Not a every day or even every week whiskey drinker, but I have had my fair share. A buddy got me this for my bday and I love it. Smooth with an enjoyable flavor. Definitely a staple for sitting around watching TV or playing cards.
Maker's Mark 101 Bourbon Whisky
Bourbon /50.5% ABV / Kentucky, United States
- Kentucky, United States
- Tasting Notes
- Spicy, Sweet
Maker’s Mark 101 is a rare take on our signature bourbon. Up until now, we’ve only offered this unique expression – bottled at 101-proof – to special guests at the distillery, but here you can offer it to special guests of your own. Stronger notes of sweet, dark spice from the higher proof are met with the classic Maker’s Mark smooth finish. It’s deliberately different, and a rare treat for all that make the pour. The box includes one 750mL bottle of carefully made Maker’s Mark 101.View all products by Maker's MarkCalifornia Residents: Click here for Proposition 65 WARNING

First time trying it. Everything went smoothly excellent service
Because of the liquor’s aging process variation, bourbon’s colors range from light amber to dark caramel and each bottle must contain at least 40% ABV. Bourbon can only be called bourbon if it’s aged in an oak barrel; barrels must be new and are pre-charred to help the liquid extract as much flavor as possible from the wood.
While both whiskey and bourbon are made from the same base ingredients (a predominantly corn mash, yeast and water), a spirit can only be called bourbon if it’s crafted in the United States, surpasses a minimum 40% ABV and is aged in new, charred, white oak barrels. Bourbons are generally on the younger side of the whiskey family (compared to older whiskies like scotch) and thus deliver a sweeter profile.
Raise a glass to science: While rye, barley and wheat all contain the gluten protein, the actual gluten is removed during the bourbon’s distillation process, in which the gluten molecules are separated from the actual distillate used to make the final product.
