Sapling Vermont Maple Rye Whiskey, 35%, $40

Located in the heart of Vermont’s syrup belt, Saxton’s River Distillery makes both a Vermont maple flavored Rye and a maple flavored Bourbon whiskey. The rye is the better of the two and does a solid job of mixing oak, cinnamon, black pepper, and rye spice notes with vanilla and rich maple syrup. The rye whiskey is a little young but the maple syrup complements it well and is more companion than cover.  83 Points
