With our 2023 Wood Finishing Series release, we’re showcasing the influence of our unique 110 barrel entry proof (BEP). We go in at this lower proof to achieve the one-of-a-kind taste profile Bill Samuels, Sr., established in 1953. Anything less or more wouldn’t truly be or taste like the Maker’s mark you know.
To celebrate our special 110 entry proof, we’ve created an expression that features even more of what you get from a lower entry proof - more wood sugars, more barrel characteristics, and, ultimately, a more flavorful sip.
Our first chapter of the Wood Finishing Series has been a way of honoring all the elements that make Maker’s Maker’s. But with this seventh and final expression, we’re closing the chapter out (with a just-as-exciting chapter to follow). Enjoy accordingly!
Tasting Notes: An expression with prominent wood sugars bringing first strong notes of vanilla, caramel, and sweet spice.
