Being a huge Makers fan and a big barrel proof fan, I couldn't wait to get my hands on this little gem. It didn't disappoint. Very approachable for a barrel proof offering.
Makers Mark Cask Strength Bourbon 375ML
This is Maker’s Mark® Bourbon in all its glory. By eliminating the proofing process normally used before bottling Maker’s Mark®, Cask Strength comes in at 108 to 114 proof. This surprisingly smooth bourbon retains the signature, front-of-palate flavors of Maker’s Mark – while amping up the notes of oak, caramel, vanilla and spice.
Aroma: Big oak, vanilla and smoky charcoal.
Taste: Richer, more robust flavors of spice, vanilla and smoke.
Finish: Longer on the front of the palate with no roughness or bitterness.
