Black Maple Hill 11 Year Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Cask #300

Best Buy

Initial sniffings don't discover much; aeration and swirling rouse subtle aromas of nougat, flax, crushed almond and linseed oil. Palate entry is astonishingly delicate and sweet; at midpalate the flavor does a slow burn on the tongue as ripe, fruity tastes of baked apple, road tar, grapefruit and buttered popcorn make it all worth it. Ends banana-like and prickly on the back of the tongue. P.P.
