Slight smoky, bacon flavor version of an old fashioned. Grade B maple syrup makes a big difference. To make bacon infused bourbon : fry several bacon slices and pour into bourbon. Let Stand at room temp for a few hours and place in freezer. Remove fat and strain bourbon.

Moderated slightly to add

Moderated slightly to add instructions and to conform to PDT cocktail book, which specifies Four Roses, rather than the poster's Woodruff Reserve. Any bourbon would do, I'm sure.
