Maker's Mark Cask Strength Bourbon
Maker's Mark Distillery in Loretto, Kentucky has been churning out a steady supply of wheated bourbon (and nothing else) since its founding in 1953. They may occasionally vary the color of their wax by the season but what’s in the bottle of this red winter wheated bourbon hasn’t changed much in 66 years.
The cask strength bottling takes the classic wheated Maker's profile and turns it to 11. Sweet vanilla nose hides a red hot candy kick of flavor, then more yummy vanilla and a drop of molasses before grain and oak bring on a dry finish. Proof varies from about 108-114.
