It starts with fully matured Maker’s MarkŪ straight out of the barrel. But then it takes a bold twist. We add seared French Oak staves to the barrel, and then finish it a bit longer in our cool aging cellar. The result is a whisky with bolder, more complex flavors, but one whose every sip delivers the smooth, approachable whisky that Maker’s MarkŪ is famous for.
Fully matured Maker’s MarkŪ, barrel finished with oak staves.
Intense flavors; a big crescendo of wood blending perfectly with deep, complex and rich notes of vanilla and caramel
Signature Maker’s MarkŪ deliciously smooth finish.
Made slowly in small batches at our historic distillery in Loretto, Kentucky
Each bottle is hand dipped in our signature red wax
Perfect for sipping neat or on the rocks.
Our unique barrel finishing process creates more complex flavors-while eliminating the bitterness that usually comes with whiskies that are aged longer.
Bold and complex, but as approachable and easy to drink as you’d expect from Maker’s MarkŪ.

As bold a bourbon as they come. The richest aromas of toasted vanilla bean, custard, and cinnamon stick are all apparent on the nose. Luxurious on the palate with tart tatin, baked peach cobbler, subtly piquant clove spice, and coffee with cream. Phenomenal. - 2018 Ultimate Spirits Challenge (Great Value)

If you like standard Maker’s, this version adds spices and leather layered on the trademark sweetness.
