    Cabin Fever 80 Proof Maple Spirit

    Has anyone else seen this stuff around in their neck of the woods? Anyone outside of New England? Has anyone tried it? It has showed up everywhere around lately -- I can't get away from it. 80 proof is pretty good proof for a liqueur and it says barrel-aged for three years, so it might not be too bad....catch is it's only available in 750s for $25 and I have been hesitant to take the plunge...that would cut into my bourbon budget!

    Here's their website:

    Anyway, if anyone has any personal experiences with this grog, I'd love to hear 'em.

    Hmm...good on pancakes?

    From the official website: http://www.cabinfeverspirits.com/

    "... Cabin Fever’s taste is a harmony of oak and maple at the forefront with hints of caramel and butterscotch...."

    Sounds good on vanilla ice cream...or make a float of it.

    Must be a real man's drink! These old-timers seem to enjoy it.

    I doubt that picture was taken here down South, but, drinking whiskey from a coffee mug, is something you'll see at times from the old timers down here. I have a couple of fellas in the neighborhood that always drink their bourbon that way. Don't know why, though.

    Re: Cabin Fever 80 Proof Maple Spirit

    Supposedly, there are or have been spirits that are made by fermenting and distilling a mixture of maple sap and water. The Thirsty Traveler featured one on a show set in Canada.

    Unfortunately, I don't think this is that. I think this is a GNS-based liqueur, perhaps sweetened with maple sugar, but just as likely sweetened with HFCS and flavored with maple extract.

    Sorry to poop on the party, but maybe I just saved you $25.

    I would be interested in trying it, but $25 is steep.
    Hope is subversive, for it limits the grandiose pretensions of the present by calling into existence the possibility of something better.
