The first bourbon in the wood-finishing series, Maker’s 46® was created by Bill Samuels, Jr., to amplify the flavors he loves in Maker’s Mark®. The innovative wood-stave-finishing process starts with fully matured Maker’s Mark® at cask strength. 10 seared virgin French oak staves are then inserted into the barrel and finish it for nine weeks in the limestone cellar. The result is Maker’s 46: bolder and more complex, but without the bitterness typical of longer-aged whiskies.
Hints of wood staves, caramel and sweetness
Very intense flavors; a big crescendo of wood blending perfectly with deep, complex and rich notes of vanilla and caramel
Smooth and subtle
