn sweet. Doesnt hide the alcohol, it smothers the alcohol. Sweet boozy mess.

14 Oct 2016, bottle. black. nose is boozy, woody, nutty, some cherry. med body and mildly fizzy. cherry is nice and not too sweet or bold. the sweetness is from the malt and booze. it is slightly acidic and rather woody. cherry lifesaver comes out a bit more as it warms up. very nice.
