The funk and booze really meld well together here. I would say the wine barrel is more prevalent than the whiskey barrel because of the funkiness and tartness both both are perceptible. Not mouth puckering but sour.

Very dark mahogany color. Pretty much a perfect balance of wine and bourbon barrels, with a natural-tasting cherry flavor being led by above-moderate tartness and gentle carbonation, at a perfect level to allow for the enjoyment of juicy cherry, bourbon-y malt, and generally all-around pleasant flavors.
