Makers Mark Private Selection Dipped Doughnuts - 904
Bourbon — USA
Tasted February 9, 2022
So after lunch today, we stopped at a favorite liquor store out of my regular market. Saw this stuff and it yelled out to me. My wife says Miles (7 yo grandson bourbon lover, at just a taste, but that's another story) will love it by that name. And he did. Pour up an oz and the aroma fills the room. Heavy on butterscotch and there's some bazooka bubble gum deep in the glass. As for the namesake, yeah there's some vanilla cream cake doughnut in there. (I made Miles spell donut in order to secure a drop and he says yes to the donuts too.) This is not terribly complex but based on prior experience with the barrel stave program it's gonna be way better after a couple months if it lasts than long. The ethanol is a tad harsh on the tongue but then it's 109 proof. Putting that aside, caramel apples and butterscotch lead the way and it's big and rich. That vanilla cream donut is lurking in the background and comes on strong at the finish. Since it looks this will be a Super Bowl hit. think I will get another to take home and savor!
