Gullet: spice box and toasted oak, with loads of vanilla and caramel.

Finish: boom.

Maker's 46 is created by taking fully matured Maker's Mark bourbon and placing it in a barrel with ten charred wooden staves (all 46) in it to create more wood influence, more caramel, more... YUM. The whisky is then aged in these modified barrels for an additional three months to maximize the flavor impact of the staves. We love Maker's 46 and so when the opportunity arose to create our own private barrel, we jumped at it. Here's how it works:

in 2017, the folks at Maker's worked with Independent Stave (one of the largest cooperages in the world) to create four new stave types to add to the existing Maker's 46 stave, for a total of five possible staves to fill ten stave positions:

Baked American Pure 2 (P2)

Seared French Cuvee (CU)

Maker's 46 (46)

Roasted French Mocha (MO)

Toasted French Spice (SP)

By arranging these staves in different configurations, you could develop up to 1,001 different whisky variants. We've done a few of these Private Select barrels, and we've been able to craft dramatically different whiskies using different stave configurations.
