Maker's Mark Kentucky Straight Bourbon
Christopher,
This is a great "go to" bourbon for me. It goes down very easy neat or with 1 small or 1/2 small ice cube. S: sugary, caramel; T: I get caramel dessert with a hint of spice notes (but mainly sweet); F: very smooth finish, no burn, still drinking sweet with a slight spiciness (I can't say cinnamon per se). All around a great choice to keep in the bar. It is always stocked in my crystal decanter. I never tell people what it is until after they drink it. I like sweet. This is dessert for me!
Maker's Mark Cask Strength Bourbon
Scott,
Smooth with just enough bite to remind you that you're drinking whiskey. Excellent on its own but also good as a whiskey-prominent mixed drink, such as an old fashioned or Manhattan.
Maker's Mark 46
James,
Not my thing. Way too floral for my taste.

James,
Always enjoyable sipping after meals, with friends or a cigar. Not too sharp but carries through enough smokiness to remain a bourbon.

It was the star ingredient of the most perfect Mint Juleps ever made this past weekend !!

Nicholas,
Some bourbons emphasize their heritage by keeping things straight, harsh and powerful; this one is sweeter and it's a good thing. Per dollar, this might be the best liquor in the world.

Maker's Mark Wood Finishing Series RC6
guest,
Yes, This has the same flavor profile as every other Makers Mark offering, but this is on a completely different level than regular makers. The sweet vanilla is much more abundant than the others. This is like a sweet cherry pie, the high proof and extra oak really takes that sweetness and gives it a bourbon kick. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Andrew,
Hits the mark every time not extra special but very consistent. Keep a bottle handy
Maker's Mark Kentucky Straight Bourbon
James,
Call me crazy, but a neat pour of this is an assault on my nose. It's more burn and ethanol blast than notes and flavor. If a low proof feeling hotter than necessary is your niche, then you've found your bottle... I'd rather have a proof appropriate burn. This one feels like something with 20% higher ABV without including the flavors to match. It's not ”bad” flavors... They're just missing in the ethanol white noise... Great choice for bartenders who go easy on the whiskey but want to fool people into thinking the mix is alcohol heavy. The smell and bite stay strong through ice or coke so there's that I guess.

It has a very nice taste of oak, but it does lack some refinement.

I found it less enjoyable than Makers Mark. A strong burn with a damp wood taste.

Great bourbon, honestly stays in the freezer for a nice cooling effect.
Maker's Mark Kentucky Straight Bourbon
Casey,
Very smooth. Always our go to if we don’t have Weller. Best accessible wheat vs. rye bourbon out there. The tradition, consistency and class of Makers also makes it our favorite visit on the tours.

Always a great staple. Love the consistency. May not be the deepest or richest in complexity, but always consistent quality bourbon. A must have for every home bar

Don't like the flavor at all.
Maker's Mark Cask Strength Bourbon
Christopher,
I have a bottle on hand at all times. Generally, 113 proof would just tear me apart. This is surprisingly smooth straight or on the rocks. Still a little sweet, though.

An OK boubon. kinda flat or bland in flavor, that didn't really last. It just left me wishing there were more to it.

One of my go-to bourbons. I like wheated bourbons.
Maker's Mark Kentucky Straight Bourbon
Stefan,
On the nose the charred oak barrel is very present along with the percentige. After this a frutiy note comes to mind, a fruity note that reminds of buffalo trace. The pallet is however the reverce but some sherry is there for a short time. A good bourbon. Aesthetic bonus is that the top of the bottle diped in red wax which give it a intressting look.
