Established in 1954, Maker's Mark is one of the nation's best selling small batch bourbons. While the majority of bourbons on the market are made with corn, rye, and malted barley, Maker's Mark is a 'wheated' bourbon, replacing rye in the mashbill with red winter wheat. It is bottled at 45% ABV.

Tasting Notes

"The nose is subtle with candy corn, spice and vanilla. Mouth feel is extremely creamy accentuating fresh fruits, vanilla, and brown sugar. Medium finish with 'second' tastes including baking spice, oak, and apple."
