Day 26 of #30daysofbourbon for the #30daybourbonchallenge #bhm Maker's Mark Private Select MVWOL #4 SiB 54.3% ABV A new whiskey friend Matt Allen graciously shared a sample of the 4th barrel pick from Miami Valley Water of Life. I waited until today to open this sample, HOWEVER, Brent Sherri Ross gave me a sneak peek last Friday. I found it to be rather yummy and was so excited for another sip tonight. I don't typically go for wheated bourbons. I am definently a rye spice dude. That said, this is so incredibly yummy. Great legs and mouthfeel. golden to amber in color. Nose: Cherries for days, caramel, a little oak, Palate: oak, a little spice, brown sugar. Finish: Strong with tastes of chocolate and tobacco. This is an excellent bourbon. This group does some amazing picks. 4.25/5

    @ContemplativeFox MM46 and the Private Selects are the way to go. I'm not much of a traditional MM man either.

    Hmm, I usually go for rye over wheat too. I've been disappointed by Maker's in the past, but maybe I should be on the lookout for one of these picks!
