A limited edition maker’s Mark Bourbon with more wood and more flavor power.

The original “Burk’s Distillery” was built in 1885 just outside of Loretto, Kentucky. T. William “Bill” Samuels bought the operation in 1953 for $35,000. Samuels wanted to make quality, so he used the sales of the existing stockpiles to finance a revamp. The first bottle of the new flagship brand “Makers Mark” was bottled in 1958 and dipped into the red sealing wax that has become the company’s trademark — making them one of the first to carve out a space in what we now call the “premium Bourbon” market. Currently owned by Beam-Suntory, members of the Samuels family still work at the company.

There are a LOT of Maker’s Mark Bourbon fans out there who have been waiting… no, they’ve been salivating over the release of Maker’s Mark Woof Finishing Series RC6. It came out in September of 2019 and it is a winner.

Maker’s Mark Wood Finishing Series RC6 starts as the core maker’s Mark Straight Bourbon Spirit aged the normal way. The barrels are first emptied and opened up. Then ten special insert staves are placed inside the casks. Maker’s Marked worked hand-in-hand with the Independent Stave Company to create these special barrel inserts — staves that have been air-seasoned for eighteen months and then toasted. The experimental staves are version RC6, giving the Bourbon its name. The barrels are then refitted and filled back up for finishing. This limited edition Straight Bourbon is comprised of just 255 barrels at 54.1% ABV. Demand is high, so get yours while you can!

Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.

The finish is long, sweet, and a bit dry with a leather and tobacco note.
Ratings & Reviews
This tastes no different than a regular makers. It's obv stronger/harsher due to the higher proof but the flavor profile is exactly the same. I only rated it high because makers is delicious.
Color is reddish copper. Nose starts with vanilla and baking spices, but with bright fruit popping through underneath: sweet red apple, as well as separate citrus notes, and just a hint of cherry. First sip is classic maker's cask strength baking spice and vanilla, but with a zing on the tongue, making it almost feel carbonated. Further sips show the sweet red apple as well as the citrus notes. Mouthfeel is not too thin or viscous. Finish is a transition to more baking spices, as well as a little caramel, with the spice lingering and drying the tongue slightly, secondary to the proof. Overall, slightly better than regular Maker's Cask Strength due to the extra fruity influence.
