We were in Brooklyn visiting relatives for the holidays and decided not to bring any vials with us from my Christmas present from Susan, the 2022 Flaviar Advent Calendar, “The Depths of Whiskey,” so we have some catching up to do. Having vial #9 to start off the New Year.
We cracked open the Maker’s Mark Wood Finishing Series 2022 BRT - 02, after having a pour of the BRT - 01 (which we both loved ) last night. The 02 is a completely different experience. Deeper, darker, and more rich fruit notes dominate this one, with baking spices and a dark chocolate note on the finish. I’m leaning more toward the 02 being my favorite, but both are outstanding bottles that will be sure to please bourbon fans.
