Brand: Makers Mark
Type: Bourbon/American whiskey
Strength: 47% alc/vol
The first bourbon in our wood-finishing series, Maker’s Mark 46Â®Â was created by Bill Samuels, Jr., to amplify the flavors he loves in Maker’s MarkÂ®. The innovative wood-stave-finishing process starts with fully matured Maker’s MarkÂ®Â at cask strength. We then insert 10 seared virgin French oak staves into the barrel and finish it for nine weeks in our limestone cellar. The result is Maker’s Mark 46: bolder and more complex, but without the bitterness typical of longer-aged whiskies.
Nose: Toffee sweetness and freshly cut wood. Toasty aroma, with sweet spices and deep, thick caramel.
Palate: Creamy and very soft. Exploding with spiciness; nutmeg, mulled wine spices, allspice, cinnamon.
Finish: Sweeter spices & grassy after a minute or so.
