Maker’s Mark Private Select line is a variation of Maker’s Mark Cask Strength. Whereas Maker’s 46 Cask Strength is created by using 10 Maker’s 46 finishing staves, Private Select creates unique flavor combinations by utilizing over 1,000 possible stave combinations. Private Select is created by adding 10 custom finishing staves to each barrel and finishing them in a limestone cellar to extract more flavor. The fully matured cask-strength whiskey is further aged for 9 more weeks. These 10 finishing staves can be any combination of five different flavor profiles in the program. These include Baked American Pure 2, Seared French Cuvee, Maker’s 46, Roasted French Mocha, and Toasted French Spice.
Extremely approachable even though it is at over 110 proof. Toffee, rich vanilla, toasted oak, and a dash of coffee off the nose. An initial burst of sweet vanilla, corn, and light dried raisins is slowly replaced with slight black pepper, wheat, and oak tones. Brown sugar, vanilla, and toffee round out a super soft finish that leaves you wanting another sip.
