    How about some feedback on Black Maple Hill 16Y.

    Very woody, very good underneath the wood. Expensive.
    Try either the 11yo or 14yo, I'd suggest -- more approachable, and less spendy.

    I agree. I love all the BMHs, but the 11 and 14 yo's are probably the best value for your money. The older ones get quite woody, which I like, but I'm not sure it's worth the extra money. The younger ones are still quite tasty!

    Thanks! I have a bottle of the BMH 16 and Blantons. I have had the Blantons before and was impressed. I did taste a slight woody flavor with the Blantons. Anyway I was going to save one of them for a special occasion! Toasting my son's wedding! And open the other!!!

    BMH 16yo is one of my all-time favorite bourbons. Let us know what you think of it.

    I do love the BMH 16, but notice that woodiness only slightly - irregardless I like it very much.

    Had some of the 11 last night (meant to pour 16) and it is definitely one of my favorites, there is a lot of vanilla caramelly-brown sugaryness on the nose.

    Well I couldn't stand it!

    I decided to try the BMH 16Y tonight. I did not want to toast my son's wedding with bourbon I did not like! I am not a connoisseur but I have been drinking bourbon a long time and I know what I like and this is good stuff! I didn't detect as woody a flavor as I expected. I would describe this burbon as unique character.
