Maker's Mark’s signature wheated Bourbon delivered at a powerfully pleasant 50.5% ABV for a limited time.
The original "Burk’s Distillery" was built in 1885 just outside of Loretto, Kentucky. T. William "Bill" Samuels bought the operation in 1953 for $35,000. Samuels wanted to make quality, so he used the sales of the existing stockpiles to finance a revamp. The first bottle of the new flagship brand "Makers Mark" was bottled in 1958 and dipped into the red sealing wax that has become the company’s trademark
Nose / Aroma / Smell : The aroma is deep and sweet with oak spices and a bread pudding note.
Flavor / Taste / Palate : Taken neat, the mouth-feel is rich and creamy with a velvet spice, dark caramel, apple, and marmalade.
Finish : The finish is really satisfying and approachable with a lingering toffee truffle note.
Bottle Size: 750mL
