Once again, I'm a little late. So, what else is new?
FWIW, I usually try not to do a BOTM for something quite so new, but I figured that MMCS is starting to pop up at a few places, and some members have been able to purchase it either at the MM gift shop, or in a few store. That being said, I thought I'd go ahead and give it a whirl.
Below are my notes from the MMCS thread.
I think it's pretty darned good. There's a sweetness on entry, but not overly so. It's something akin to cotton candy or candy corn. At mid palate it warms up nicely with some caramel and vanilla showing itself. The overall mouthfeel is fairly rich and surprisingly viscous. The finish is nice and long with the warmness continuing. Good stuff IMHO.
I am fully aware that there is some conjectire about availability and pricing. The BOTM forum isn't the place to debate pricing, and/or whether or not some places may be price gouging, etc…. This thread is basically for tasting notes. How do you like it? I hate to beat a dead horse, but any posts even remotely belittling Maker's Mark, distributors and/or stores that may be taking advantage of things will be deleted. Please don't voice your frustrations here. That being said….
What do y'all think about Maker's Mark Cask Strength?
Cheers, and happy posting! Joe
