The first line extension to the Maker's Mark range since the '50s, Maker's 46 is essentially the standard expression with added spice. This was not intended to compete with the core expression, instead it's a cousin to it, something different for those that like spicy bourbon. They add this extra dimension by inserted seared French oak staves into the barrels (with the stave profile "number 46" - thus the name). It's utterly stunning.

Cheap, good toffee bourbon
 
Nick
Nick,
The 46 brings a floral nose with vanilla and toffee and hints of caramel. If I wasn't so eager for a taste, I could sit and smell this all day, and the longer I do the more pronounced the charred oak. There is not much of a mouth coat, but the feeling is oily and smooth. A sweet sip that's nice to savor with a bit of spice on the way down. The finish is quick which means another sweet sip comes just as quick.

initial syrup sweetness with notes of carmel and cherry. quickly transitioning into a slightly thin and dry finish with notes of oak, cinnamon, and pepper.

Love the spicy side of this bourbon. One of my favorites
 
George
George,
Great upgrade to my all time classic love, Maker's Mark. Has nice additional complexity and flavor. For a real treat get your hands on some Maker's Special Reserve.
 
Shannon
Shannon,
My favorite “go to” bourbon.
 
Isaac
Isaac,
Mellow smooth unassuming bourbon. Fair for sipping or making an outstanding old fashion or Sazerac.

arne,
there is something about I just can’t get over it. great for mixing but straight up it’s just a little offensive.
 
Benjamin
Benjamin,
Very nice. Much richer flavor than standard Maker's

This might be my new favorite to sip. Just the right amount of burn and sweetness. Smells great. I’m a big fan.
 
Tristen

Great, hint of oak but not harsh
 
James
James,
Smooth carmel, ash taste!
 
Jernique
Jernique,
Always live this one. Back in another bottle. Citrusy, oaky and sweet. I love it straight and also in a Manhattan. Taste a little spicey with caramel and honey at the end. I like the linger, it has a great finish.
 
Chris
Chris,
Not a bad lower priced bourbon. I like it for simple vacations or heading out in my travel trailer.
 
Brandon
Brandon,
Great taste and very smooth. Good straight or on ice.

Very nice

Not as smooth as I'd hoped for. I've had cheaper bourbon that tasted better (see Benchmark Bourbon).

A step up from your average everyday whiskey
 
guest

Makers can’t go wrong
 
Edward
Edward,
I always drink whiskey with ice, so for me the caramel and leather with hints of oak and tobacco were great with this after it sat a few minutes. Buttery on the scent with some vanilla hints. Overall great bottle.
 
Mark
Mark,
My favorite
 
Blake
Blake,
Price is going down and I love the flavor of this wheated bourbon. The finish is great. One of my g0-tos.
 
Bianca
Bianca,
It’s overrated
 
Chris
Chris,
Pounces on your taste buds and doesn't let go.
 
Gabriel
Gabriel,
Are we sure this isn't rye?? I'm joking of course, but damn is this spicy like a solid rye - much more bite than the original Maker's Mark, but not in a bad way - it's damn smooth as well (and more so than the original in my opinion). I love that spice on the tongue and warm bourbon vanilla finish left lingering on the lips and in the cheeks. A great party drink for lovers of neat Bourbon & Rye alike - I'll even throw it in a stronger Old Fashioned with a bit of muddled orange zest for my dearest friends to experience that Seville Orange spice blend up front. Makes for a long sipping and greatly enjoyed experience.

Jacqueline
Jacqueline,
My go-to, favorite bourbon. Slightly sweet, light oak, and pairs well with orange, all of which, makes it perfect for a bourbon and coca cola (real sugar) or an old fashioned.

Very smooth and easy to drink. Not very complex but good daily drinker

Very smooth with dark color. Notes of caramel and molasses. Rich flavor.

Good I suppose compared to many - but I was disappointed it was harsh compared to my favorite (Stranahan's Diamond Peak).
 
Jacob

I love 46, the nice Carmel and vanilla notes really make this one a nice sipper.

One of my all time favorite bourbons easily! Everything I like in a bourbon. Carmel, charcoal, wood sugars, corn spirit, and quiet a nice aroma.
