The Algonquin Maple Old Fashioned presents a captivating, maple-orange tinted hue, a visual testament to its rich blend of ingredients. This color, reminiscent of autumnal sunsets, instantly draws the eye and promises a unique taste experience.
On the nose, this beverage exudes a comforting warmth. The applejack provides a robust, fruity foundation, while the orange adds a refreshing, citrusy top note. The Angostura bitters contribute a complex, spicy aroma, creating an intriguing balance. But it's the maple syrup that truly defines the bouquet, lending a sweet, woodsy fragrance that is both inviting and familiar.
Upon first sip, the Algonquin Maple Old Fashioned delights with its harmonious blend of flavors. The applejack, robust and slightly tart, sets the stage, complemented by the zesty sweetness of the orange. The maple syrup weaves through the drink, providing a smooth, rich sweetness that perfectly counters the bitterness of the Angostura. It's a dance of flavors - fruity, sweet, and just a touch bitter - that's both complex and approachable.
The texture is as noteworthy as the taste. Silky and smooth, the beverage coats the palate with a velvety richness. This luxurious mouthfeel is punctuated by the subtle crispness of the orange and the gentle bite of the bitters, making each sip a multi-layered experience.
Finally, the finish of the Algonquin Maple Old Fashioned is a lingering note of its defining elements. The maple and orange gently recede, leaving a warm, sweet aftertaste that is beautifully offset by the lingering spice of the bitters. This well balanced conclusion rounds off a drink that is not just a cocktail, but an experience for the senses, perfect for savoring slowly as its flavors and textures unfold.
