    Was at a liquior tasting event tonight and was talking with one of the patron's who attended a Super Bowl party where they were doing shots of a maple flavored whiskey (presumably Crown Royal) and chasing it with a strip of bacon. Could be a new marketing angle?

    Re: Knob Creek Smoked Maple Bourbon

    A few years ago, when Twisted Spoke still had a Wrigleyville outpost, a bunch of us were there after WhiskeyFest. At one point, Mitch (one of the owners) reached over the bar and handed me a plate. "What is it?" I asked. "Just eat it," he replied. I presented it to the rest of the group. It was little nuggets of breaded and deep-fried something. It was delicious but it still wasn't obvious what it was so I asked Mitch again. "Deep fried bacon" was the reply. Several people gasped. It was as if he had said, "deep fried baby." So good, but so wrong.

    And now perfect with maple-flavored bourbon.

    Actually, they debuted KCSM with a pig roast in NYC.

    Easy enough to make your own. Just mix bourbon and real maple syrup to taste (i'd say about 1/4 bourbon to 3/4 syrup for pancakes and waffles, and I mix it half-and-half for a cocktail additive). Let it sit in the fridge for about four weeks, shaking occasionally.

    Use a favorite inexpensive 100+ proofer, like OGD BiB or WT101 (nothing too fancy), or even a nice high-proof rye like Ritt or the fast-disappearing Wild Turkey Rye 101.

    It's madness, I tell ya....MADNESS!!!!
