I thought I had reviewed this ages ago, but I guess I hadn't as I couldn't find it through search engines. This is the last of the bottle that's been open for a number of months (I used it mostly as a mixer). To my knowledge, it's the only flavoured bottle in the Knob Creek portfolio.
The colour is a medium copper. On the nose the dominant note is - wait for it - maple syrup. But there is a backbone of wood smoke, chicory and Mackintosh toffee. Not much else going on.
On the palate the maple is still dominant but shares the stage with oak, soft vanilla and black cherry.
The short finish is maple, oak and a hint of wood smoke. This is not great, but as far as flavoured whiskies go, it's not bad. Makes a sweet, enjoyable mixer with ginger ale (and makes a far-too-sweet Manhattan). Purchase at your peril.
