Maker’s Mark Wood Finishing BRT-02

“BRT” or Maker’s speak for “barrel rotation” is the 2022 Wood Finshing series’ attempt to highlight “high” rickhouse flavor profiles (01) vs. “low” floor rickhouse flavor (02). This paricular bottling starts off with intense and rich floral aromas, with sorghum, molasses, and a subtle nuttiness. On the palate lots of chocolate notes, baked cinnamon, and a long creamy finish make this a rich dessert worthy whiskey. I’ve always thought bottom floor barrels tasted maltier and this is no exception. Big, round, and juicy!
