Smell of modelling glue on the nose, with a hint of bright apple lurking beneath. Vanilla emerges after a bit of sniffing. Creamy mouthfeel on sipping, with same vanilla first arising before a note of leather and cinnamon creeps in. The taste sensation fades away to leave a persistentdrying, fizzing sensation in the mouth.

Tasting @ L&B whiskybar Amsterdam. Round 4.

A sidestep to Kentucky for this round. We got the 45% uncoloured and chill filtered golden Maker's Mark.

At first nosing a bit alcoholic but the sweet stuff leads. A subtle vanilla is accompanied by caramel, toffee and honey. Besides the sweetness, this one is very wheaty and therefore very smooth. When you get past the sweetness, some fresh wood is detectable.

The sweet and spicy palate adds a few new elements. Hazelnut, sweet popcorn and white bread are amongst them.
It's a corn whisky so the caramel/honey sweetness here is obvious. The spice comes from the spicy young American oak I guess.

The smooth long finish offers some white bread and dry fruits besides the lingering honey sweetness.
The 2nd zip surprisingly had more power than the first.

A nicely balanced and sweet dram, but when I compare this one to the only other Kentucky bourbon I had, this one lost it in comparison to the magnificent Blanton's single barrel.

76 points.

A good benchmark to compare other burbons, Maker's Mark has a syrupy smoothness that makes it palatable to all who taste it.

Nose

Distinctly mellow caramel and vanilla scent. One must sniff deeply to get any hint that this is an alcohol.

Palate

Thick sweet caramel coats the tongue giving way to a smooth toffee and vanilla finish.

Finish

surprisingly fleeting for as syrupy as this burbon is. But overall it is pleasing. Aftertaste is of light oak and spice.

General description

Being a card carrying Maker's ambassador I have nothing but love for this bourbon. Yes it is light, sweet and uncomplicated but value it for what it is, an affordable mixer that is great with ginger ale.

Maker's first opened my eyes to bourbon, and will always have a place in my heart. Not real complex, not real bold, but always a consistant sip.

Nose

Light, hints of vanilla, and carmel.

Palate

Sweet simple syrup.

a promising nose of syrup, dried red fruit and vanilla oil that really doesn't deliver afterwards. the arrival is harsh, followed by sweetness (bubblegum),m i 're vanilla and burnt sugar. in the finish there's a metallic mineral note, along with creme brulee and sweet spice. all in all a bit too rough and unbalanced with a tin development to become a favorite. nice but no more than that...
