This is original 'red wax' Maker's Mark that received additional aging in barrels containing internal "seared" French oak staves.
This is original 'red wax' Maker's Mark that received additional aging in barrels containing internal "seared" French oak staves. The original Maker's Mark, being a wheated bourbon (instead of rye, which is typically used), is rather mellow and easy-to-drink.The French oak staves in '46' add firm, complex dry spices (led by warming cinnamon, followed by nutmeg and clove), herb (a suggestion of Green Chartreuse, perhaps?), and some polished leather 'grip', which dovetails well with Maker's trademark layered sweetness (caramel, vanilla, a hint of honey). I'm also picking up some dried fruit in the background. The seared oak stave influence is somewhat aggressive, but never to the point of being excessive.
