Maker’s 46 is the first new product EVER from Maker’s Mark. Without creating a new recipe nor changing the Maker’s Mark our fans know and love, our master distiller has found a unique way through the stave process to use fully matured Maker’s Mark to
create a new and flavorful expression.
Maker's 46 is created by removing fully matured Maker's Mark Bourbon from its barrel, affixing ten seared oak staves to the inside of the original barrel, then putting the Marker's Nark back in and aging it several more months, 46 is the project number assigned by the barrel make to the process used to sear the oak staves. Makers Mark is the first distillery to use this process.
Age: To Maturity
Proof: 94
Aroma: Pleasant sweet, toasty oak nose, with caramel overtones. More intense aroma without a alcohol nose.
Taste: rich, creamy seared oak flavors; caramel and vanilla notes linger on the front of the palate, but it is still soft enough to hold on the tongue even at 94 proof.
Finish: A big, mouth watering oaky finish. Long with a little spice, staying forward on the palate without the bitter bite found in older whiskeys.
