This is my second bottle and they are defiantly a bit different and not just proof. On the noise I get cherry, oak, green apple, and hint of ethanol. The palate opens with a sweet cherry cough syrup, and oak not much else. The mid palate is a little spicy for a wheater, also some proof shows through. The finish is syrupy and thick, with heavy cherry and oak notes. At the time of this tasting I had a slight head cold so I might not be getting all the tasting notes. Current bottle is a 21-8 proof 112.5 ABV 56.25%, packs a pretty good punch. I would encourage anyone that is into Bourbon to try this one, not like other makers products, and very affordable for a cask strength weather, enjoy.
Exactly what one imagines an amped up version of regular Maker’s Mark would be. Most all the aspects of regular Maker’s are amplified here. In addition, there is a new, strong spiciness that comes with the cask territory.
Nose: Vanilla, nuttiness, faint woodiness
Taste, Sip: A definite oak or other wood-centric taste mainly, followed by a fairly aggressive spice.
Taste, Chew: The spice cools and down, and you’re left with a more pronounced vanilla and maybe even a cherry note that emerges.
Finish: Spice, oak, and ever the present vanilla.
