Alright, it's bourbon time! Marker's Mark Red Wax is another classic bottling with a good portion of wheat in its mash bill. As expected, the nose is soft and intensely sweet with vanilla, fudge and a touch of sawdust. Simple but actually 'pleasant'. On the palate, the youthfulness of the spirit becomes more obvious. Corn syrup, honey and mild pepper are followed by alcohol and dry wood spices. Hints of popcorn and bitter almonds characterize the short and uneventful finish. An easy Kentucky Straight Bourbon which doesn't kill you if tried neat.

Nosing: Vanilla Honey Oak

Taste: Vanilla Oak Spices Oil

Finish: Vanilla Oak Oil Sweet

Comment:
A staple for many (though, sadly, not for myself). This comes off as a scent of Honey with Vanilla with Oak enriched fumes, but once Taste begins, the Honey vanishes and turns more to an Oil spread across the balance, leaving the Oak and Vanilla to become slightly muddled with Spices. Finish is not too bad, but the Oak and Oil come out slightly stronger. A polite gift for a Layman, a Simple Bourbon for Lovers.
