Maker's 46 Bourbon 750ml

Aromas are pleasant, sweet, toasty oak nose with caramel overtones. More intense aroma without an alcohol nose. On the palate 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. The finish is a big mouth-watering oaky finish. Long with a little spice, staying forward on the palate without the bitter bite found in older Whiskies.

WHISKEY ADVOCATE RATING: 90

WHISKEY ADVOCATE REVIEW: 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.

WINE ENTHUSIAST RATING: 94

WINE ENTHUSIAST REVIEW: The nose finds supersweet deep caramel candy and almond extract, but don’t be fooled. On the tongue, it’s punch-in-the-nose dry and biting. Best served on ice, which takes down the burn and lets the pronounced woody flavors come through: lots of oak, strong tea and cigar tobacco.
