    Re: Black Maple Hill

    I had a bottle a little over a year ago - took some time to empty and won't be repeating the purchase. The strangest bourbon I've had - oddly corny and oily, and it was that way first drop to last. Not my cup of tea.

    Thank you for that description! That's how I would have described it if I knew how to put how i felt in words.

    I may be one of the few who actually likes it. I agree with the corn forward description and also think it has some complexity. My only issue with it is price. At $50 a bottle it seems to compare best with pours about $15 a bottle cheaper.

    It compares best with bottles $40.00 cheaper. The oily, corn, notes are characteristic of some young HH whiskys.

    Re: Black Maple Hill

    I'm having a glass now and so far I'm really not a fan. Corny and Oily is dead on. Its actually so corn forward that I'm having a hard time picking up much else. I don't hate it by any means, its drinkable. Maybe it needs some more time.

    Better have one more glass to make sure.....

    In such matters I find a second opinion is always advisable.

    Re: Black Maple Hill

    Did finish off my first and last bottle this weekend. I was just so dissapointed that something that cost 41.99 did not have the flavor of a bottom shelf 9.99. In fact it was more a water downed Southern Comfort.

    Black Maple Hill

    It is amazing that BMH has caught the buzz it has as if it were a "premium" bourbon. It is now upwards of $50-$60 by me because of this. I wouldn't buy it at $30 or $40, but the price jump is just silly.

    I have a bottle of Noah's Mill at $43, which may not be quite worth the price, but at least has some flavor and proof to back that price up.

    Re: Black Maple Hill

    I had one bottle I really liked, and the second no so much. I bought bottles at different times and places and still have a couple. I'll have to revisit them maybe their a different batch?
