I am the Walnut
CELLAR MASTER NOTES:
If you search carefully you may find traces of beer in this liquid walnut syrup.
We experimented a lot with spice additions while working on this release to find the perfect combination. Finally, the interplay of walnut, tonka and mahlep came out as the winner combo.
Yes, I know your question and the answer is: mahlep is an aromatic spice made from the seeds of a species of cherry providing the characteristics of bitter almond, cherry and marzipan. These notes perfectly match with the deep-woody walnut savors and the vibrating spiciness of tonka that strengthens up the presence of barrel-inflicted flavors. So much to explain, such a short label… Just try it.
