  • Excerpt: I think I've learned that Maker's just isn't for me. They don't make awful products but, at the same time, I think it's just a profile that doesn't jive with me. The odd astringency, the cinnamon, and weird wood integration just doesn't make me pine to purchase products from their line.

  • Nose:

    Molasses. Mildly astringent. Honey, spicy pepper, big brown sugar.

  • Taste:

    Metallic spice, maple, clove. Some minor minty dill (weird), lots of cinnamon. All of the Maker's Ive had thus far has a weird splenda / metallic note to it and this is sadly no different. The heat is managed very well here though surprisingly. That might also be the red hot cinnamon masking, though.

  • Finish:

    Surprisingly long, which is nice, but its very hot. Hotter than the palate. Not terribly complex. Some odd splenda, metallic, red hots.

  • Overall:

    I think I've learned that Maker's just isn't for me. They don't make awful products but, at the same time, I think it's just a profile that doesn't jive with me. The odd astringency, the cinnamon, and weird wood integration just doesn't make me pine to purchase products from their line. I'm giving this a Rank 4. It's fine, and has no glaring flaws - just not the profile I love and it carried a hefty price to boot.
