Traditionalists lament modern day mixologists tinkering with the classics. While the Maple Old Fashioned is a twist on the classic Old Fashioned, the bourbon integrity remains intact in this sweet and flavoursome concoction.
Some like their Maple Old Fashioned’s made with Canadian whisky which tends to be a little smoother and lighter in flavour than a traditional bourbon.
