Good juice. Over priced @ 69. Stick with MMCS.

General description

Full disclosure, I like Maker's. However, this special release is a puzzle. It is very ethonol and vanilla forward on the nose. It is even heavier on the pallet with vanilla and a strong ethonol aftertaste. There are some lightly smoky notes but not what I was expecting given the idea and science behind the release. The flavor is just not balanced in my opinion. There are good notes in the pour, I just don't think they are working harmoniously together.

This is another great Greensboro Buyers Club selection. I knew what I was tasting, but I am certain if this were a blind taste, I would not have guessed Maker's. After a splash, it had some of the trademark wheater' aftertaste. With the heavy ethenol and the wheat finish, I would have guessed Rebel Yell 100. My favorite of the Maker's is definitely the 46. At $36-39 it's a great value with few flaws. RC6 has more going on than basic Maker's, but at $60 to $65 in NC...??? I can't suggest it. IMO, it lacks the premium extras one might expect for $60-70.

General description

Very spicy, hot. First sip is all heat, second sip has the flavors coming through. Sadly, it isn't the butterscotch dessert whiskey the Seared Bu was. The sweet notes are barely there.
