Bill Samuels, Jr, creator of Makers Mark isn't a fan of line extensions or flavoured bourbons, so when fans of the brand called for something new, he was hesitant for many years and the eventual creation of Makers Mark 46 was a turn up for the books.
The whiskey they created was Makers Mark, aged inside barrels containing seared French oak staves - the 46 comes from the name of the profile that the cooperage had on file for the stave - which created a noticeably bigger and bolder flavour and intensified the vanilla, caramel and spice notes from the original.
A cousin to the original rather than a replica, Makers Mark 46 is an approachable, easy drinking, creamy and soft expression, but with a little more of a kick - perfect for those who like their whiskey on the spicy side.
