It’s still your favorite premium Bourbon... Only cranked up to full volume. 

The original “Burk’s Distillery” was built in 1885 just outside of Loretto, Kentucky. T. William “Bill” Samuels bought the operation in 1953 for $35,000. Samuels wanted to make quality, so he used the sales of the existing stockpiles to finance a revamp. The first bottle of the new flagship brand “Makers Mark” was bottled in 1958 and dipped into the red sealing wax that has become the company’s trademark — making them one of the first to carve out a space in what we now call the “premium Bourbon” market. Currently owned by Beam-Suntory, members of the Samuels family still work at the company.

Maker’s Mark Bourbons are famous for being bottled to taste — which is why there is no age statement on the label. But the general consensus is that this premium Bourbon averages six years in the barrel. Maker's Mark Cask Strength is their same “no Rye” premium Bourbon. But where the core spirit is cut to 45% ABV, the cask strength jumps into the bottle — unfiltered and uncut — at a full 55.75% ABV. You are still listening to your favorite rock band, but instead of watching from the balcony, it’s like having a front row seat.

Ratings & Reviews
Extremely good bourbon, especially on the rocks (or should I say stones).
I am a fan of Makers Mark and Makers 46, so this was the next step. Very similar to the 46 except you can definitly taste the higher alcohol. Still smooth and nice, tasty with a spicy long finish, just a little more heat from the higher ABV!
