  • DistilleryMakers Mark

Maker's Mark is the only bourbon distillery to use pure, iron-free limestone spring water exclusively, not city, well or river water. The source is a 10-acre limestone spring-fed lake at the distillery.

The red wax seal you see on the bottle is like a snowflake, no two of them are alike.

They'd be hard pressed to explain what's behind the differences in snowflakes, but it's easy to explain the individuality of our wax patterns.

It's the people who have been hand-dipping the bottles for more than a quarter century. Each one has a different personality that is expressed in the way the wax drips. This is just another step in the Maker's Mark process where people, not machines control the quality of the product.

A very nice whiskey, although not one of my favourites, it is certainly up there as a good bourbon. A very warm taste with a hint of spicy, I found it quite bland like a strong scotch.

I last drank this in New Orleans in March 2004 which is way too long ago, at bars in the French Quarter and at the wedding of one of my best friends. Many memories. It's superb,and I will be now ordering some via this site to re- experience the taste. Oh that it were available more easily here in freezing UK this Winter to warm the soul and evoke memories of the unique atmosphere of New Orleans bars. Fabulous, smooth, compulsive and sophisticated,try it!

Like many bourbons, Makers Mark is relatively unknown to European whisky lovers. Many purists stick to the e-less whiskies (Scotch), or expand their taste to include the Irish ones, but the US-ones: no way. Like many other bourbons, Makers Mark has a strong caramel-like to almost syrupy character, and may not appeal to palates accustomed to the more refined Scottish or Irish single malts. Yet, I tend to like it, though it can do with icy water.

I have to say i was disappointed with this one after Reading numerous people praising it i found it bland with a very short Finnish. I would recommend Elijah Craig 12yr old or buffalo trace at this price range maybe even wild turkey.

We have just returned from NYC (our 3rd trip) and we met a fab guy (Chris)down at seaport who was with his work buddies in a bar. He introduced me to Makers Mark after I had sampled Knob Creek. The difference of the two whiskeys was incredible, Makers Mark was so smooth and mellow with a fabulous aftertaste. After 3 glasses I called it a day and purchased a 70cl bottle to take home, sadly it is not one of my husbands favourites. Since our return home I have found it in a bar in the UK and my husband has bought me a bottle to share with friends, what a great find.
