Bourbon Review: Maker's Mark OHLQ Private Select- Honeysuckle

Maker's Mark - Straight Bourbon Whiskey - 112.7 proof

The 5 Maker's Mark private selections were released throughout Ohio in May of 2020.

"Whether it’s the creamy Milkshake; the toasty Toffee Almond; or Honeysuckle’s bright crispness; the rich, indulgent Caramel Mocha Bomb; or Grandma’s Kitchen and its warm hints of baking spices, each of these limited-release expressions offers its own take on the original – and unmistakable – Maker’s Mark® taste vision".

Somewhere in the video below is a bonus movie review of "Christopher Robin". Don't ask why, but spoiler alert, Ian hated it.

One of our favorite reviews we've done! We were both genuinely surprised at how much we enjoyed this. So much so that we started an autumn fantasy which got a little weird. Let us know if you got your hands on any of the MM Private Select expressions and what you thought of them! Per the usual, we look at 5 different categories in our own terms: Bottle, Appearance, Smell, Value, and Taste.
