    Knob Creek Smoked Maple....

    Ok, just purchased this and am having my first glass. All I can say is.....

    WOW !!!!

    I am really liking this stuff! Can't help it. I love bourbon. And maple syrup. And the smell of Fall, chimney smoke (even though I live in S Fl and this is non-existent....) Throw it all together and I feel like I'm drinking bourbon with Aunt Jemima up in the Smoky Mountains, right before Halloween. I'm also getting a background hint of candy corn. Smooth as hell, not too sweet, at least for my taste, and a nice 90 proofer. Something different, without being overwhelming. Dangerously good. Dessert in a glass.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I guess.

    Let the bashing begin.....!

    when an ABC manager friend and I saw this on the shelf, we're like add bacon favor and ya got all ya need for breakfast. But both of us thought this might be fun to try. Haven't tried it yet, but your review makes it enticing.

    I find the KC Maple pretty sweet, but mixing it with anything at a 1:1 ratio cuts it to a decent sipping level. I made some bacon infused bourbon a while back, and it is delicious mixed with this stuff. I also used it to dip a pancake wrapped around a sausage into, and that was pretty good. I am pretty sure this will replace the fake maple flavored syrup in my pantry.

    I tried a taste of my gf's sample at whisky fest and I was pleasantly surprised, I generally dislike all flavored and infused whiskies I've tried, but for what it is they did a good job. Very sweet and easy going go down. Not my bag really but I'd say this has potential for mass market consumption kind of like that cinnamon stuff people seem to like. Also has potential for cocktails.

    Tried it during the KBF while touring Jim Beam ... actually, I like Royal Crown Maple better. Not a bad novelty drink though ... I'm a sucker for anything maple.
    Sto lat!!!

    Mod - please move this thread to Other American Whiskey. IMHO, It does not belong in the Bourbon Section.
