Black Maple Hill is a small batch distillery producing this simple spirit, with no age statement.
The bourbon is extremely citrus in character, with big orange notes and nose leading into some wood tones. The finish is smooth and sweet, but not too much so. Overall it’s very well balanced, a good but young bourbon that won’t bowl you over with complicated undertones. It’s harshly smoky and a little boozy unless you add water, so don’t be stingy with the agua.
