Black Maple Hills - TheEngineer - 03-12-2013 07:08 AM

Err... having found out that this bottle is made by some dude in California with nowhere near the history or credentials of some of the other "cultish" bourbons did not make me any less a fan of this bottling. Except I've now finished both bottles that KC sold me and I need more.

This is by far my favorite Bourbon!! Unfortunately, we have people like The Eng who treat it as a cult whiskey, and it HAS become a cult whiskey. We used to be able to get it by the case. Now, however, we can only get it three bottles a month. So, I get my one bottle, and Eng gets his two which leaves nada for everyone else. Oh well.

BTW, can"t get it Mike - for awhile. It's actually a blend of several small batch Bourbons of various old singles.

Smile okay, let me know when I can come back in.

I was in a boubon bar and the most expensive dram was in order

Greedy lil' sucker 'aint him. WW

I believe the black label is the 16 yo which retails at about $140 per.


RE: Black Maple Hills - TheEngineer - 03-14-2013 06:05 AM

KC, if you could get that, that would be GREAT! (a tony the tiger ref).

I asked the eminently easy on the eyes bartender and she told me that her restaurant gets 6 bottle of that a year......... max.

Re "the eminently easy on the eyes bartender"....

This old world needs a bunch more of those!


RE: Black Maple Hills - TheEngineer - 03-14-2013 09:24 AM

A big amen to that!


RE: Black Maple Hills - Kcwhippet - 06-06-2013 06:59 PM

Haven't been able to get this in for almost two months! Darn! I want my BMH.


RE: Black Maple Hills - TheEngineer - 08-14-2013 08:08 PM

KC,

Any luck on the 16 yo version?

are they getting Pappy like in their lack of supply?

Mike


RE: Black Maple Hills - Kcwhippet - 08-15-2013 04:22 PM

No BMH of any type available.


RE: Black Maple Hills - TheEngineer - 01-26-2015 08:03 AM

I just saw some behind the glass now for $250 a bottle for the old regular bottles......


RE: Black Maple Hills - TheEngineer - 03-28-2015 06:49 PM

I had given a bottle to a friend of mine some time ago. Tonight I got him to open it for us.... so blood nice, so smooth, so flavorful. We drained that puppy......


RE: Black Maple Hills - Kcwhippet - 09-14-2015 10:04 AM

BMH was sourced from Kentucky Bourbon Distillers when it was only a blender and made by Heaven Hill Distillers. Now KBD has started distilling their own Bourbons (Rowan's Mill, Johnny Drum and a few others) and aren't doing anything for BMH anymore. So, BMH has been sourcing their bourbon from some no name distillery in Oregon. It will never be the same again. That said you can get it from K&L out in Redwood City but it's not what you had before.
