This limited-edition commemorative bottle from Maker's Mark was released in May 2016 and is dedicated to American Pharoah, the first thoroughbred to win the Triple Crown in 37 years. The blue and yellow bottle design was inspired by the silks of Zayat Stables, with the brand's signature red wax seal replaced with teal blue wax. Maker's Mark is a "wheated" bourbon, made from a mash bill of mostly corn, followed by red winter wheat, and malted barley. It's 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."
