If it's sitting in brandy, wouldn't the cherries last longer than a few weeks? Do they fall apart at some point?

But do the brandy cherries have that distinctive almond flavor that comes from the crushed cherry pits?

I haven't made any myself yet, when cherries come back in season here I am going to try

However if you are talking about the way Luxardo Marachino liquor tastes - i hope nothing tastes like that, i got a bottle and i believe i will have it forever, do not like the stuff

I want the cherries to taste like cherries

No, they taste like cherries, natural and earthy. And, they do not taste like the syrupy, artificial cherry flavored supermarket type. They work neutrally in a cocktail without dramatically swinging the sugar level up.
