Maker's Mark Cask Strength Review
With its cask strength 54.4 percent ABV, this bourbon has a spicier, more intense profile than the rest of the Maker’s Mark lineup. Some swirling in the glass blows off some of the headier alcohol, revealing a sweet core of vanilla, caramel, and a hint of leather. The high alcohol content coats the palate with a pleasant spicy sensation, like a fiery curry (heat not flavor).
