Extra Rare: Golden in colour, it is the mildest in the range. This pure maple syrup is produced exclusively with sap harvested during the first days of the run. It is light in the mouth, featuring a subtle caramel and honeysuckle bouquet with a hint of cinnamon and a lingering flavour.
Great Harvest: This syrup is the most popular because it is readily available but also because of its complex and mild mouthfeel. This Canada Grade A maple syrup is both extra fine and richly flavoured. Its aromatic profile brings to mind warm, buttered brown sugar, date purée, English toffee and green anise with a subtle hint of curry. Flavourful, it is full-bodied, rounded, textured, distinct and syrupy, but not overwhelming, and has a very long finish.
Late Harvest: This is a dark syrup produced at the end of the harvest. Intensely dark, it is purely delicious. With its suggestion of rye, caramel and roasted sugar, it is perfect for your recipes; use it in simmered dishes, pastries or to spice up your salad dressings. In Canada, maple syrup is available in five different categories. The main grading criterion is the colour, expressed in terms of degree of light transmission. The later the harvest, the darker the syrup; it also becomes less complex, and has a more pronounced caramel flavour.
