This unique incarnation of The Statement is made with Lutowka Morello-type cherries from Poland. The taste is definitely cherry, but more focused, brighter and with a touch more acidity than our standard Balaton version. It is delicious in its own singular way, and is demonstrative of the subtle but notable differences in flavors that can be achieved by using different fruit variations.

24/12/21: Side by side with regular. Looks darker, slightly more purple, thicker. Smell is similar to base, just a tad more chocolaty sweet. Tons of cherry. Body feels a bit thinner, but also less boozy. Flavour is more sweet, some light acidity, less pits. While both are delicious, I think I prefer the base, it has a slight bitterness that counters the chocolaty Kirsch sweetness more.

15/1/22: Dark purplish red. Great smell of sweet cherries, almost candied, some alcohol. Soft body, with a slight warming down the throat. Taste is sweet, with buckets of cherries. Fairly on the sweet side, but in a fruity way. Some pits. Delicious, as usual.

Bottle. Pours deep purple red. Cherry, tart cherry, funky sour cherry, blackberry, blackcurrant, sweet sour cherry juice, intense floral honey, rich port like red fruit grape notes, tobacco, slight earthiness, sweet syrupy finish. Oily body. Outstanding.

Yesterday! Delicious cherry character. Cleaner with less almond and cinnamon character than the statement but I didn’t do them side-by-side so I'm probably off. Lovely honey presence despite the tons of fruit. Also made for a wicked cherry Old Fashioned.
