Each annual limited release highlights a different, unique aspect of the original Maker's Mark taste profile- illustrating how variations in wood can amplify the depths of flavor within the Marker's Mark bourbon.
For the 2020 release, Maker’s Mark SE4 X PR5, we set out to create an expression to showcase the vanilla and caramel from our long-standing approach to seasoning our wood outside for a full year.
Maker's Mark Wood Finishing Series 2020 SE4 X PR5 is a marriage of virgin toasted American & French oak staves that has been barrel finished & bottled at 112.5 proof. The result is a completely unique bourbon that offers notes of amplified vanilla, warm baking spice and creamy caramel.
Nose: Aroma is very pleasant.
Palate: This is extremely rich and very balanced in flavour.
Finish: Quite rich and lovely smooth texture.
