Montmorency tart cherry juice sourced from the Leelenau Fruit Company lends a mellow cherry finish to this whiskey. The whiskey starts off as a Michigan Bourbon and then the local cherry juice is added for the last month of aging. You pick up the subtle cherry notes on the front of your palate along with brown sugar and vanilla followed by a warm finish from the bourbon. This whiskey is great for Manhattans or Whiskey Sours.
