Guys - a good honest Bourbon - snap this stuff up now at 45% proof and this excellent price .....its only a matter of time before some Muppet (an Accountant?) waters it down to 40% and charges the same price (Buffalo Trace) and assumes we are too dim to notice...buy now......

You can't go wrong with MM. Caramel and Honey, Oak-y Vanilla, Butterscotch. Reliably delicious and never disappointing when you've got the bourbon bug.

Respected and beloved across the pond as one of the best Bourbons, period. Enjoy, friends.

had a rather large amount of this at a pub in Islington the other night, as someone who loves all whiskey, this shot right up to the top end of the list. I will defiantly be buying a bottle.

Lovely Bourbon could drink this all day.
Fantastic in an Old Fashioned.

15 Years ago, this stuff was beyond brilliant. Massive complexity, including even a brittle butterscotch theme. perfect. Now it isnt bad, so much as boring. My last glass was last year when Collingwood drew with St Kilda. At least the game was interesting, because this Makers Mark was like watching paint dry.

I was given makers mark as a present as i am very keen on bourbon.This is a fantastic drink and i hope to enjoy it in the future,I'm afraid I'd never heard of it before but will definitely be buying it again.

So good, I became an ambassador. Beautiful rounded flavour.

Headsy and a bit bland, but not bad.

I like this stuff. Compared to Knob Creek (which I also like) it's smoother and sweeter; more caramel, less punchy finish.

Wonderful stuff. Very smooth. Highly recommended.

A big taste makes this worth trying.

A fiery little fellow, can be a tad harsh on the throat when taken straight, but is also smooth, sweet, and leaves a lasting impression. Features honey and vanilla, while there a subtle sherry flavour augmented by a toasted, nutty, leather flavour. I'm usually a malt man (singleton of Dufftown) but I enjoyed this. Rich chocolate and rum on the nose. Enjoy!

MM is a good soild Boubon with a strong warm taste but is missing something.
- Russ, 5th Jan '11
One of the nicest Christmas gifts I have ever received. Smooth, delicious and a pleasure to drink neat, but add a splash of water and the subtle change is like being given a different drink of equally high quality. I'd happily drink Maker's Mark at any time and commend you to try it, too. Happy New Year.

regarding Yalenti notes, with respects, i thinks it is the other way around. woodford is an odd duck in bourbon terms, its nice but uneventful, it misses all the kentucky bourbon flavours, MM has more kick and taste to it, the amerikan version of Grand Marnier vanilla IMHO. well done makersmark pure marksmanship without adding flavour or playing tricks.

Just got back from Vegas and had a glass of makers at the casino wow what a match

makers is truely one of the nicest bourbons i've tasted. I'm not going to go into the deep taste explanation of it as a lot of people including me think it can be described far fetched! but if you haven't tried this buy it! Very smooth, goes down well, and tastes very very good. Not on par with george t stagg which is my fave but for the price makers is amazing.
- andy, 22nd Sep '10
I quite like the taste of Makers Mark and will buy it again. But like one of the previous reviewers Wild Turkey bourbon takes some beating and is my favourite. However I would place Makers Mark on a par with Jack Daniels.
- trevor from UK, 18th Sep '10
i think this bourbon is a little harsh straight, a couple of ice cubes mellows it out a long way. I get strong cereal and aniseed notes. I do prefer woodford reserve and bulleit, bulleit is a little cheaper aswell
