Our third limited release from the Maker’s Mark® Wood Finishing Series joins our previous years’ expressions in honoring our signature bourbon – this time, amplifying the naturally present dried fruit and woody richness in a distinctively Maker’s® way. We like to say it tastes exactly how our barrel warehouse smells, with rich figgy notes complemented by tobacco undertones and a pleasantly dank woodiness. Unlike the lingering finish, the bottles won’t stay long on shelves, so ask your local retailer about availability near you.
With our previous two limited releases, we used different unique staves to reach a specific taste profile. For our 2021 release, we took it further by only searing one side of our staves – leaving the other side raw – to extract separate flavors from each side of the individual staves.
