Maker's Mark Bourbon 46 New Expression

Maker's Mark Bourbon 46 New Expression 750ML      
Sku: 17273

Based on the original recipe for Maker's Mark, Maker's 46 is a new version of an old favorite. To create this interesting spirit, fully matured Maker's Mark is removed from its barrel, so that ten wooden seared staves can be affixed to the inner paneling. Searing the staves caramelizes the sugars in the wood, adding a unique flavor that finishes on the front of the tongue. The fully matured Maker's Mark is then put back in the barrel and aged several more months until it is approved by Master Distiller Kevin Smith

We 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.

 Ultimate Beverage Challenge 94 points (Mar 2015)
(Great Value)- Honey orange color. Acute peppery, cooking spice aromas burst from the glass in waves of sage, thyme, honey wheat, then with further air contact the nose settles in offering slightly torched/burnt cereal grain, baked fruit scents that carry forward into the maple-like, roasted midpalate. Aftertaste is medium long, honeyed. Classy, substantial.

Technical notes
On the nose, Maker's 46 displays pleasant, sweet, and toasty aromas with caramel overtones. The palate is rich and creamy with seared oak flavors that lead to lingering notes of caramel, vanilla, and spice on the powerful finish.
