IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS

On the nose, the classic Maker's Mark sweetness peaks through a veil of spice. Cinnamon, clove, and allspice appear before making way for the classic Maker's signature vanilla and caramel notes to arrive. There is more wood on the nose than red wax Maker's, but it is in balanced and very pleasing. Wonderful spice notes hit the palate first, before creme brulee and fresh warm caramels make an appearance. On the finish, Maker's 46 presents a longer finish than red wax Maker'sWe age Maker's 46 a bit longer inside barrels containing seared French oak staves. The staves create bolder, more complex flavors — while eliminating the bitterness that usually comes with whiskies that are aged longer.
Maker’s Mark is produced at Loretto in Kentucky, where distilling has been taking place on the Star Hill Farm site since to 1805. The present brand was developed by Bill Samuels Snr, who bought Star Hill in 1953, and the Scottish spelling of ‘whisky’ has been employed since the outset in recognition of Samuels’ Scottish ancestry. Since 2005 maker’s Mark has been owned by Fortune Brands, who are also responsible for Jim Beam. Samuels chose to create a Bourbon using a proportion of red winter wheat instead of the more common rye, in order to reduce the ‘burn’ left by many Bourbons of the time. The result is a comparatively soft and gentle spirit, which becomes very mellow as it matures. A subtle, complex, clean nose, with vanilla and spice, a delicate floral note of roses, plus lime and cocoa beans.
