Maker's Mark Kentucky Straight Bourbon

Today I am reviewing a very classic bourbon- Maker's Mark. This(pictured above) is no ordinary Maker's Mark bottle, it is the one I dipped myself at the Maker's Mark Distillery back in Oct 2018.Maker's Mark is my go to bourbon just like Glenfiddich is for Single Malt. Enjoy my tasting notes and my love for this bourbon in this blog I have already reviewed Maker's 46 in my previous blogs & saved the good stuff for the last. Check out Maker's Mark Distillery Tour & Makers 46 Review .
Maker's Mark is a name that commands respect by all bourbon lovers. It has been churning out high quality golden pour since 1953. Having seen the their bourbon making process myself during my visit, I have a special bond with Maker's Mark as compared to other bourbons.

SJ's Rating- Middle Shelf
It is one of my best bourbon whisky. Solid flavor, robust ABV of 45% & smooth finish. All the essential qualities for a well rounded bourbon. The reason it is in my Middle Shelf is I prefer Maker's 46 (Top shelf) as it  has more flavor & complexity. It would not be justice to Maker's 46 even though this regular Maker's Mark is a classic delicious bourbon. 
Occasions Best Enjoyed- A robust drink suitable for all occasions
Cocktails- Old Fashioned
SJ's Pro Tip- Try Maker's 46 for enhanced oak flavor

A quintessential classic bourbon, give it a shot if you have not. Cheers! to responsible Drinking.
