Makers Mark cask strength.

Can't believe I haven't had this one yet. So much more interesting than standard Makers. 111 proof, so not a momster. Maple syrup nose. Honey, vanilla, and syrup fading to cinnamon and allspice. The cinnamon lingers in a long finish. Viscous and syrupy. Super smooth for the proof.

I've gotta pair this up with a cigar. The syrup and cinnamon is powerful, buy smooth. This one needs a big, bold smoke to compliment.

I haven't gone through all 30pgs of this thread, so forgive me if this has been discussed:

 

I love, love Laphroaig 10yr. I drink it need, and I find the flavor profile so delightful. I taste a rich vanilla-y thing going on, with that lovely smoky-ness

 

 

I tried Ardbeg 10yr a few months ago. I couldn't get into it. All I got was the smoky-ness, but didn't get any other flavors.

 

Is this a case where actually adding a dash of water might actually open it up more? I haven't tried that in a really, really long time, but I preferred it neat with the Scotch I tried it with.
