Golden amber color. Fruity aromas and flavors of spiced cherries in syrup, dried figs and dates,vanilla-caramel, root beer, gingersnaps, and rye toast with a velvety, vibrant, fruity light-to-medium body and a smooth, interesting, medium-long finish with accents of freshly expressed orange peel, cream of wheat, and clove. A tasty, cherry-laden Old Fashioned that hits the spot; this easy to serve cocktail will surely please.
