6. Sapling Bourbon Whiskey Vermont Maple
This premium craft bourbon is made using old world techniques and new world flavors. Though they also make lighter liqueurs which are great for cocktails, this dark maple bourbon is an amazing after dinner sipper.

7. Cleveland Underground Sugar Maple Finished Bourbon
This bourbon offers a twist on the idea of a maple flavored bourbon. In this case, instead of infusing the bourbon with maple syrup, the barrels themselves were made from sugar maple. The result is a uniquely complex offering which loses some of the caramel normally present in bourbon from the oak in the barrels. However, the caramel surprisingly isn’t missed as the maple imparts its own subtle sweetness to the bourbon. Hard to describe, this is a bourbon best experienced first-hand.
