Spring is here and we can’t think of better way to celebrate warmer temperatures than a fantastic glass of bourbon! This week on our blog we are featuring two new must-have bourbons to the Palyess Liquors collection: Maker’s Mark Cask Strength and Jim Beam Distiller’s Masterpiece.
Maker’s Mark Cask Strength
Maker’s just got stronger. The new Cask Strength variation is bottle straight from the barrel at 108 to 114 proof. They’ve upped the ante with this release by increasing the oak, caramel, vanilla and spice. Tasting notes include the sweet caramel foundation with notes of warm cinnamon and subtle oak spice. The complex, yet balanced flavors all come together for a sweet, wine-like finish with lingering heat and spice.
The Spirit Journal even said it’s, “Simply the best Maker’s Mark ever.” This is the first time Maker’s Mark has offered their product in cask strength. It’s unaltered, uncut and unparalleled to any other cask strength bourbon.
Jim Beam Distiller’s Masterpiece
This limited edition release is one for the books. Distiller’s Masterpiece is a strong 100-proof and extra-aged in the optimal rack-house position, as determined by Master Distiller, Fred Noe. The next step in the aging process is a final finish in PX-Sherry casks for a unique flavor. This Masterpiece is characterized by rich and smooth flavors of orange, vanilla, cinnamon and all spice, with hints of toasted wood. There are also bold notes of dark fruits including plums, cherries and raspberries. Sweet and silky on the finish.
This Jim Beam Distiller’s Masterpiece certainly isn’t the first of its kind. Jim Beam has released previous bottles including those finished in cognac and port cask. The collection is made up of two Sherry cask variations. The Distiller’s Masterpiece comes packaged in a luxury wooden case, which makes it all the more special.
