whiskey maple old fashioned

Every now and then I love a good cocktail and my current favorite these days is an Old Fashioned. Today I’m putting a bit of a fall spin on a classic recipe and creating a maple orange Old Fashioned.

When it comes to whiskey, I don’t know too much so I turned to Whiskey5.com for help. They assisted me in discovering what flavor would go best with my recipe and taste buds. There are so many whiskeys to choose from and it can be intimidating to know which one to try. The Whiskey5 website was created to make it easy to find the right whiskey for you and to understand which flavors go into each whiskey.

I completed my flavor profile and was matched with Bulleit Bourbon which fits under the sweet profile. Sweet whiskeys offer up a surprisingly smooth creaminess and notes of fresh fruits and dried apricots, which sounds fabulous to me! Not only does Whiskey5.com match you with a whiskey, they also help you find out where you can buy it.

Besides a sweet profile, they have four others: smooth, spicy, bold, and smokey. Smooth has a rich and creamy adventure for your senses, Spicy is filled with fruitful highlights, hints of vanilla and peppery spices, Bold is a mix of oak, dark fruits and charred smokiness with a long rich finish, and Smokey gives deep flavors like intense rich fruit zest and spicy oak tannins.

The website was super easy to use and take the test to discover your whiskey profile was not only simple, but super fun. Today I’m sharing a recipe for a maple orange Old Fashioned that is not only perfect for fall, but also all year round. It is simple to make, sweet, and very delicious.
