Beginning fall 2014, Maker’s Mark will introduce Maker’s Mark Cask Strength, which is Maker’s Mark straight from the barrel – uncut and unfiltered. With a proof of approximately 108-114, Cask Strength retains the essence of original Maker’s Mark, with even more front-of-the-palate flavors. It just amplifies the taste that Maker’s Mark fans have come to love over the past 60 years.
Maker’s Mark Cask Strength Review from Bourbonr.com:
Nose: Caramel, there’s a curry-like spice smell to it, sweet tea, when I go back there’s a heavy burnt sugar note
Taste: Orange peel, banana sweetness, lighter flavors than expected from a cask strength, charred corn
Finish: A little short but lots of warm apples and spice
