Just finished primary fermentation... we'll see

First off, I agree with most here, why not include the fricken directions? Geez that must cost them all of about 6 cents to include that. Now unto the maple additive... which to my nose is strong but it also smells like bourbon or whiskey so yeah its supposed to be in there. After reading reviews I added about a half of one packet... I would rather be a bit underwhelmed on this than overwhelmed - esp since I like dry - not sweet. I'll update in about 6 months or so since I bulk age my wines for at least 6 months, then I try a sample if happy I bottle.

Too early to tell, but I will say the finishing packets smell incredible and they are not even opened yet! Its potent! I may only use one at first.

WOW, the first taste was amazing. A little bite of whiskey flavor followed by a hint of cherry and a mellow finish. A big hit on Mother's day.
