    Black Maple Hill 23yo vs. Vintage Rye 23yo?

    I realize this is sort of a follow-up to this thread, but I wanted to see if anyone had done any comparisons between these two ryes? Are these from the same source/barrels? Thanks very much.

    Send me a bottle of each, and I'll be more than happy to report back my findings. TPS report and all.

    Re: Black Maple Hill 23yo vs. Vintage Rye 23yo?

    I can't imagine either of them being any better than the Vintage 21 year Rye, but I haven't tasted either to give better truth to my claim. I just haven't seen justification to pay the large difference in price for the 23, especially the BMH23 which from what I recall was pretty easily over the $100 mark.

    After checking it appears Binnys has dropped the price on some of these. The BMH 23 is now showing $99.99, the Vintage 23 $74.99 and the Vintage 21 $59.99. Considering Bevmo was selling the Vintage 21 bourbon for $49.99 which I didn't think was worth 20bucks, that is a very good price on the 21 Rye.

    Is it true that the Black Maple Hill bourbons were made/bottled by Julian?

    It is no secret that I love that elixir of the gods, bourbon.

    Hey Stones, during the time Julian ran his own business he did not actually make any whiskey, rather he sourced his supply by hand selecting barrels from other distilleries. He also did some custom bottling.

    Just wanted to fix my own mistake:
    ...Bevmo was selling the Vintage 17 bourbon for $49.99...
