What I Think:
For the purposes of this review, I whipped up a batch of Hazelnut Pancakes. I love the way this syrup accents the rich, nutty flavor of the pancakes.
The flavor of this syrup is rich and complex. It has a warm taste to it, like the warm flavors that I crave during the autumn months.
It is sweet, of course, but, I find it to be a pleasant sweetness that is complemented by its warm, toasty, nutty background of flavors. I taste maple … but I taste so much more with this syrup. It’s quite remarkable; a very memorable maple syrup.
My Final Thoughts:
Very good maple syrup; one of the best that I’ve tried. I love the complexity of it. It makes a wonderful pancake topper, but also quite nice when used to sweeten a chai tea! I added it to the Original Masala Chai from Yogic Chai in lieu of honey or sugar, and it added a really interesting dimension to the cup.
