Great stuff. Dublin is a little vague about this flavor, describing it as “a true proprietary blend of cola and stone fruit flavors”. You can definitely taste cherry, but it’s a mystery what else they’re mixing in. Whatever it is, it works.

Some reviews liken it to Dr. Pepper, with a mix of botanicals, spices and fruit juices, and I wouldn’t be surprised if this is the case. Dublin was at one time a licensed Dr Pepper bottler. The cherry flavor is subdued which lets the real kola nut and other flavors shine. If you like the complex taste of Sprecher’s sodas, this one will be right up your alley. Definite recommend.
