The barrels that went into this small batch combined to make an amazing drinker.
Nose - Beautiful layering of brandied cherry over a mildly tart cherry. It opens up with time and is reminiscent of cutting into your dessert with your fork which releases cinnamon and baking spices with just a hint of oak to remind you that this is high proof youthful.
Palette- A robust rye with dark cherry, burnt vanilla, and spices for days. It's delicious rye with a weighty mouthfeel.
Finish- the finish is long and the spices dominate this batch, while the cherry does punch its way through to the surface.
