Description

History

Maker’s Mark purposely distills its bourbon at a lower ABV (45%) than classic American bourbon, this way, according to the distillery, the whiskey retains its flavor better and doesn’t use rye to reduce the sense of ” tartness” on the palate. The production and foundation began in 1954, following the purchase by T. William Samuels of the “Burks Distillery” distillery; he will therefore decide to produce an “easier” and more pleasant whiskey.

Production method

The disciplinary that regulates the production of Bourbon is, all in all, a very precise and strict disciplinary; in fact, to use the word Bourbon on a bottle of whiskey, surely one of the most important indications is that the distilled and used raw material must be at least 51% corn. It is also stipulated that the whiskey must be produced in America, aged in charred American oak barrels, and cannot be bottled at an alcohol content greater than 40°.

Alcohol content

45%

Tasting notes

Dark amber colour. Fruity nose balanced by notes of honey and toasted oak. On the palate the distillate is robust with hints of spice, nut oil, butter and vanilla.

Usage

Perfect at the end of a meal or as a meditation; particularly recommended for lovers of soft, vanilla whiskeys but still with a good structure.
