Black Maple Hill 18 Year Old Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey Cask #R66

Complex opening bouquet ranges from scents of burnt marshmallow to cigar box to whipping cream; air contact releases additional scents of cotton candy, candied almond, spicy grain, confectioner's sugar and maple. Palate entry is long, prickly, fruity and semisweet; at midpalate the oily, viscous taste profile surges forward, highlighting flavors of baked pear, apple crumble, toffee and butter cream. Finishes as stately as it began. A true superstar American whiskey. P.P.
