Maker's Mark Cask Strength
It's Maker's Mark, but a little over the top.
That first taste says it all. Our cask-strength bourbon is the boldest expression of Maker's Mark to date. Bottled at barrel proof, it's remarkably full-flavored yet still smooth and refined thanks to the soft, red winter wheat we have used since the beginning.
At any distillery, a cask-strength whisky straight from the barrel is the truest reflection of who you are and what you do. Here, at Maker's Mark, this is who we are and we're pretty darn happy about it.
Maker's Mark Cask Strength is a new limited bourbon that has a higher alcohol content and is causing a craze like no other. This bourbon is between 108 proof and 114 proof.
What was typically reserved for a taste here and there on a distillery tour is now available in bottles for the first time. Maker's Mark Cask Strength is Maker's Mark, but uncut, unfiltered, and straight from the barrel. It weighs in at a proof between 108-114, quite an uptick from the 90 proof standard bottling. It's Maker's Mark cranked up to eleven, with loads of flavor and character.
"High-proof alcohol takes a little adjusting too but this stuff is amazingly approachable," Samuels
