"This is original red wax Makers Mark that received additional aging in barrels containing internal seared French oak staves. The original Makers Mark, being a wheated bourbon (instead of rye, which is typically used), is rather mellow and easy-to-drink. The French oak staves in 46 add firm, complex dry spices (led by warming cinnamon, followed by nutmeg and clove), herb (a suggestion of Green Chartreuse, perhaps?), and some polished leather grip, which dovetails well with Makers trademark layered sweetness (caramel, vanilla, a hint of honey). Im also picking up some dried fruit in the background. The seared oak stave influence is somewhat aggressive, but never to the point of being excessive. "

"The nose finds supersweet deep caramel candy and almond extract, but dont be fooled. On the tongue, its punch-in-the-nose dry and biting. Best served on ice, which takes down the burn and lets the pronounced woody flavors come through: lots of oak, strong tea and cigar tobacco."
About Maker's Mark
Maker's Mark is unusual in that no rye is used as part of the mash. Instead red winter wheat is used, along with corn (the predominant grain) and malted barley. During the planning phase of Maker's Mark, Samuels allegedly developed seven candidate mash bills for the new bourbon. As he did not have time to distill and age each one for tasting, he instead made a loaf of bread from each recipe and the one with no rye was judged the best tasting. Samuels also received considerable assistance and recipes from Stitzel-Weller owner Pappy Van Winkle, whose distillery produced the wheated Old Fitzgerald and W. L. Weller bourbons.[20]

Maker's Mark is aged for around six years, being bottled and marketed when the company's tasters agree that it is ready. Maker's Mark is one of the few distillers to rotate the barrels from the upper to the lower levels of the aging warehouses during the aging process[citation needed] to even out the differences in temperature during the process. The upper floors are exposed to the greatest temperature variations during the year, so rotating the barrels ensures that the bourbon in all the barrels have the same quality and taste.

Great to celebrate POTUS 46
"Last Makers Mark I had was maple flavored and this was a great change of pace. Full rich taste and warming on cold winter days.Plus #46 was very appropriate for January 20, 2021 and inaugural festivities."
