my go to daily bourbon
|Whisky||Maker’s Mark 46|
my go to daily bourbon
The spicy nature of the whiskey really surprised me. Tasted like a rye. Outstanding.
less sweet vanilla and more of a slight burn going down than Makes Mark original.
Vanilla, oak, some alcohol heat. Quite nice.
the standard makers mark has a better finish, although still a nice whisky
pretty spicy for my taste
A step up from Makers with a decent vanilla and oak flavor with a smoother body and more palatable finish.
Staple in my home. Not overpowering, but full of caramel and vanilla flavor. My go to for introducing folks to bourbon.
VERY gentle. it's got caramel and vanilla with a little oak, and a big dose of maraschino cherries. ends a little bitter, but just a very friendly bourbon
Very good. Nice and smooth with a bit of heat. Nice vanilla undertone.
Smooth. A bit of brown sugar and vanilla.
Solid. Like bourbon.
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.
Very good bourbon. An every day sipper.
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.
Great bourbon for the price. Not the most smooth but pretty easy to put down. Good oak barrel taste and some slight hints of caramel. I always have a bottle of Makers 46 on hand!
mild taste and little vanilla fragrance.
it's a bourbon that tastes like bourbon. there are a few nuances but nothing out of the ordinary. this is a good bourbon, but it can become a little boring
I got a little fire and smoke and maybe a hint of leather...not what I expected...was smooth too..
nose: oak, cinnamon, caramel, maybe toffee
taste: butter, oak, strong cinnamon, caramel
very good definitely improved over standard makers
Pretty good! Lots of sweetness but nothing bold or overpowering. A step above the standard Maker's Mark
Sweet, vanilla, honey
Big vanilla, butter (not buttery), toffee
All the flavors just fade away, nothing new
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
Much different profile from the other Makers products. lacks on flavor, adds more burn
sweet, smooth vanilla flavor
sweet, balanced, mellow, smooth
dark chocolate after notes
people can knock this but it's exactly what a wheated bourbon is meant to be, oak rounds out palate, longer finish with caramel on the back
wheat apparent with flat body and some sweetness that differs from Makers traditional. Not worth the effort
great improvement over standard makers
love this stuff. is my go to bourbon
Upgrade over regular Maker's. Smooth and easy sipper.
Very savory and up front on the palate. Smooth and mellow. A little more sweetness than expected.
nice sweet and caramel flavour followed by a slight spice finish.
Fruit oak and spice, Sadly the chocolate notes and sweetness fall flat in the pallet.
Chocolate, vanilla, oak, sweet, rasins
Fruit, spice, sweet, vanilla
sweet burbon taste lingers long after drinking. cacao and rasins show up from the nosing.
fonish is alot better then mm standard
nice sweet friendly taste and finish
Good but not worth a premium over the original.
i like this better than the standard stock. good notes
The finishing with toasted staves gives nice smoothness and maturity. Fruit notes
Great bourbon but I prefer the original for the price
good. too expensive
super smooth, my favorite of the Makers family
Nice sipping bourbon. Vanilla, cinnamon, and oak, all very smooth. A splash of water dulls the finish considerably, otherwise a long finish with medium spice.
Amped up Maker's; a little more depth and smoothness. Extra aging helps to bring out more oak.
Sweetness with wheat and vanilla.
Carmel and vanilla with an undefined desert sweetness.
A long finish with a nice fade.
Like regular Makers with a softer finish.
Butterscotch, vanilla, cinnamon
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.
Good Bourbon smell
Too strong for my taste
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.
Smooth taste but then has a bite.
Has medium bite
Slightly disappointing, definitely had a bite. Was hoping for a smoother finish.
smooth, sweet, caramel, vanilla
It's pretty good. no bite, sweet,full
It's decent but I wouldn't buy a bottle of it.
a unique bourbon in the best way. a great finish, strong oak, char and a little bitterness. check out the story of how its made, its a pretty cool one.
Nose: oak, floral, tea & smoke. Palate: maple, black pepper & vanilla. Finish: long, slightly astringent.
