INTRO: Sporting the new label from the 2020 revision, this is the 3rd batch of Maker's Mark Cask Strength bourbon whiskey landing in 2021. In 2020, Maker's has elected to give their Cask Strength releases more visible batch numbers, no doubt in an effort to remain in parity with their competitors. Regardless, this is a NAS expression bottled at 54.7% ABV and a recent market wide price drop. Let's get to it.
Big brown butter notes, toffee, sweet oak and caramelized sugar.
Sweet on the palate, plenty of body and complexity. Light apple pie and brown sugar note.
Long satisfying finish that’s a brown sugar overload with some nougat on the side.
Overall, another winner from Maker's Mark that continues to bat up there with Larceny Barrel Proof and most batches of Elijah Craig Barrel Proof
