Black Maple Hill 23 Year Old Single Barrel Rye
Black Maple Hill is owned by Californian company, CVI Brands. They do not own a distillery and contract the bottling of the brand to outside sources, initially with Julian Van Winkle in 2000, and then Kentucky Bourbon Distillers.
This was matured in a single charred White Oak cask for over 23 years, and bottled by Kentucky Bourbon Distillers from cask #9 at Willett distillery.
It is believed much of the rye whisky of this age in the KBD warehouses at the time was old Bernheim distilled Cream of Kentucky, the same whiskey Buffalo Trace blended through the much-loved Van Winkle Family Reserve Rye in 2004.
