This is a cask strength expression from Maker’s Mark which has become part of their core range. It’s NAS and bottled at 56.6% ABV.
Nose: Cinnamon, brown sugar, vanilla, young grain, and a small amount of oak.
Palate: Caramel and barrel char lead the way with vanilla and toffee rounding it out.
Finish: Heat lingers on tip of tongue with oak, brown sugar, and corn remaining.
Rating: 90/100 – Nice to try a cask strength expression from Maker’s.
Value for the money: I think the 750ml bottles retail around $60 which I think is a fair price for what you get.
