Maker's Mark "FAE-01" 2021 Limited Release, Kentucky Straight Bourbon
|Availability:||In stock (4)|
The 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.
For Maker’s Mark Wood Finishing Series 2021 release, they set out to create an expression to pay homage to our unique copper still design and celebrate our non-chill filtration process. This approach retains more of the fatty acid esters in the bourbon, resulting in bigger fruit notes and viscosity. FAE-01 is named for the stave used to finish the bourbon.
