I know that Maker's Mark has been the BOTM before, but its been a few years. Considering the recent news about the expansion at MM, I thought it would be a good time to revisit it as BOTM. We've also had many new members join since 2006. I'm also running out of ideas for BOTM, and can, and will use any excuse I can to come up with one. But seriously….
As I stated in the "What Are You Drinking" thread, I had a pour of MM last night. It's amazing how often I forget about MM until someone mentions it, or some news come out about it. I think that at least a few other folks here might experience the same thing. I don't often have a pour of Maker's at home, but I will have one sometimes when I'm out. A lot of places seem to only have what I call "the usual suspects". Those are, MM, Beam, WR, and/or maybe a couple of others. If that's the case, I'll almost always pick MM.
FWIW, I do like MM. It was my gateway bourbon, and I'll always have at least one bottle in my cabinet.
That's about it from me. I won't bother with any tasting notes. Have fun, happy posting, and let's hear what y'all have to say about the "Red Head".
