Maker's Mark 46 French Oaked
Bourbon — Kentucky, USA

This surprised me because I think Maker's Mark is an easy drinker without much character and I was skeptical that the same whiskey with an extra few months of French oak staves would be worth $10 more. So I bought the 375 mL instead, and I can safely say this is clearly superior to the original version. You can get some higher proofs and single barrels around this price, but I haven't had many as flavorful as the Maker's 46. The nose is fantastic, slightly better than the taste. I can definitely taste the additional oak, which leaves a long pleasant aftertaste compared to the original version. I'm so happy they have a 375 for this btw, so you can try that for half the price if you're unsure you'll like it.
