General description

I had an idea this might be a gimmick but it is really good. I like the regular Maker's but it is not what I would call a favorite. This however, has potential. The good notes are strong and well represented. It has lots of wood and vanilla with just light smoke. It didn't seem as Floral as regular makers but still nicely balanced. IMO, 46 is worth the extra $ over the standard offering.

Nice surprise, familiar bourbon notes with a buttery cinnamon notes at the end. Reminesence of French toast or warm buttered cinnamon bread. Very drinkable as it pours. Looj forward to finding a call strength bottle. Great value for the price!

A mild bourbon with a sweet vanilla and oak taste, best served on the rocks and sipped. The flavors really open up with the ice melting.

One of the better middle shelfers. More of a burn than I desire. Aroma of wood and caramel. Good flavors followed by a dominating burn.

Nose is sweet toasted oak and vanilla. Strong sweetness forward, oily and creamy on the tongue. It has that liquid butter toffee aspect to it, but not as strong as the Seared Bu. Finish is medium in length with dominant oak notes

Amped up Maker's; a little more depth and smoothness. Extra aging helps to bring out more oak.

Sweetness with wheat and vanilla.

Palate

Carmel and vanilla with an undefined desert sweetness.

A long finish with a nice fade.

Not a Bourbon fan and 46 didn't change my mind. Good Bourbon smell but needs ice to mellow out. Too pricey for a mixer.

General description

The aroma is not as forceful as regular Maker's, but equally as defining with it's evenness. The time spent with French Oak staves definitely develops this spirit all around. It brings more Caramel and Cinnamon on the nose and Vanilla and Oak on the toungue. Taste feels like it is finished and then lightly continues on. Brief burn on the lips with the initial sip and in the medium finish. Candied Maker's. Yum. The balanced mixture of flavors attained by good blended whiskeys.... without blending whiskeys.
