Maker's Mark 46 Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml) (Previously $35)

SKU #1059423 93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Finished in the barrel with specially seared oak staves, this bourbon is a new classic. In the glass, it sports a bright maple color, and lively, spicy aromas and flavors of oaky vanilla and tropical fruit touched with clove, ginger and allspice. (KN) Inner quote mark (7/2013)

90 points Whisky Advocate

Outer quote mark This is original 'red wax' Maker's Mark that received additional aging in barrels containing internal 'seared' French oak staves. The original Maker's Mark, being a wheated bourbon (instead of rye, which is typically used), is rather mellow and easy-to-drink. The French oak staves in '46' add firm, complex dry spices (led by warming cinnamon, followed by nutmeg and clove), herb (a suggestion of Green Chartreuse, perhaps?), and some polished leather 'grip', which dovetails well with Maker's trademark layered sweetness (caramel, vanilla, a hint of honey). I'm also picking up some dried fruit in the background. The seared oak stave influence is somewhat aggressive, but never to the point of being excessive. (JH, Fall 2010) Inner quote mark

K&L Notes

Maker's 46 is the first new product from Maker's Mark since their first bottling in 1958. 92 points Beverage Testing Institute: "Dark amber color. Aromas of nut brittle, milk chocolate, and leather with a chewy, crisp, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a peppery, amusing, medium-long cinnamon mole, puffed farro, pistachio, ponzu, mint tea, and caramel finish. A big and chewy bourbon that will be a great meal pairing. *Gold Medal, Exceptional*" (10/2018)
