Maker's Mark Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whisky
Retail Price ¥400

Maker’s Mark distil their bourbon to the lowest proof of any US whiskey distillery. This proffers a bourbon that retains a rich flavour. Developed by Bill Samuels Sr, he replaced rye with red winter wheat to reduce the burning sensation.
The nose is quite fruity and rich. There are lovely notes of spiced honey and mixed peels, a little malmsey and a touch of cut fruit with toasty oak providing a backbone. The palate is rich and full. There are notes of rye and spice, barley malt, a little nut oil with butterscotch and vanilla. The finish is quite sweet with butterscotch and dry oak spice.
Whether it’s that distinctly sweet aroma, the rich, full flavor or that unforgettably smooth and warm finish, Maker’s Mark, in whatever form, is still Maker’s Mark. The subtle differences in each variation only serve to prove that we’re all part of the same tasteful family.
