This trio combine wonderfully with maple to the fore.
I suspect this cocktail originated in the USA or the even UK and, as far as I'm aware, (please send me info if you know differently,) this cocktail was always based on bourbon whiskey. If it had been created by a Canadian, where the maple leaf is very much a national symbol, then it's likely a Canadian rye whisky, arguably more appropriate, would have been used.
