Mount Mansfield Organic Pure Maple Syrup, Vermont, 1 pint
True maple syrup is hard to harvest, comes in different grades, is seasonal, and costs a lot more than grocery store offerings. Like all such products, some are made in a more industrial scale, and some are hand-made artisan creations, so there are a lot of variances in intensity of flavor, nuance, and like wine, satisfying finishes.
I sampled several syrups with infusions, like bourbon, coffee, cinnamon and clove, some I admired more than others, and others which knocked me completely out. My very favorite maple syrup comes from a Winoski, Vermont producer called Mount Mansfield Maple Products, and their Pure Maple Syrup has a more sophisticated flavor and texture than any others I tried. The Best.
