If you can imagine the caramel, vanilla and fruity notes of Maker's Maker's turned all the way up, you'd have a pretty good idea of what Maker's Maker's Cask Strength is like. Of course, the best way to get to know it is to sample some for yourself. While the higher proof delivers a bold bourbon presence in cocktails, we recommend drinking this surprisingly smooth barrel-proof whisky neat, on the rocks or with a splash.
This is Maker's Mark's Bourbon in its purest form. Bottled at barrel proof and nonchill filtered, Maker's Mark's Cask Strength ranges from 108 to 114 proof depending on the barrels.
Surprisingly smooth, this bourbon retains the signature, front-of-the-palate flavors of Maker's Mark while amping up the notes of oak, caramel, vanilla and spice.
Aroma: Big oak, vanilla and smoky charcoal
Taste: Richer, more robust flavors of spice, vanilla and smoke
Finish: Longer finish on front of tongue with no roughness or bitterness
This is Maker's Mark with nothing added to get in its way. Certainly not a beginner's bourbon, Maker's Mark Cask Strength is for the enthusiast who's after bolder flavors and higher proofs. After being screen filtered to remove wood pieces and char, Maker's Mark Cask Strength goes straight to the bottle at a range of 108 to 114 proof. This wouldn't work with just any whisky. Maker's Mark Cask Strength is well crafted with carefully selected ingredients and aged until it's just right. While it may seem like a recent addition to the Maker's family, in truth Cask Strength has always been at the core of every bourbon we produce.
Gold - Intl Spirits Challenge 2022
"Eye-catching bronze, burnt orange color. Aromatics are sweet, raisiny at first then they unfold in plump waves of cookie batter, spiced orange, candied citrus rind, honey wheat toast. Warming flavors of cigar tobacco, candied almond, treacle, butter brickle, honeysuckle make for endless gustatory enjoyment. Finishes slightly fiery (no surprise), toasty, sap sweet, oaky, very intense. Not recommended for bourbon novices."
