Use of red winter wheat instead of rye produces a noticeably sweeter, less bitter, less harsh whisky. Pouring a rich golden amber colour with an enticing nose of butterscotch and vanilla bean; the palate is smooth with delectable toffee and milk chocolate flavour followed by a lightly spiced finish.
Full, yet delicate. Well-rounded with the distinctive caramel aroma of charred oak and a hint of vanilla. Rich in flavour, yet soft on the palate. A subtle level of sweetness that reflects the marriage of grain and oak.
Delightful strands of exotic fruit and honey, fruit cake and oak on the nose adds to the feeling of class. The palate is lush, pleasingly deep and malty. A firm nuttiness adds extra oily, chewability to the toffee and the finish is Dry. An old faithful of a bourbon. Never lets you down and being from the wheaty school always shows good oak balance.
Maker’s Mark boasts a golden amber colour; crème brulée aroma; sweet vanilla and caramel flavours with a smooth spicy finish. Serve over ice. Pairs well with braised short ribs, chili, pulled pork sandwiches, and even as a marinade.
Full, yet delicate and well-rounded on the nose, possessing the distinctive caramel aroma of charred oak with a hint of vanilla. Rich in flavour, yet soft on the palate this Bourbon is distinctive and complex and balanced. On the finish there is a lovely bittersweet impression of caramel, toffee and oak spice.
