Flavored whiskey is a hot trend right now, and maple-flavored whiskeys seem to be a particularly popular niche. Some are done poorly, with the result smelling less like whiskey and more like syrup; and others are done well, with finesse and balance.
In the latter category is the *JUST-LAUNCHED* Knob Creek Smoked Maple Bourbon. This is Knob Creek’s first-ever flavored bourbon, and they really do a good job here: Smoke and maple are definitely there on the nose and palate, but they are subtle and subdued and serve to complement (not overpower) the bourbon base. Without question, this is one of the best flavored whiskeys in the market right now.
FYI: The Knob Creek Smoked Maple Bourbon is 90-proof, so it’s best enjoyed neat or with an ice cube to open it up a bit. Best idea for the money? Start sipping this with a decadent dark chocolate dessert, then finish up after-dinner by the fireplace. Heaven.
The 750ml bottles normally sell for $34.99, but we’ve got this *ON SALE* right now for only $29.99.
