Maker's Mark Cask Strength Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whisky
This new offering is bottled at 113 proof, making it fiery but flavorful. Expect a stab of alcohol even while inhaling the lovely crème brûlée-like aroma. The palate is extremely drying, showing mainly oak at first, but opening up to caramel, toffee and burnt orange peel. Adding much-needed water pales the taste to cinnamon Red Hots.
