    Black Maple Hill Red Label - Good? Overpriced? Great? Bad? Discuss!

    I, for one, find it very up front and spicy, with some oak and a bit of corn....I don't know if I can place what it is I like about it, but it's one of my faves to keep open in the bar.

    Your turn. Go.

    I enjoy it but wish it came from a real distillery.

    Not a fan

    Bought a bottle years ago, drank maybe a glass and it stayed buried in the back of liquor cabinet. Brought it out a month ago to give to my brother in law along with a few other unwanted bottles. As a Chico state junior I'm sure him and his buds put it to good use!

    I don't think the juice deserves the hype. It's not terrible, but not worth searching out, IMO. The somewhat limited availability and the bottle/name contribute to the hype, for sure. K&L had a good blog post about it a while back.

    Heaven Hill, Barton (it's a short list if they're shopping locally) either is fine with me, I just see no reason to pay a markup to get their whisky from someone else.

    Brown-Forman is a possiblity too.

    Put me in the "good but overpriced" camp.

    Well of course Josh, BT as well, but I did say if they were shopping locally. My point remains though, I'm not paying extra for someone to add their label.
