What the brewers say

“Aged in bourbon barrels, then conditioned on brewed sweet cherry puree and liquid cocoa nibs.”

What our panel thought

“Bourbon character dominates the aroma with a touch of vanilla and dark cherry beneath. Flavor is rich with bourbon playing off chocolate and sweet-and-sour cherry notes. The balanced nuance of a fine chocolatier’s cherry cordial.”

What our editors thought

“Chocolate and cherry notes in the nose with a slightly vegetal woody barrel note. Honey-sweet cherry truffle with a vaguely boozy edge, but it feels a bit restrained in its indulgence.”
