|Maker's Mark Whisky|
The nose gives off a very generic aroma of vanilla, caramel, and oak. It is light and soft and really uninteresting. On the tongue you get a hay and grassy harshness. There is very little sweetness but some warming heat and a touch of spice. It is no wonder that I've always liked Maker's and Coke when I have to drink whiskey in that fashion. With very little inherent sweetness, it doesn't make the drink extra syrup with the addition of soda. Over the whisky (yes, they use the Scotch spelling) has one big note. It is a dry, simple tailgating kind of bourbon with a pretty decent price point. Enjoy it in mixed drinks, otherwise don't bother.
