It's a BIG DAY for bourbon lovers. Maker's Mark 46 Bourbon Whiskey has just been released. Here's the story. This is Makers Mark first new product in a loooong time. I was told 52 years, but I can't confirm that. Either way, it's been a while, but it's really not that important. What's important is the whiskey. This is what the Master Distiller did. Whiskey barrels storing Maker's Mark were emptied so oak staves could be added inside each. The barrels were then refilled and aged two to three months longer than traditional Marker's Mark, which ages six to seven years. As the whiskey mingles with the staves, it takes on stronger hints of caramel, spice and vanilla. Blah, Blah, Blah! Let's get to the price.
I'm going to put the Maker's Mark 46 on sale for my wholesale cost of $31.09/bottle. I can't do any better than that, so take advantage while you can!
