Review: Saddleback Maple Bacon Whisky

Posted by Arctic Wolf on May 13, 2018

Saddleback Maple Bacon Whisky is produced by Proof Brands. The company currently produces whisky, rum and vodka all of which are bottled in unique stubby 500 ml bottles. The brands and the spirits are the creation of Michael Riley, a veteran of the alcohol beverage industry. Michael spent 5 years as the Director of Spirits for the LCBO (Liquor Control Board of Ontario). He has also has worked with such brands as Crown Royal, Absolut, Captain Morgan, Chivas Regal and Molson Canadian.

This Little Piggy!

Proof Brand’s Maple Bacon Whisky was released in 2017, marking the 50th Anniversary of the British Saddleback Pig, which they claim is the world’s best hog for bacon. Michael blends his Proof Canadian Whisky(a blend of Canadian prairie rye and wheat which is distilled with pristine water from the Rockies) with natural maple syrup and bacon flavours.

Here is a link to my full review:

Review: Saddleback Maple Bacon Whisky

“… The initial aroma speaks loudly to the presence of maple, however there is also a light backdrop of wood spice. As I give the glass time to breathe I begin to glimpse the presence of the smoky bacon aroma. It is somewhat smothered by the overt maple, but hints of a light smoky bacon are evident …”

I hope everyone enjoys this review of this interesting new flavoured Whisky! For your added enjoyment I have included a nice cocktail suggestion, This Little Piggy!

Chimo!
