Raided Score: 88 Publication: Breaking Bourbon Excerpt: If you’re a fan of Maker’s Mark, wheated bourbons, or just want to say you were able to try a limited release this year without breaking the bank, Maker’s Mark RC6 is a bottle that you’ll want to seek out.

Finished with the addition of ten toasted RC6-profile staves in the barrel.

Not sure why it was named like a droid, but this one was definitely worth the wait.
