The whiskey inside every bottle of Maker's Mark Private Select is created using a custom recipe of oak staves unique to each barrel. Each stave imparts a distinct flavor profile, which in combination, produces a whiskey that is truly one of a kind, every time. This particular barrel was finished in the following oak staves:
- 1 Part Baked American Pure 2 Oak Staves
- 1 Part Seared French Cuvee Oak Staves
- 5 Part Roasted French Mocha Oak Staves
- 3 Part Toasted French Spice Oak Staves
This unique blend creates a flavor profile that blasts creamy vanilla notes, with low underlying spices that become more vibrant with every sip. With the perfect touch of American oak, and an excellent barrel of bourbon this whiskey becomes an exceptionally delicious whiskey.
