MAKER'S MARK CASK STRENGTHRegular price $ 51.99
55.05%ALC./VOL KENTUCKY STRAIGHT BOURBOUN
Nose: Faint hints of cherries, cinnamon, and vanilla. It’s overall on the sweet side. The nose is in-line with the standard Maker’s Mark profile, but surprisingly not as potent as I would have thought being over 113 proof.
Palate: Nice full-bodied mouthfeel that coats your tongue. Notes of caramel, toasted nuts, and cinnamon provide a wonderfully flavored sip. The palate also follows the standard Maker’s flavor profile, but it has much more life in it.
Finish: Medium to long finish that has a great mix of sweet and spicy. These contrasting notes play off each other nicely as they keep the high and lows in check. The tail end of the finish concludes with earthy tones. It may be on the low end of the proof range for a cask strength bourbon, but it still packs a decent amount of heat.
