Bourbon — Kentucky, USA
Reviewed April 8, 2023 (edited September 5, 2023)
55.15% abv; 110.3 proof Open 3 weeks Nose - Cinnamon, toasted oak, burnt marshmallow, nutmeg, pie crust, vanilla bean, and medium ethanol. Palate - Apple pie with heavy cinnamon, glazed doughnuts, sweet cereal grain, and dry baking spices. Finish is medium with spicy and drying oak, fresh nutmeg, cinnamon powder, grainy caramel, and sharp ethanol. These combo packs are normally $60. When I saw them at retail for $45 in Kentucky I had to buy it considering Maker's 46 CS is normally $60 and Private Selection is normally $70-75. This is not as good as I remember, but I did try Maker's 46 CS before ever trying a Private Selection or Wood Finishing Series. It's still an excellent product that is eminently drinkable, but the Wood Finishing Series is simply better.
