Tap 357, 40.5%

Price: $30.00 Issue: Summer 2012 Reviewer: Lew Bryson

Nose is full of a wonderful, authentic maple syrup smell with a warming background of whisky. The maple's there in the mouth, too; not overwhelming, and blending well with the whisky. There's a good balance here, for what it is, and the finish is clean. If you like maple, this is going to do it: it's not cloying or thick, and could make a great cocktail with — really — bacon.
