It is a nice dram for sure. Has some rye spiciness to it and that gives it also some complexity and the longer I sit with it the more complex it seems to become.
Black Maple Hill is a Non-Distiller Producer, and all lead back to the Kentucky Bourbon Distillers (Willett Distillery).
Looking around on the internet searching for information on this one they say that this one should have a very ‘traditional’ mash bill with a relatively high corn content in it combined with the flavoring of rye. And this one should be around 14 years old. It is a bit unclear where the Black Maple Hill exactly is produced, and what the story is about it.
If someone can tell me more about this bottling I would love to hear from you. Curious to hear about this story…. Thanks Shai for this lovely sample!
