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.

The temperatures of American warehouses are much higher, so the pace of maturation is much quicker for Bourbons than for Scotch Whiskies

All the flavor with a little more punch

George,
This stuff if awesome for those that are getting into sipping cask strengths. This brings a whole new level of flavor and complexity that I never knew before in Maker's Mark. This led me to buy a bottle of Maker's Special Reserve and believe me... it is a work of art.

Liquid gold. Zesty brown sugar with hints of orange. It nicely coats the mouth, with both sweet and oak finish. This is just layers upon layers of magnificence. Will definitely be getting this again...and again...and again. It's absolute brilliance in a glass.

Camille,
Love the sweetness!
 
Anthony
Anthony,
I generally drink this one on ice with a few drops of water to open it up. It has such a deliciously oaky lingering aftertaste. It makes me think of the pleasent smell of a nice light spring rain while relaxing on an old wood patio.
 
David
David,
I drink the majority of my bourbons neat or on a cube of ice. Maker's is one of the best mixing bourbons on the market. It's also pretty darn good neat.

Strong whiskey with a smooth finish, good for sipping.
 
George
George,
Makers Mark has and will always be on my bar! Cask Strength is my personal favorite. Smooth, and just the right finish. Need any more be said?
 
Charles
Charles,
Extremely good bourbon, especially on the rocks (or should I say stones).
 
Bret
Bret,
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!
