Maker’s Mark – Kentucky Straight
Bourbon, Bourbon, who likes their Bourbon? Make mine a Maker’s Mark, Kentucky Straight and I’ll be a happy man.
Yes ladies and gentlemen, this week I am going to put you onto one of my favourite drinks, and if you are a whiskey drinker and you have not tried Maker’s Mark, it soon will become one of your favourites too. Trust me it’s good, real good.

Maker’s Mark is a medium body whiskey, so it’s not too heavy. It smells great, of vanilla and spice with a hint of lime. When you get into it, flavours of fruit, spice and ginger are all present. The flavours linger for a while with a hint of smoke coming through on the finish.
Yes people, this is a must, and if you have a nice wooden porch to sit out on, a rocking chair and some toe-tapping music as well, all the better! You should be able to pick up a bottle for around €46.
