Makers Mark Bourbon Review
Maker's Mark is one of Kentucky's classic bourbons, and the brand and the Samuels are largely responsible for bourbon's resurgence in the 80s and 90s.

Maker’s Mark DNA Project Review

Maker's Mark DNA Project Review - Bourbon
The Maker's Mark DNA project set out to experiment with 4 different barrel entry proofs: 110, 115, 120 & 125. The bourbons were all distilled on the same day, and aged in the same warehouse, on the same middle floor. They were not rotated. The barrels were aged for 8 years, which is longer than the usual ~6 years for Maker's Mark. They were bottled at barrel proof, and if memory serves me, they were bottled as single barrels so the proofs will vary across each batch.

Maker's Mark CommUNITY Batch Review Bourbon
I hope you enjoy my Maker's Mark CommUNITY Batch Review! This is will be the second year that The LEE Initiative and Maker's Mark have released the CommUNITY Batch. Maker's Mark has donated all of the bourbon, so the proceeds go entirely to support the cause! The first CommUNITY Batch was released last year, and raised over $500K from 34 blended barrels of whiskey! The money provided assistance to many hospitality industry employees who were affected by the pandemic.

The Whisky Drop by Maker’s Mark Distillery

The Whisky Drop is a new service from Maker's Mark Distillery. Taking advantage of Kentucky's recently passed House Bill 415, which allows the direct shipping of alcohol from producers directly to consumers, Maker's Mark launched this program early this year. There is a shipment every season and each contains two bottles of bourbon.
