Maker’s Mark Kentucky Straight Bourbon

Maker’s Mark Kentucky Straight Bourbon ($45) 700ml (40%) and I can’t for the life of me understand why it took so long to taste it.  Each batch is totally hand-made from a single source of iron-free, limestone spring water, malted barley, wheat and yellow corn which fermented in old cypress tanks (not stainless steel) then it’s double-distilled and aged in old oak barrels.  It has a beautifully smooth oak and vanilla notes, plump, warming texture in the mouth and nutty length of flavour.
