****Highly Recommneded, F. Paul Pacult (Spirit Journal): "Very pretty bronze color; impeccable clarity. Smells enticingly in the opening round of sniffing of buttered popcorn, new leather and candle wax; following another seven minutes of air contact, the aroma opens up intriguing areas that include dried flowers (honeysuckle), sawdust, oak plank and cereal wafers (like Triscuit, especially). Entry displays the expected Maker's Mark integration and sophistication in the forms of bone dry cereal flavors, with a judicious touch of baking spice (nutmeg); midpalate is round, supple, succulent, toffee-like and gently, but not overly, corny sweet. Finishes gracefully yet with a velvet-coated punch that's lacking in regular Maker's. I welcome the gentelmanly punch. (Dec 2011)"

Wine Spectator: "(style: smooth - usually wheat-based) Like regular Maker's Mark, only deeper, fuller, richer. What was bright and delicate is made smooth and velvety by added aging on seared (vs. charred) oak. There's more oak, more caramel and hot waves of candy sugar and vanilla. There's more oak in the finish, too, keeping it clean. A real difference, and an appealing one. 94 proof. (1/31/12)"

Maker's Mark's first new whisky in 50 years. This is what Michael Bagnulo (Forbes) wrote in comparing 46 to the original Maker's Mark: "Slightly paler in color. Deeper nose. Caramel or honey, with earthier tones, hint of sweet paprika. Unlike Maker’s Mark, which lingers at the front of the tongue, 46 fills the mouth instantly. It’s got a powerful attack that can only partially be attributed to the increased alcohol. Strong vanilla taste on the tip and sides of the tongue, wood smoke flavors in the center of the mouth. Has a distinct textured finish. Forty-six doesn’t just fade on the tongue. Instead, it crests, fades to a light linger, then builds up to a second echo of the first bold attack. Tingling honey and smoke textures move to the tip of the tongue and the back of the throat. Maker’s lingers longest on the tip of the tongue; 46 lingers near the throat with a deep, almost soothing taste."
