Hard Cuts is a blend of two different collaborative projects with our dear friend Brad Clark of Private Press. 2 oak aged Munichwines and a Double Oak aged Munichwine were blended with three barrels of a Barleywine brewed with a high percentage of rye and also aged in various rye whiskey barrels. Deep and sexy aromas of molasses and Jamaican dark rum, 10 year tawny port, sticky apricot and brûléed meringue with a dusting of clove are followed by flavors of honey processed coffee, dried cherry, rye loaf crust, date and fig as well as a long lasting barrel char and tobacco finish.
