This one changes the way we think of bourbon, all because one man changed the way of making it. Never bitter or sharp. Maker’s Mark® is made with soft red winter wheat, instead of the usual rye. To ensure consistency, we rotate every barrel by hand and age our bourbon to taste, not time.
Nose: Fruity and rich. There are lovely notes of spiced honey and mixed peels, a little malmsey, hazelnut and a touch of cut fruit with toasty oak providing a backbone.
Taste: Rich and full. There are notes of rye and spice, barley malt, a little nut oil with butterscotch and vanilla..
Finish: Quite sweet with butterscotch and dry oak spice.
