bottle says Louisville Kentucky mellow as the moon.
I notice there's no tasting notes on this site.
Yes, it's maple filtered, but no idea about the yeast. You're talking about a bottle of Dickel Cascade Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whisky, "Mellow as Moonlight", which was produced by several Kentucky distillers (most notably A. Ph. Stitzel in Louisville, and later Schenley [Buffalo Trace] in Frankfort) until the 1950s when Tennessee repealed its state prohibition laws that prevented distilling, enabling the "new" Dickel Cascade distillery to be rebuilt near the site of the original, in 1958.
While production was in Kentucky, they did build charcoal mellowing vats and maintained the Lincoln County Process filtering through charred sugar maple. That was essential to maintaining what character of the whiskey that could be kept while it was being produced in another state, far from its home.
