Makers 46 Bourbon Whiskey 750 ML Hard to Find !Based on the original recipe for Maker's Mark, Maker's 46 is a new version of an old favorite. To create this interesting spirit, fully matured Maker's Mark is removed from its barrel, so that ten wooden seared staves can be affixed to the inner paneling. Searing the staves caramelizes the sugars in the wood, adding a unique flavor that finishes on the front of the tongue. The fully matured Maker's Mark is then put back in the barrel and aged several more months until it is approved by Master Distiller Kevin Smith.On the nose, Maker's 46 displays pleasant, sweet, and toasty aromas with caramel overtones. The palate is rich and creamy with seared oak flavors that lead to lingering notes of caramel, vanilla, and spice on the powerful finish."This is Makers Mark first creation in 52 years, and it really is a creation," Maker's Mark President Bill Samuels Jr. said. "It's not like it's Maker's with a couple of more years age on it."To create the product, master distiller Kevin Smith started with Maker's and dabbled for more than a year before hitting on the recipe.Whiskey barrels storing Maker's are emptied so workers can insert oak planks inside each. The barrels are refilled and aged two to three months longer than traditional Maker's, which ages six to seven years. As Maker's 46 mingles with the wood, it takes on stronger hints of caramel, spice and vanilla, Smith said.The new whiskey sprung up from consumer demand, Smith said. When Maker's executives met with customers or bartenders, the question invariably arose: When was Maker's going to offer a new whiskey?The product's name is a tip of the cap to the brand's barrel maker and one of its top executives, who came up with the unique idea of using seared French oak planks inside the barrel to draw out more flavors. The product's name reflects the profile number attached to the process.The new product is 94 proof, slightly higher than traditional Maker's.Maker's Mark is part of Deerfield, Ill.-based Fortune Brands Inc., whose brands also include Jim Beam
