Top reviews for Maker's Mark Wood Finishing Series RC6:

— Phenomenal bottle, one of the smoothest high(ish) proof bourbons I’ve had before

— Yes, This has the same flavor profile as every other Makers Mark offering, but this is on a completely different level than regular makers. The sweet vanilla is much more abundant than the others. This is like a sweet cherry pie, the high proof and extra oak really takes that sweetness and gives it a bourbon kick. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

— 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.

Great cigar bourbon. Has a sweetness that cuts the bitter leathery flavors.

Matthew,
I love this stuff. Spicy and hot, but add a little water and the layers of complexity unfold themselves.

Elliot,
I found it less enjoyable than Makers Mark. A strong burn with a damp wood taste.

Will,
My favorite decent/cheap priced bourbon. Great bang for your buck. Smooth and sweet and bourbon-y.
 
Ivan
Ivan,
My favorite Makers. It's sweet and woody with very minimal spice. Compared to the regular cask strength, 46 cask strength and a few other private releases, the flavor of RC6 is the best.

Gary,
Well, I like it. Another reviewer said that it taste like regular makers, and I agree. The spicy an apple notes enhance the usual vanilla flavors that come naturally to Maker's. If money is an object, I’m not sure it’s worth the extra cost. But it is nice to try at least one bottle, if you can find it. If the prices were all equal, I would stock 46, then regular Maker's, then an occasional bottle of cask strength. That would be a really nice lineup of wheated Bourbons.

Just get yourself a bottle if you are lucky enough to find one as it is limited. Heated but smooth and fruity delicious like only Maker’s or Four Roses can accomplish. A little bit of water brings out more flavor. A must have for sure.

Mitch,
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.
