What’s the origin of the Maple Bacon Bourbon?

I first started playing with the recipe at home for Sunday Football with friends. For games that were early in the day, we’d always have good maple syrup on hand for the pancakes to go along with bacon. I loved the flavor and thought it could make a great cocktail. How would you describe the taste to someone who hasn’t had this before?
