The folks at the Maker's Mark Distillery have been handcrafting one thing, one way, since 1958. But, the fact is, innovation has been part of their heritage since Bill Samuels, Sr., first experimented with soft red winter wheat to create Maker's Mark® all those years ago.

Fully matured Maker's Mark is removed from its barrel. Top hoops are removed from the barrel, and the barrel head is pulled.

Ten wooden seared staves are then affixed to the inside of that barrel.

Searing the staves caramelizes the sugars in the wood, adding a unique flavor that finishes on the front of the tongue.

The fully matured Maker's Mark is then put back in the barrel and aged several more months. When it tastes exactly right, Maker's 46 is removed from the barrel, bottled, corked and dipped.

Review
We age Maker's 46 a bit longer inside barrels containing seared French oak staves. The staves create bolder, more complex flavors — while eliminating the bitterness that usually comes with whiskies that are aged longer.

Wine maker notes
Aged - To maturity

Proof - 94

Aroma - Pleasant, sweet, toasty oak nose with caramel overtones. More intense aroma without an alcohol nose.

Taste - Rich, creamy seared-oak flavors; caramel and vanilla notes linger on the front of the palate, but it is still soft enough to hold on the tongue even at 94 proof.

Finish - A big mouth-watering oaky finish. Long with a little spice, staying forward on the palate without the bitter bite found in older whiskies.
