Gorgeous cask strength bourbon from powerhouse Maker’s Mark 🥃 The perfect structural support for this beautiful Banana Boulevardier 💥 The recipe (below) was concocted by the mixology gurus at Houston’s very own Anvil Bar + Refuge.
- 1 oz bourbon
- 1 oz sweet vermouth
- 1/2 oz Campari
- 1/2 oz banana liqueur — a year ago
Batch 3, Bottle 1181. One cube. Copper hues, cedar and spice aromas give way to corn syrup, maple stick and burnt cinnamon flavors. Medium length, smooth long finish with minimal bite. Performed far beyond expectations. I didn't sense any taste contribution from the fact that this was finished for 9 months in Groth Cab reserve oak barrels. Still, a damn good bourbon. — 5 years ago
