Tasting Notes

"The aroma on Clear Creek Kirschwasser is intense, with earthy, nutty notes and a strong whiff of alcohol. It's a bit more gentle on the palate, with more flavors of cherry and almond coming through. It's not the most approachable eau de vie, but its appeal increases with familiarity."
