Maker’s Mark is regarded by many as being the first Kentucky Straight Bourbon to market itself as a ‘premium’ brand. It is also noted for its high corn content and being blended in batches of 150 casks which fill around 3,000 cases.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 09/04/2015


Clear, golden amber with a coppery orange tint.


Well matured fruitcake with honey, vanilla, overripe banana, nuts and dried topical fruit.


Soft palate of corn on the cob served on buttered lightly burnt toast with maple syrup, vanilla, bitter chocolate, espresso and spicy oak (nutmeg).


Long, nutty, dry, vanilla oak, butterscotch, bitter chocolate and espresso.


An approachable, satisfying and easy-drinking bourbon.
