Sweet, smooth, rich, and a pop of spice. When I am craving a glass of bourbon, this is what I want. The Maker's Mark 46 barrel program is so cool. It is a remarkable way to get customized casks of the most consistently delicious and available wheated Bourbon out there. The creamy palate screams out wheat and fulfills all of your hedonistic Bourbon desires. The additional American oak staves crank up that traditional vanilla flavors and the French staves combined with the high proof dial up the spicy finish. I loved the first cask we chose earlier this year for pure indulgence, but this bottling has it beat because it tickles that itch while also bringing a previously unknown depth and complexity.
