Maple Old Fashioned with Piggyback and Bacon!

Who makes it? Whistlepig Distillery

Mash Bill 18yr: 9% rye, 15% malted rye, and 6% malted barley

Where it’s from: Shoreham, Vermont

When we did our Whistlepig review with Chris Helmly he brought up his twist on a Old Fashioned and instead of the sugar cube he used Whistlepig Maple Syrup. I had to take it one step further and candy some thick cut bacon with brown sugar and the same Whistlepig Maple Syrup. Plus, I added a couple dashes of bitters and a flaming orange peel, first time and I lit it on FIRE!

How can you get better than whiskey soaked candied bacon. Stir, drink and then eat up that bacon then toss more in!
