Default Tasting terminology question in Weller bourbons

I have a question about one of the flavors I am tasting. The whiskeys in question are W.L. Weller Special Reserve and Old Weller Antique. Both have a flavor in them that I find to be vaguely reminiscent of cherry Dimetapp to me; this is probably not quite right, but I lack the terminology to describe it better. I had assumed that this came from the wheat in the mash bill, but I recently tried Woodford Reserve for the first time and faintly tasted a similar flavor.

Does anyone understand what I'm talking about from my (terrible) description, and can you offer a better term or information on what that taste comes from?
