Maker’s Mark

Maker’s Mark 46

(Wheated) Bourbon (46%)

Nose: Complex with toasted hazelnuts, maple syrup, honey and nutmeg as well as a hint of espresso.

Palate: Thick and sweet with plenty of cinnamon. Spicy oak, cereal notes and caramel.

Finish: Long, sweet and spiced whilst retaining a lightness.

Overall: To introduce a new product after 52 years could be seen as a pretty serious risk. They need not have worried, ‘46’ is recognisably Maker’s whilst having its own complex, spicy character that sets it apart – bravo!
