Makers Mark Wood Finishing Series 2021 Limited Release FAE-02

 93.99

The Maker’s Mark® Wood Finishing Series returns with our anticipated Fall edition. Following up on spring’s FAE-01, this fourth limited release from the series is here after a full year of wood experimentation. The result is a rich, wonderfully oaky bourbon. FAE-02 honors our signature whisky with a focus on mouthfeel and big, round woody notes. There’s enough spice to give it body and balance but the luscious texture is what really stands out. Bottles of this rare bourbon will number in the precious few, so be on the lookout – or press your local shop about availability.

Our 2021 expressions took a leap forward with a full year of stave research. FAE-02 staves are French Oak that’s double heat-treated – with infrared, then a flame finish. The infrared creates furans (or caramel flavor). The flame finish balances the caramel with lignin (vanilla.) For FAE-01, we seared one side of the stave – leaving one side raw – extracting different flavors from each side of the wood.
