My girlfriend got me this as a gift because I love maple syrup. I've tried both the burbon infused maple syrup and the cinnamon vanilla infused maple syrup. They're both good and both deserve 5 stars, but the cinnamon vanilla maple syrup is UNREAL - I highly recommend if for anyone that like maple syrup and/or cinnamon and/or vanilla. The flavor of the burbon barrels is pretty subtle, but the flavor of the cinnamon and vanilla were very strong (in a good way). My only complaint is that my girlfriend judges me when I put this syrup on ice cream or spoonfuls of nutella. whatevaa
The bottle looked really nice, it's a great size too, I'll have to wipe it down before I give it though because it seems like in the process of filling the bottle some of it leaked out the side
For several years, it has been a fun game to gift certain family members with syrups, honeys and salts that have been touted as the best (by someone, somewhere). One participant is so enthusiastic about Vermont Maple Syrup that he has received large quantities of a particular favorite for special occasions and was thrilled. He is not a sugar lush, but does enjoy his VMS in/on a variety of foods. Until I ordered the Cinnamon+Vanilla infused, our family's maple syrup enthusiasts were split, having two favorites from another company - one cinnamon infused, the other vanilla. So impressed were they with the prior favorite, it was added to several Christmas Wish Lists! That has changed - maple syrup reamins on the wish list, (I have been informed it will continue to be a favorite gift for several), but the brand has changed to Runamok. I trust UG to consistently offer a great selection of out of the ordinary, quality products, so when I saw the Runamok line of syrups and read their story, I knew these would make a perfect surprise. What I did not expect was their becoming the instant favorites over all other syrups that our family currenty knows of on the entire planet! This is saying something. No really, it is saying a lot about the quality, flavor, consistency, color, aroma...No kidding, there have been family taste tests to determine the best of all brands.There is a tie for most beloved - the Cinnamon Vanilla & Bourbon Barrel Aged currently hold the shared title. Evidently, different applications warrant one not being hailed the king over the other. One may be preferred for a savory dish, while the other may be perfect for a particular smoothie concoction (this varies by day). I have not introduced the other lovely-sounding flavors due to the current passion for these. Not being a syrup enthusiast ever, I still must admit, I truly appreciate the depth of flavor these add to dishes & incorporate them in many recipes. I have even enjoyed a bit on a crepe!
